The Best Popcorn

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, and one I can feel moderately good about eating (most of the time).

Hands down, I think this is the best popcorn maker out there:


The Whirley Pop stovetop popper is a pain to clean, but the delicious popcorn it churns out makes it well worth the effort. I make mine with a tiny (tiny!) amount of canola or olive oil (less than a tablespoon, just enough to coat the kernels), and I find that once it’s done, it doesn’t need anything other than a (modest) shake of salt.

You can make your own healthy popcorn in the microwave, too. It’s as easy as popping kernels in a plain brown paper bag. Find the instructions here.¬†This is so much better than the artificial butter stuff.

For a real treat, check out Quinn popcorn.


Their mission is simple: To clean up the food we eat, which is why you won’t find toxic anything in their products. And with¬†flavors like parmesan and rosemary or olive oil and herbs, it’s hard to choose what to make.
