Styrofoam Popcorn

I like popcorn. A lot. I eat popcorn. Usually, a lot of it. And one thing never fails, whether it’s hot air popcorn or microwave popcorn, I always get at least one of the dreaded “styrofoam kernels.” These kernels of popcorn are so distantly removed from the delicious treat that I’m used to, I usually find myself wondering if I accidentally picked up a bag of packing peanuts by accident. I don’t know what causes these anomalies of popped corn, but once that foul-tasting kernel enters my mouth, I’m ready to swear off popcorn forever. Until the next day, at least.

i really like the popcorn that comes in like a tub… that you cook in the microwave? it comes out perfect every time… a few duds, but it’s perfectly buttery and not too salty. i don’t know the brand i got, but i got it from movie gallery, ha.

What is this then?
