Man I love this thread. I popped two 8 oz. bags last Friday. Friday is our kids movie night. We ordered Thai food and stuffed our faces then popped the popcorn and sat down to watch. Despite being full, we ate all the popcorn. 3 adults, and 2 kids under 5 with 16oz of popped corn in our bellies! Delicious!
I have a weird question about the pre-packs. I find I'm having difficulty squeezing the oil into the kettle. The oil mixture isn't really a liquid, it kind of comes out like soft frozen orange juice. I just find it awkward squeezing it out of the package into the kettle as there isn't a lot of room to move inside.
Do you guys heat up the oil mix a little in the microwave so it just pours out? Right now, I'm squeezing it onto a plate and then using a spatula to put it in the kettle.
