Bagged Popcorn vs Air Popped

If it’s a competition taste, air-popped will win every time.

My family stopped buying microwavable popcorn years ago, the taste just isn’t up to par.

I have a silicone steamer that I pop my popcorn in (I add a spray of coconut oil, add the popcorn, and zap it for about 5 minutes).

If you don’t want to buy a popcorn maker, you can use pre popped popcorn like Boom Chicka Pop or Skinny Pop. I personally like to buy these in bulk at Costco.
