Perk up your microwave popcorn by sprinkling it with these fun flavored mixes. Most the mixes make enough for serveral bags; you can store the extra. Note: The butter is not listed in the recipe but Zaar would not allow one ingredient. I found this recipe in Ladies' Home Journal. I have not tried these recipe, but I'm posting them for safe keeping.

I am rating this recipe w/o stars, as I haven't tried all the mixes. I have however, tried the Sweet Chili Mix and the Barbecue Mix, (minus the parsley flakes) and really enjoyed both of these. I look forward to trying the other mixes one of these days, and will edit my review to let you know what I thought of the other mixes. I had made the barbecue mix twice so far, once using the microwavable popcorn, and once using my hot air popper, and adding butter to both. Both tasted good!
