It was fun changing up our usual popcorn. I enjoyed the heat and the slight sweetness. I was the only one in my family who would eat it, though! I guess I'm the brave one. ;) Thanks for a fun take on popcorn.

Little, this was some great popcorn. I like to 'mix it up' sometimes, and this snack is just different enough. I followed the recipe as written, using wasabi powder, and we really liked it (including my 6 y.o. DS.) It was kinda like wasabi kettle corn. YUM! I will most certainly keep this in mind when we are looking to spice up the ordinary! Thanks for sharing, littlemafia!

Loved the heat. I have to admit, I left out the sugar....just couldn't imagine it in the mix. Sorry for not staying true to the recipe. I also added some cracked black peppercorns. Yummy!
