Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn

Gone are the days when I wouldn’t think of eating a bowl of popcorn unless it was laced with butter. My mom used to melt extra for when we got down to the bottom of the bowl and heaven forbid, there were white puffs without any yellow! That’s the way my hubby enjoyed it, too. Not anymore (unless he’s buttering behind my back). We can no longer partake of the extra calories.

Popcorn is his favorite snack. Of all the snacks he could eat, it’s one of the better choices. He prefers making it the old-fashioned way…in a metal popper with a crank handle. I just bought him a new one last month, because the old one was worn out. Got a great deal at Home Goods! Anyway, he likes Orville’s yellow corn. He claims it has more flavor than the white. He makes it with vegetable oil and has even used olive oil to see if it added any flavor. He liked it. And I’m okay with that, because if he’s going to snack away and eat a giant bowl of something, better it be popcorn.

Me? I like Kettle Korn. Being from the North, I had never experienced the light sweetness of Kettle Korn, until moving to the Bluegrass state. One taste and I Googled for a recipe. I found a wonderful one that the mister could use in his metal cooker and he obliged me, though it scorched the bottom of the pan. Orville must have run across Kettle Korn, too, as I can now buy the microwave versions in both regular and Smart Pop. Which do I prefer? The regular, but my hand reaches for the light variety every time I buy it. It’s still very good. In fact, all of Orville’s popcorn is very good. Gone are the days when I had to nibble the puff off the kernel for fear of breaking a tooth. Orville’s corn is light and fluffy, just the way I like it.

So, grab your favorite movie, a mug of hot chocolate (or chocolate milk for those of you in warm climes), and a big bowl of popcorn. Enjoy!
