Microwave Popcorn Single-Serve Packets

Do you really need to eat the whole bag?

(my wife's idea, btw)

Sometimes you want to eat popcorn, so you throw a bag into the microwave, and start chompin'. About halfway through, though, you've had your fill of popcorn. If no-one is sharing it with you, then you end up throwing the rest of the bag out (you can save it for later, but most people would agree that cold microwave popcorn is nowhere near as good as the hot variety).

So why not a smaller size popcorn packet? Since there is less popcorn in a bag, by the time you get to the last piece, it is still warm (as opposed to eating cold buttery popcorn). And if you feel a need to have some more, just pop another bag.

       Good idea. Just ensure that you use *real* butter on this croissant [see link].

       Use a forced-air popper.   

       Something tells me that, on a drawing board somewhere, is a complete and ready to pop caramel corn that is made from TVP

       Eat faster. I'm amazed you can't buy this though. Maybe they assume no one wants a little bit of popcorn.

       Popped. I bought single-serving microwave popcorn in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Can't remember the brand.

       why don't you buy popping corn? it's really not that much more work than the microwave stuff. And a whole lot cheaper. Go by trial and error to find how much you need to put int he saucepan.

Does anyone know of a late 1970s/early 1980s group that sang childrens songs; I had a couple of 12 inch records by them, and I think they were Canadian. Well, from them I remember:
You put the oil in the pot
and you let it get hot
you put the popcorn in
and you start to grin
Sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle

       That's a particularly gnarly link, [sdm]. Thanks.

       Your wish has been granted. Our good friend Orville makes Mini Bags in Movie Theater Butter and Smart Pop Butter (94% Fat Free). I agree that these are great for portion control. They are about 1/2 the size of regular bags = perfect!

       6% of the serving is fat. Whoa.
bristolz, Apr 21 2003
  

       How can you possibly get tired of eating popcorn? Must eat at least two bags. Less is not more, I want more!
But I guess this could be translated to many different serving sizes, and as such recieves a +
