So, why do we like the Whirley Pop so much? Isn’t microwave popcorn faster? Actually, a batch of Whirley popcorn takes about 3 minutes on our gas stove, so, microwave popcorn isn’t faster. Plus, with the recent health concerns over the ingredients in microwave popcorn, we feel much better adding our own oil and popcorn kernels and knowing that is all we are eating. And, as flavor goes, there really is no comparison. I think microwave popcorn is usually too salty and too oily. Popcorn from the Whirley Pop comes out light and fluffy. Just salt and butter to taste and you are ready to go.

I finished my walk down Main headed for 2nd Street. As I passed the food vendors, the aromas were pleasant as I listened to a local Christian group sing in harmony across the street. Aroma + Harmony + Indulgence = Pleasure…or something like that. The sound of meats frying on the grill, Kettle Corn Concession popping in a massive cauldron, people shouting out orders and change being quickly returned; people conversing about the serious and the more common. It would have certainly caused even Anthony Bourdain to take pause… simultaneously eliciting that automatic childish smile and bringing that all too familiar sparkle to his eye. I made the u-turn onto 2nd and started looking for friends and former family members. I ran into several, and to some was simply able to wave and wish them well.

Purchased kernels can be popped in a popper or on top of the stove. They can also be popped over a fire in a pan or a special popper. Hot air poppers do not use any oil. These often have a cup or container for butter. The butter is put in the container to melt while the machine is popping. Other poppers require some type of oil. Popping on the stove in a pan also requires using some type of oil. Special popcorn oil, olive oil or vegetable oil can be used.
There are four different varieties of Natural popcorn from Orville Redenbacher: Simply Salted, Salt, Cracked Pepper, Buttery Garlic and Simply Salted with 50% Less Fat. These flavors are in addition to the organic and specialty lines. I don’t regret buying the Simply Salted version but the price of it is something that will keep me from buying it in the future .. but if it’s on sale, you can bet I’ll stock up on it!
