I love popcorn. It’s low calorie and it’s also very filling. Yes, there is sodium concerns, but I just drink a lot of water to offset that. What stinks is that you usually have to pay an arm and a leg to get it at the movie theater and getting those microwave-ready popcorn bags at the grocery store can be really expensive too. So.. what’s a person to do? Well, there is a solution out there, and it’s pretty darn hard to beat.
All it takes, according to YouTube personality Jordan Randomness, is half a cup of popping corn and a simple paper lunch bag – the type that you put you or your child’s lunch in. Pour the popping corn in the bag, folding the top three times to make sure that it’s firmly shut. Then you put the bag on its side in the microwave. Next, and this is a must-do, you flatten the bag so that there’s no air inside. Set the timer for 2 minutes and just watch.
The most important thing to do is listen once the microwave has started. Once you don’t hear any popping sounds, then that means that it’s finished. Take out the bag and open it carefully – there’s going to be a lot of steam coming out. That’s normal. Then empty the contents of the bag into a popcorn bowl, add some powders like cheddar cheese or butter. Then just enjoy your bowl of popcorn.
Much as I love microwaveable popcorn – it’s great when we all have movie night as a family over the weekend, it is true that that popcorn as a ton more chemicals than the way Randomness showed how to make it. Also, am I the only one that thinks that “Randomness” is the best last name, EVER? It’d be interesting to see how that first came about with his ancestors. I’d be that a dictionary or thesaurus was involved.
What did you think of this? Seems like a much better way than having to spring for a box of microwaveable popcorn – cheaper too. Do you have other popcorn suggestions? Tell us all about it in the comments section. Also, please “Like” us on Facebook.
