  • Incredible!

    It is very good! Why do you need to bake it an hour? I didn't bake it all, I just put it in microwave for 45 seconds and shook it up in a huge Tupperware bowl (that's a bowl). It was crunchy and very yummy! - 11/6/12

    This is very good and will make it again. I don't think I'll be able to eat store-bought caramel corn again. - 10/29/08
