PopCorn

Why does popcorn taste yucky when made in a popcorn maker? But way better when you use the microwave? And even better from the cinema?

We found a popcorn maker inthe loft, tried it and the popcorn tastes like cardboard!!

    Um, I have never had popcorn from a popcorn maker before. I have popped popcorn on a hob before and that was definitely the yummiest as I could decide how much salt to put on it instead of there being a stupid amount.

    A home popcorn maker is like a, upsidedown hairdryer, using hot air to pop the corns, but it also means you can't add salt or any oil whilst cooking, so maybe that is it.

    It tastes alright from our popcorn maker.

    Everything tastes horrible from a microwave though... kinda metallic.

    How can you say popcorn is horrible, and yet like toffee? Toffee makes up like 1/3 of the known flavours.
    I say 'know' because I see popcorn flavours like the periodic table I recon theres a few more that just havent been discovered yet.
