You can make your own microwave popcorn.
That was the sound of your mind being blown. I’ll give you a minute to take it all in.
The next time you see popcorn on sale, instead of grabbing the microwavable stuff grab the plain kernels (you get 6 times as much for the same price) & some lunch-size paper bags (about $1 for 100) instead.
DIY Microwave Popcorn
popcorn kernels (about 1/4 cup per person, up to 1 cup per bag)
oil (about 1 Tbsp per 1/4 cup of kernels)
Step 4: Place bag on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for about 2 minutes, for larger amounts you may have to add time. Keep it cooking until the popping slows to once every 4-5 seconds.
step 6: Top as desired and eat!
