Something fun for the kids!

Top Review by sunny_day

The popcorn looked super so I can see why it is a kid pleaser. I found that the popcorn remained a bit on the soft side (or gooey?) despite the time spent in the oven. Maybe it is not suppose to be crunchy like carmel popcorn?? The taste was alright though. It's worth attempting again.
