    Healthy, but a word of caution. Always watch carefully when you try this as the paper bag can catch fire. Also, never pop corn in plastic bags or plastic containers. The kernels get too hot and will melt the plastic. A better idea is to get a microwave popcorn popper, available under $10. - 9/14/09

    I finally tried this and now have everyone in the family trying it. Just like air-popped! I love the lack of sodium. I pre-spray the kernels with a tiny bit a PAM - it makes all of them pop, no old maids. - 9/29/09

    I love this idea, I didn't know you can make your own popcor in a bag in the microwave, I am never going to buy the microwave popcorn again. Thank you - 6/23/09

    It tastes much better with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix the oil, salt, and popcorn together, throw into bag, and pop in microwave until 2 or more seconds pass between "pops". Delicious snack. - 7/11/10

    Works well! No funky smell, no smoke...just plain, simple, unadorned popcorn, ready for the additions of your choice! - 6/24/09
