    Salt and sweet popcorn is called Kettle Corn over here, and it's awesome. Usually only found at county fairs and the like, though.

    But anyway, all this flavoured popcorn nonsense and its fad as the healthy snack du jour just reminds me of the ricecake craze from a few years back. Tasteless shite sold for a premium, purporting to be healthy but only because it's low calorie - the flavourings usually have so many chemicals in you might as well just eat an air freshener.

    Popcorn is so last year, 2013 is the year of the popcorn-ricecake.

    I'm not a huge fan of the pre-packed popcorn - always seems a little stale. Still, I suppose if you squirt enough chemicals on it, it'll taste good.

    Not that Orville Redenbacher's microwave stuff is any better - probably to the contrary. They've got one now that turns into a bowl while it's popping, though... it doesn't get any easier than that!

    Not as stale as the stuff cinemas charge 6 quid for.

    Maker, schmaker. Just fill the largest pan you have (that has a lid) with a one-deep layer of kernels (very cheap from local corner shop), add oil to coat all. Put lid on pan. Place on high heat, swirl them about occasionally. When they really start to pop reduce the heat to medium. When there is more than 2 seconds between pops again, turn off the heat. Enjoy.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
