The Great Popcorn Scandal!!!
The other day, I was at the supermarket, trying to buy popcorn. Not popcorn in a microwave package, just popcorn - in a bag, jar, whatever.
No one working there had ever _heard_ of popcorn without the microwave packaging! NOT ONE PERSON!
EVERYONE! LISTEN UP!!!!
POPCORN IN MICROWAVE PACKAGING IS A HUGE SCAM!
!!!!!!!!A PLAIN BROWN PAPER BAG WORKS JUST AS WELL!!!!!!!
Don't believe me? TRY IT! Get some popcorn.
IT"S TEN TIMES CHEAPER WITHOUT THE MICROWAVE PACKAGING!!!!!
Get a paper bag about the right size. Throw a quarter cup of popcorn in and try it in the microwave. When there's about five seconds between pops, take it out. It's done! No fake butter. No chemicals. You can add real butter! You can add Tabasco sauce, honey, cheese, yeast, (I've heard of all of these at one time going on popcorn) whatever it is that strikes your fancy.
Empower your popcorn whimsy!
You can reuse the paper bag! You don't have to eat their chemicals! You can save a LOT of money and get better quality popcorn!
Please someone, make this post a best of Craigslist. Try it first. If it works for you, please help to spread the word.
Take back the POPCORN!
this is in or around A Supermarket Near You!
