  1. Extra Sharp Cheddar CHEEZEY!!! Oh I have no idea where I would put this thing, but I would love it so, I think I might have room in my bed with me, I don’t think my husband would mind….he knows how much I love popcorn.

  2. Stephanie Asuncion

    I love my popcorn, hot and fresh with just the right amount of salt and lightly buttered. I pop it the old fashioned way, so I really would love the popper:) Many times I’ve ran into our local movie theater just to get a bag of popcorn:)

  3. Juliann Bramely

    I love freshly popped popcorn on the stove in my heavy bottomed pot with some good olive oil and a little fresh rosemary & paremesan cheese sprinkled on

  4. Jillian

    I love popcorn – its my favorite treat! My favorite is butter with salt – perfect combo! But I have tried olive oil and rosemary which was a great version too!

  5. Bryansgyrl

    Unfortunately, I like my popcorn buttery! I love it with starbursts too! I was just telling my husband we need to buy one of these, I love popcorn!

  6. Bec Tracy

    I LOVE POPCORN! My daughter called it cropcrorm when she was little so that’s what we all still call it. =) I love buttery and salted cropcrorm, and I also enjoy making caramel corn as a crunchy snack. Yum Yum Yum!

  7. mjsssss

    I like popcorn salty with butter no salt butter..yummmmeee, used to go the movies when I was tiny one and get a tiny bag of popcorn and ate it with milk duds, even if the serial movie was a dud the popcorn and milk duds were not..and for 25 cents for two serial movies, the popcorn say a dime & milk duds say a quarter what was there not to like, walked to the movies with my brothers not far from our house and enjoyed the saturday mornings for little money and delish treats..those days are gone and more gone but the memories of that popcorn, milk duds and two movies are your blog, remember those popcorn machines well..just saying..mjs from

  8. ooooh i love my popcorn with Onion and Garlic !!!!!
    although one time i ate a white chocolate candy coating and it was HEAVEN…..

    i hope i win!! 🙂

  9. Sheila

    We put a little Johnny’s Garlic Bread Spread powder in the butter and pour it on the popcorn, then sprinkle with salt and Parmesan cheese. It’s so yummy! You just have to be careful to not use too much garlic or your mouth will taste like garlic for 3 days. :o)

  10. Keshakeke

    I love popcorn drizzles with caramel sauce, melted white chocolate and milk chocolate. Sweet and salty! Yummy in my Tummy!!!!

  11. Louanne

    Favorite popcorn = buttered, salted and Parmesan cheese on top. My dad made it for my brothers and me 3 – 4 times a week when we were young. 🙂

  12. Krissy

    I love it all different ways. Sweet, salty, salt and pepper, kettle corn, chocolate, caramel, etc. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  13. Jenni

    I like popcorn about any way it can be made. I can eat mass quantities of the buttery,salty variety. I have a hankering to try to flavor some at home with wasabi.

  14. Char

    I like sweet and salty. This would be so cool to have. It definitely would be used A LOT at church for children’s and teen’s activities.

  15. Kathie Young

    My husband eats popcorn everyday. He loves it buttery and salty. We have recently started making our own cinnamon popcorn that we love. We love popcorn at our house!

  16. Cheryl Newton

    I love the 94% fat-free pop-up bowls in the microwave. But if I’m air popping some for a recipe, I’ve been known to grab some just-out-of-the-popper naked stuff!

  17. My very favorite way to make popcorn is on top of the stove in a kettle with OLIVE OIL, popcorn and popcorn salt…then just let it pop! I dont even need butter on it! (and I used to love it with tons o’butter!..not anymore!)

  18. Christina Balsom

    It has to be sweet for us, tried the buttery one and the salty but we like it sweet, just had some yesterday and watched Harry Potter I with my big girl.

  19. Donna Z.

    I prefer my popcorn sweet…meaning Kettle Corn. Nothing tastes better than getting kettle corn that has just been dumped out of the kettle. Mmm 😉

  20. Jessca miller

    Oh, I’m all about the butter! In fact, at the theaters I ask for a convenience cup which I fill with butter to take into the theater with me. Then when I’ve eaten the top portion of the popcorn and all the buttery goodness is gone I can add some more. Brilliant, I say!

  21. Donna Hurst

    Love popcorn. I really love caramel popcorn. I enjoy receiving your blog posts in my e-mail. Would love to win this, my husband has always wanted one like this. He pops popcorn all the time, his specialty is honey popcorn.

  22. Brenda M.

    I like mine lightly buttered and lightly salted…unless I’m at an amusement park, then I like the sweet popcorn.

  23. Tiffany

    I am addicted to popcorn. I would eat it every night if I could. Although I can eat popcorn any way (I recently made a wonderful white chocolate peppermint popcorn), if it isn’t regular old butter and salt popcorn, it just leaves me still craving more. Actually, I eat the first half of my popcorn plain, to curb my salt craving, but then I eat the last half with m&m’s to satisfy my need for sweet. I love popcorn!

  24. Cec

    Well – I’m sorry, as I beat you all!!! My father owned a gas station for many years as I was growing up. I am now 55! One year a traveling salesman came through with pans, which my father bought and I put them in my “hope” chest. (if anyone remembers that:) I have one pan left – my popcorn pan. It has traveled the country with me and has a rubber band on the handle. It HAS made the best white popcorn and every gathering I attend wants my “popcorn”. How do you make this???? “In my special pan”. The pan has bit the dust -aghhhh – I need something to replace it for the “popcorn mom”. I love making a batch, the first night with butter and mac and cheese/cheese sprinkles! The rest of the week for snacking and YES – I eat popcorn for dinner!!!

  25. mary coleman

    We like our popcorn fixed the old fashioned way. On the stove in a pot with some oil.There is no other taste like it. Salted and buttered of course. Thanks for the chance to win this.

  26. Vanessa

    I’m a follower of you already. I love seeing I have a new email from you!! Your recipes are out of this world!!

  27. Susan Zebal

    I LOVE POPCORN~ especially the kind at the movies. But boy is it killing me to go and pay $10.00 for a tub of popcorn – Buttery, of course. So, I’d really love to win this theatre popcorn popper.

  28. I love pop corn. As a matter of fact, I eat it at least 4 days a week. This sweet little machine would be the ticket for me. Home style butter and salt is my preference….Mmm-m-m-m-m-m-m!

  29. CIndy

    By far the best is to put HOT popped popcorn into a bowl and quickly place a handfull of chocolate chips over popcorn and within five minutes chips have melted into the popcorn. Make sure to have few napkins handy while eating.

  30. What a fun give away! I like my popcorn extra salty and buttery! Yumm! I also like the same salty, buttery popcorn with melted white chocolate on it! Now ky girls like theirs with parmesan cheese!

    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Hugs, Wini

  31. Andrea

    I love salty, buttery popcorn. My boyfriend turned me onto sprinkling a little Lowry’s seasoning salt, and that’s pretty OK too. My absolute favorite, though, is Orville Redenbacher’s Popping and Topping, with it totally unhealthy but is the closest you can get to Movie Theater popcorn without the $12.00 ticket!

  32. Annette

    I love any popcorn! We go through a lot of it here, I swear my DH is addicted to it and will sometimes make 2-3 batches a day! But I think my favourite is sweet.

  33. Cathie Stratton

    Our popcorn has to be kettle corn, that sweet/salty tastes gets to me every time. OOH!! and throw in some peanuts Yum_O—pass the bowl!!!

  34. Pam Shank

    I am thinking my 11 grandkids could sure get a lot of enjoyment out of this. Many family gatherings we could use this at. Great give-away
    We prefer our popcorn buttery.

  35. Salty and sweet! Spray your air popped popcorn with a little Pam, sprinkle with a touch of salt, sprinkle with the sweetener of your choice and finally, sprinkle with hot chocolate mix (Swiss Miss, etc., not cooking cocoa). Oh. my. crimony. So good!

  36. Yum! We love popcorn at our house. Buttery is usually first choice, but sweet kettle corn is always good too!!! But I’m sure that ANY flavor is better in a theater style popper rather than the microwave!

  37. Leesa Gentry

    I love carmel popcorn but just LOVE popcorn. My husband loves his dripping in butter not quite that crazy but would love to have this machine!

  38. Sherrie Gonzalez

    Theater popcorn with peanut M&M’s mixed in. I had never tried it until I married my husband 11 years ago!!

  39. VickiT

    Oh my gosh! Wheeeeeee I have always wanted to have one of these in my own home!!!!

    I love buttered popcorn but every once in awhile I just have to have my homemade kettle corn.

  40. We have 12 grandkids that would love coming to Grandma’s house even more if we had this awesome popcorn machine! We love Kettle-type popcorn the best, honey-butter with a little salt second-best, and caramel corn, too!!

  41. Chayal

    On special days, homemade caramel corn with peanuts, but there’s no better snack than kettle corn, a little salty, a little sweet 🙂

  42. Ad K.

    Our whole family LOVES popcorn! With the grandkids and friends over, we really need one of these. I love it with melted butter and salt but we make it several other ways too. With a big crowd over it’s hard for me to keep up with the demand…I need to win one of these!!!

  43. Renee T.

    Real butter & extra fine sea salt! My two little girls and I feast over a big bowl of popcorn at least once a week.. one of my favorite traditions!

  44. Carol G

    I LOVE Kettle Corn (made in a real cast iron kettle), but until the fair gets here I’ll take it with a little salt 🙂 Thank you for the chance at this great giveaway.

  45. Dandy

    Hi there! My favorite way to eat popcorn is to use a seasoning packet of Buffulo Wing Sauce. Just sprinkle on the dry seasoning on top of buttered popcorn. So yummy!

  46. Charlene

    Wow …cool give away! Popcorn is an all time @ our house! Nothing is better than munching on popcorn while watching a movie! Buttery w/ salt or seasonings makes it very tasty! Thanks

  47. Emily C

    I definitely prefer my popcorn buttery! The more the butter.. typically the better. And with salt (but not too much).

  48. Stacey W.

    I love popcorn all ways . . . with tons of butter and salted, with a white cheddar topping, and with chocolate drizzled over it. You really can’t go wrong and I hope I win this.

  49. I already subscribed to your blog feed through Google reader. (this might be the first time ever that I’ve qualified for every entry possible in a giveaway – yay!)

  50. wendy

    I like salty sweet like caramel or kettle corn. Pick me, pick me! I teach in the inner city and my kids would love popcorn Friday!!!!

  51. Marily from CA

    Buttered popcorn is the best, but during the holidays I found this fantastic spiced popcorn – nutmeg, cinnamon,and brown sugar. Yumness…

  52. Hindel

    I love it either lightly salted with a little butter or with parmesan and oregano.
    I will always eat it covered in chocolate with peanuts.

  53. Tina Knudson

    Oh my!! I love my popcorn sweet, salty and full of chocolate all at once. Popcorn drenched in melted white chocolate with reeces pieces mixed in. Let sit then serve. Oh so good!!!!!

  54. Keri

    I love my popcorn just like it comes from the movies BEFORE butter. But at home I like it a little bit buttery and salty. My son LOVES the extra butter though, so sometimes we disagree on which kind to buy.

  55. Cecilia

    I love my popcorn with butter and salt and a movie and someone to snuggle up to while I watch the movie and eat the popcorn 🙂

  56. Kristen Fisher

    I like my popcorn pooped with coconut oil and then I melt cheddar cheese on top and pour over fresh melted butter. Yummy!

  57. Sandie Gallagher

    I LOVE, LOVE, love my popcorn ! I think I have eaten at least 3 swimmingpools full of it in my life time…. I like it with real butter and salt. mmmmmmmmMMMM!mmm!

  58. Sara

    Are you kidding me?! I would LOVE this!! I am a popcorn nut and prefer stove popped popcorn – movie theater popped is my favorite though! I like it salty the best but also love me some kettle corn!!

  59. Nancy Wolthoff

    Has to be salty and buttery theater popcorn! It is to die for and the ONLY way to eat it (course you can throw in a handfull of M & M’s to add a little sweet to the mix!!

  60. Brenda

    I like mine salted, sometimes with butter and throw in some M&M’s. Of course, I love Kettle Corn sometimes also. 🙂

  61. Sage

    Growing up, my dad would always ask them to “layer the butter” at the movie theater (instead of just putting it on top), so that’s what I love now.
    I also love white chocolate popcorn every now and then too!
