This is so good! Perfect combo of sweet & salty and simple to make. I added almonds, next time I'll try it with pecans. Submitted by:

Only bad thing is trying to stop! I made this for the Superbowl. I used bags of popcorn so left out the salt and BS on purppose, and the vannila by accident...and I put in some sliced almonds. Who needs the Crunch and munch, this is much better! Submitted by:

I was surprised at the recipe size. To keep 18 servings is not practical for just one person but none the less , I id make it using canola oils and no salt. It was just like caramel corn. There is too much left but I will find a use for it. Submitted by:

I substituted agave nectar for the corn syrup and Splenda brown sugar (use half the amount of brown sugar). I also used light butter and coated 17 cups of popcorn. I don't know how good the original recipe should be but this was wonderful. Didn't taste like a light version at all! Submitted by:

Delicious - I used brown sugar splenda. And for those folks freaking out about corn syrup (such as Karo syrup) - that is NOT the same as high fructose corn syrup - those are two completely different things. Submitted by:

Not sure I would want to stop at such a small amount for a serving. Sugar is so addictive. It sounds delicious and I'll give it a try with half the salt, and a little more corn. Submitted by:

1. This is FAR from a "healthy food", and b.) If I made this, it wouldn't be calorie control, because I'd eat the whole batch. :-) Submitted by:

Ok, so this is no different than any other caramel popcorn recipe I've made. It's exactly the same! Making the serving 2/3 of a cup to get the calorie count down is bogus. Who eats 2/3 of a cup of popcorn, I ask?! Let's be honest...we eat it by the handful. Submitted by:

I assume the recipe calls for "1/4 cup of UNSALTED butter"?... Could be the reason why some find the Sauce too salty with The added 1/2 tsp. of salt?... Will be tryIng th recipe shortly! Submitted by:

This recipe has over 23 grams of sugar PER SERVING! SP doesn't seem to think sugar is bad. You seldom see it mentioned. A bit behind the current research. They should at least LABEL the grams of SUGAR in everything. Submitted by:

HI all....I understand your position on the sugars, carbs, etc...but why not create a makeover recipe of this instead of just being upset? That would be much more productive and would probably help someone else else at the same time ;) Submitted by:

I found it ironic to use air-popped popcorn and then to spread it with all that sugar. Sounds wonderful even if you use regular popcorn. Submitted by:

CORN Syrup? Are you serious? Maybe an alternative to this highly processed sugar source could be found in agave nectar but I'd still be cautious of using that if you're a diabetic. Submitted by:
