Paper Bag Popcorn

Paper Bag Popcorn has totally changed my life! That may sound a bit dramatic, but when I think back to how much money I’ve spent over the years on microwave popcorn that comes only 3 packs to a box I’m sure it would be a hefty number.

I grew up with a mother who had a big bowl of popcorn waiting for my brother and I after school every day as our snack while we did homework and watch TV. To this day popcorn is one of my favorite snack foods no matter the time of day. While I love popcorn made in a pot over the stove, there are days I don’t have the time and resist cleaning yet another pot, so I reach for the pre-packaged variety in the box.

My husband, who I lovingly refer to as the food police came across an article pointing out the fact that microwave popcorn bags have BPA in the lining of the microwave bags, so I started making this version. This paper bag popcorn recipe couldn’t be any easier to make and is really fun too. Watch this paper bag popcorn video to learn my quick tips for popcorn perfection.

Every bag you pop costs just pennies, you can use organic popcorn kernels to make it GMO free and it takes no extra hydrogenated oils. The best part for me, though, is that there’s no clean up. Just pop it up, serve your fluffy popcorn in a paper bag, shake in any topping you love like nutritional yeast, butter or honey and cinnamon and you’re ready to go!

    Hi! I've used this idea tons of time, for exactly the reasons you mentioned, then came across some article somewhere that standard lunch bags (what I've used) are not food safe and/or the glue isn't. I felt defeated. What kinds of paper sacks do you use? Thanks!

      I use standard brown paper lunch bags that come 100 for $3. The brown paper should be totally food safe too!

      Molly, I've seen that warning about paper bags in microwave too! See this link, last paragraph. http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/food-safety-education/get-answers/food-safety-fact-sheets/appliances-and-thermometers/cooking-safely-in-the-microwave/cooking-safely-in-the-microwave-oven
      You could skip the bag and make popcorn in glass bowl, and cover with a small, microwave- safe glass plate? It's exhausting keeping up with all the latest safety recommendations.

    I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR.LOVE for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loose my boyfriend, I required help until i found a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 4 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR.LOVE released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how love much we have share together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe.All thanks goes to DR.LOVE for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the [email protected] Are you undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. that is his email address [email protected]

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Dr Isikolo brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am from iceland. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Dr Isikolo for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Dr Isikolo. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Dr Isikolo said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him. Email: [email protected] You can also Whatsapp him on +2348133261196

Some men today no longer enjoy their spouse any more, due to the size and weak erection of the penis, because of this act their ladies goes out to have sex with those men that their penis is bigger still strong and stand erect. This act breaks marriages or relationship.

Every day and night i think of him and always wish he could come back to me, I was really worried and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. 11hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, All thanks to Dr Unity. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr.Unity is real spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast.

    I meant a friend who directed me to spell caster called Dr Ben online who help people to solve their relationship and marriage problems. I was really skeptical before i wrote to him and he told me not to worry about anything, that i should give him a day for him to cast a spell for me and after 2 days i was really surprised my ex called me and started begging for me to take her back . That is how my ex came back to me and she no longer think of other people, but me and me alone and am happy my money was not wasted.
    Write the Doc on drbenharbalhome @ gmail. com or whatsapp +(1) 8287990994
