  1. That’s hilarious, my favorite still is the one with all of the popcorn falling on Winston’s head. His facial expression is like, “What’s happening….” Ha ha ha!!!!

  2. I love flavored popcorn! These variations all sound delicious. What would be the best time to throw on the add-ins though? I notice that whenever I try to throw powder spices on my popcorn after it’s out of the stovetop pot nothing will stick. I think they would probably burn if I put them in at the same time as the coconut oil and kernels. Anyone have tips for getting the flavorings to stick?

    1. I was wondering the same thing!

      I have a microwave popper that uses no oil at all, I was thinking that I might be able to spray a little oil on the popped popcorn and add powdery toppings right away? I can’t imagine I’d be spraying an entire tablespoon (what it calls to add to the pot in the directions above), but I wonder if a spritz would be enough to make it stick.

      If anyone has a solution, please post it! :)

  3. I love popcorn! Typically what’s a serving size of popcorn?? Cause… my belly likes to eat 1/2 the bag, lol!

  4. I love the suggestions!

    Is there ever a chance for a Perfect Fit seasoning!? That would be a bomb idea!

  5. These all sound DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to try them all! I also agree with Corrine, perfect fit seasoning would be bomb!!!!!

  6. The only one I haven’t tried is the lemon one which I really want cuz it sounds great! The cinnamon sugar is my favorite but I use honey instead of sugar cuz the sugar doesn’t stick (it tastes like cinnamon toast crunch!). The almond butter/honey is a very close second (tastes like caramel corn!). I don’t like the nacho one so much. The trail mix one is good too obviously.
