Plain unbuttered popcorn

A lot of diet books say this is a good healthy snack but I totally cannot stand plain popcorn. It's only good loaded up with butter and that is not on the menu right now.

I've tried different seasonings and that has made it a little better but it still tastes too dry to me.

I think it's ok sometimes although I wouldn't want to eat it regularly because as you said it is quite dry!

I cook mine in fry light occasionally and it tastes kinda buttery! I always whack a load of salt on though

I like mine with lots of butter and a fair amount of seasoning. To con myself into making it 'healthier' I always use lite butter. I'd like to believe it has less calories, but it tastes just as good to me.

I actually like mine plain and unbuttered. I usually have a glass of juice or water to go with them so that I don't choke. I also like to add some color or flavor to give them an extra kick.

I tried some of the imitation butter sprinkles you shake on the popcorn. Then I read the label and it was chock full of chemicals. Yuck.

I'm not a huge popcorn fan. The husks get stuck in my teeth and it upsets my stomach sometimes. Plus, have you ever noticed that the microwave popcorn smells sort of like stinky feet? I do like popcorn when I am at the cinema, but that's usually pretty rare.

I usually treat myself to the small individual size bags of microwave popcorn once or twice a week. I can't stand it plain so I eat the lite butter or sometimes kettle corn, if I can find it in the small bags.

I love popcorn! What if you used some Nusalt (artificial salt) instead of butter? Or you could try some olive oil as a butter substitute. I eat all sorts of popcorn: Cracker Jacks, white cheese popcorn, cheddar cheese popcorn, regular popcorn etc.
