Normally, I use canola or peanut oil, fresh locally grown corn, & sea salt. It is absolutely delicious with very few hulls or unpopped kernels. It is much better (& better for you) than microwave or any other popping method using oil.
This stuff was stale, & had way too much sodium. The coconut oil mixture was disgusting. The taste was so bad that I threw the rest of it away after a few handfuls. I had split the original batch in half, & gave 1/2 to my neighbor, who usually will eat anything. Even she thought it was poor quality. Now I’m stuck with 2 boxes of this junk.
I gave it 1 star because every kernel did pop, and the cooking time was quick. But I’m going back to, & sticking with, my old method. I think it must be the locally grown corn (FRESH!) that spoiled me.
Strange coconut aroma
So? I tried Paragon popcorn oil in place of the Wabash product and had no more “smelly” issues. Neither product offers much in the way of actual product content. Hydrogenated or non-hydrogenated coco oil? The latter better than the former….both not so good, anyway.
If you pop corn once in a while with Paragon + flavacol, you will not go wrong. I wouldn’t consume this combo very often, like maybe once or twice a month?…….by the same token, just like eating fat laden prime rib, potato chips, hotdogs, all the good stuff, is bad for your cholesterol lol.
Sadly all the snacks and fast foods we enjoy…..sucks.
C’est la vie.
The first time the popping liquid was runny and the second time it was solid. Each time it didn’t work as the directions said it would and when it does finally start to pop it burns………. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED – sorry I bought 3-5 packs
The best popcorn money can buy
Now that we’ve tried it around the house, nothing else will do.
Old time taste
Great popcorn, not a great price
But you should be aware that most resellers are selling this stuff for more than you would pay if you just buy direct from the source (and yes it is available online popcornpopper dot com)
$1.10 to $1.60 per pouch depending on the volume you buy is closer to what you should be paying, not $2 and up.
Great tasting and easy-to-make popcorn, but no size choice.
Pro tip: at Sam’s Club you can buy a big (2 pound) container of Act II buttery popcorn salt for less than $4. It’s just like the popcorn salt that comes in these packs – I add a teaspoon to the popper anytime I pop corn without these packs, and it definitely helps. Adds a yellow color too.
Awesome!! Order this popcorn!
This year I decided I’m going to break out the popcorn machine and use it again, but I needed to get different popcorn. I wanted to allow myself enough time this year that if I didn’t like the popcorn I ordered, I would have time to order replacements before the party. Last week I ordered the Real Theater popcorn kits and OMG! I LOVE it! It tastes really good like movie theater popcorn or the popcorn you get at the popcorn carts at the zoo or amusement parks. My house smelled really good like popcorn you just had to have. I even stepped outside for a little bit and walked back in to see how the smell would hit you if you were just walking in the house. It was fabulous!
Tastes like the movies!
Wabash Valley Farms is the best popcorn you can get outside of your local multi-plex (though I really like target popcorn too). You don’t need the whirly popper as indicated on the package instructions – I always cook it on the stovetop in a large covered pot; my sister cooks it in one of those fancy carnival poppers.
Each pack contains 5 pouches of product. Each pouch contains popping oil, popcorn, and a buttery salt topping (which I only use about half of – it is very fine and very salty). For those that like additional butter, you can add it after popping. While I cannot attest to the exact amount of popcorn yielded, it does do a good job of filling up my 32-cup Tupperware Thatsa bowl. Thatsalotta popcorn.
The unit cost is about $2.40 per pack (or $1.66 per pouch in the 15 pack), which may seem high when comparing it to microwave popping corn, but you just cannot compare the quality and taste (and when compared to theater popcorn, it is a fraction of the cost). Orville Redenbacher has nothing on Wabash!
BEST POPCORN EVER!
Movie theater GOOD!
User error, or chewy popcorn?
The best popcorn I have ever had!!!!
great popcorn! just like the theater!
Not so theatre style
Not so good
Not so, unfortunately. Yes, the product is well packaged and easy to pop. And yes, almost 100% of the kernels do pop. Sadly, this ease of use and good popping characteristics don’t add up to great tasting popcorn. It’s hard to articulate what is “bad” about this popcorn, and perhaps it comes down to personal preference.
For one, the aroma of this popcorn is simply not pleasing. It certainly does smell when it’s cooking, but I wouldn’t associate the smell with movie theater popcorn. It’s a sort of sickly, sweet smell that sticks to the back of your throat. It’s also a smell that lingers in your house for hours after cooking this popcorn.
The finished product isn’t much better. The popped corn is very yellow, I suppose to give the impression of “real” butter. The taste, however, is not what I’d call butter. The best way I could put it would be “artificial” and “thick”. “Thick”, as in, a thick taste that sticks in your mouth and leaves a funky aftertaste. The end result is a chemically, over-processed taste. Now, granted, I don’t frequent “real theaters” but about once every decade, so it’s possible this is what passes as popcorn these days. Personally, I think you can achieve much better results with your Whirley-Pop using one of the many *real* popping corns available on this site, and then adding your own *real* butter, to your taste.
