When I was a kid, on Halloween my mom gave out the best treat.
She popped popcorn in oil so the sprinkling of salt would stick. She would take a sandwich baggie and put one cup of popped popcorn in and then maybe 1/8 or so of a cup of regular M&Ms. then close it up with a little piece of tape. It was colorful and almost healthy! Just loose, not a gross sticky popcorn ball. A little candy and some lightly salted popcorn.

I loved the combination, especially the bit of salt after all the mass sugar consumption of the holiday. Since we rarely lived anywhere there were many trickrtreaters, there were allways leftovers. I got those in my lunch for several weeks after. yummm.

She said ur mom was a hippy, and it wasn't salt but LSD or something.

She also told me that queers would cut my dingy off in the mens room at the Citgo. So since then I never take my boat to the restroom with me.

5. Emeril made some popcorn on a recent show and put
walnuts and crumbled Roquefort (Blue) cheese in it. It sounded awful to me but then, I've never tried it!

8. yech that sounds awful to me too.
I am pretty much a purist - butter and salt OR real butter carmel corn. No nuts.

I have accidentally put black pepper on buttered popcorn and that isn't too bad. I can eat cheese corn but really, just butter and salt is the best. Definitely one of my favorite snacks.

15. I see no reason why you should try to turn this into a sex thread.
Sticky popcorn balls, indeed!

12. Yes
Salted popcorn and chocolate go very well together. I like it even better with a real sweet peanut butter flavor, like Butterfinger Bits. :)
