I just love trying different popcorn recipes and am so glad I tried this. The flavors were wonderful. I loved the garlic infused butter taste. The only thing I would change is to cut down on the amount of butter. Made for ZWT8 France. Merci!

This flavor blend was excellent! I prepped a smaller amount of popcorn and cut back on the other ingredients accordingly. I would use a little less butter next time as a personal preference, but the garlic infusion was fantastic, and the other herbs were perfect. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

Good stuff for watching the Summer Games on TV. Following the lead of others, I used 2T oil and only about 1/3 C popcorn which is standard for the pot I use. I omitted celery salt as a personal preference. DH likes his 'corn a little less "fancy" but I thought is was a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8 by an Herbaceous Honey.
