Few things smell more delicious than microwave popcorn as it is cooking. The flavor fills up a room (or more). Sadly, the taste often does not match the bouquet. Cardboard comes to mind. Thus, the microwave popcorn quest.

I have tried many brands of microwave popcorn. I really like Pop Secret HomeStyle microwave popcorn. But I fix it up to make it better.

Microwave the popcorn as per the directions. While the bag is heating, get out some Morton's Popcorn Salt and some "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter." After the popcorn is finished popping (go by sound, not time), dump about 25% of the bag in a bowl. Cover the top layer with "I Can't Believe" and then add a little Morton's Popcorn Salt. Add another 25% of the popcorn and add a more "I Can't Believe" and a little Morton's. Repeat this procedure two more times. By spraying and salting every 25%, you assure yourself of a great taste treat with minimal stuff the doctor's don't want you eating. Moderation is the key. Don't do this every night. Save it for special occasions and indulge away. It will be worth the fat, sodium and calories, and the taste will match the smell.
