    Wow...this popcorn has some bite to it. Just perfect for the DH and DS's who like a bit of nip to most foods. I myself am more of a sweet person and so I have to go sparingly. I like the fact of the Light part of it. I used Orville Redenbacher's SmartPop-94% FF butter. So, that probably makes it Lighter yet...Thanks Celine~ Made for PhotoForum 08'~

    This is great! I made this at work with microwave popcorn. So I omitted the salt. The maple syrup and red pepper balance each other out. I used a toaster oven to cook it so it took a bit longer.
