Good, my kid has a milk allergy, and eats a lot of popcorn.

On the other hand, I would have been pretty pissed to get cheese popcorn in my bag of kettle corn anyway!

But anything that "cutes" an allergy risk is a good thing.

Popcorn sucks.
If I'm eating it I  don't like the way it gets up in my grill, sometimes little bits will quite literally spike into my gums.
If someone else is eating it, particularly at a movie, I just don't get along with the smell. It's like a variation on ass-smell, a cloying warm buttery ass-smell.
I realize it's a massive deal for theaters, the mark-up is amazing for them, but can't they sell nice things too like oranges or apples? Oh and maybe put all the popcorn addicts in another room, like maybe the dumpster out back? They'd never notice, they're terminally dumb for eating that crap anyway.

That's why your popcorn should have one ingredient: popcorn.

A bag of stale popcorn for $3.50 is a symptom of mental retardation.

Microwave popcorn causes lung cancer, right?
Has that changed or not recently? I don't eat that stuff so ...

stuhayes2010: That's why your popcorn should have one ingredient: popcorn.


My recipe:

quarter cup popcorn

brown paper lunch sack

1:30 in the microwave.

That's it.  If you want to go nuts, once the popcorn is done, melt a little butter and drizzle it over it.

cutes?

Maybe they meant cooties?

The worst is having one of the hulls stuck to the back of your tongue.

Destroy it? That seems a tad unnecesary. Why not just advise everyone to write "mystery flavor. may contain milk." on the bags with a sharpie. Problem solved. Alternatively, mail me a few tons of free popcorn for "destruction".

Stop liking what I don't like!

For those of you complaining about popcorn hulls, switch to white popcorn, the hulls aren't nearly as bad.

also, microwave popcorn sucks and it isn't any faster than this

I hope they were typing this article quickly on their phone, and later will get back to their desk and edit it to "ConAgra recalls popcorn, cites allergy risk".  That would be more Englishesque.
