OK, enough's enough.
Uncle Mikey, the Bloomberg of New York City who bought his super-sized mayoral term with only $100+ million of his own money, has been working to keep the rudest Americans healthier and alive longer. Gee, thanks.
Ban smoking in public? OK, that makes sense; protects others. Ban transfats? OK, if you say so. Menus with more tiny-type caloric disclaimers than prescription drugs. Salty foods? Uh? Large sugared drinks, but only in some places? Really? So, you buy two containers or go across the street. Texting while walking? Wait! What?
Now, popcorn. POPCORN!!??
And what about milkshakes? They taste good too.
Let's just wait one corn-picking minute on this. If you want to munch arugula, go right ahead. No one's stopping you, although Lord knows what went into the soil it grew in.
But popcorn. POPCORN!? It's one of the 10 best foods ever. (And the nine others are likely chocolate-related.)
Unlike Elizabeth Warren, popcorn is 32/32ds Native American. They invented the stuff. The real reason for the Louisiana Purchase. (Just kidding. The real reason was Montana.)

Screw Bloomturd, Just another control freak with way too much money and just a tiny amount of brains.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I recently bought a 24-pack of Orville Redenbacher’s Extra Butter popcorn, and was extremely disappointed: tasted like dry cotton. So, I tried again and bought a 24-pack of Orville Redenbacher’s Extra Butter popcorn again, and again, it tastes like dry cotton.
“Extra Butter” Where? Same thing with movie popcorn. You gotta’ pay that ridiculous price and then get dry crummy popcorn instead of that natural butter flavor.
Have the fat ass Mooch-elle people destroyed the popcorn industry too?
If someone’s willing to fork out $10 for 50 cents worth of popcorn they may have more issues than obesity to deal with.
It tastes like shit because the government disavowed coconut oil which contains lauric acid, a necessary life ingredient, then the let Monsanto rip through the seed industry with genetically modified corn seed, injected with genetically modified pesticides... what is the end result of ingesting that crap?
Nobody bothered to find out!
Bloomberg sucks, he’s anti freedom, period.
However the whole “real food v. supermarket gmo’s” is a whole ‘nother issue”
***it tastes like dry cotton.***
I just finished a batch of popcorn! Take a good brand, pour some cooking oil to cover the bottom of a large pot. Place enough popcorn to cover the bottom and turn on high.
When the “pops” start to stop cut off the heat.
In a glass measuring cup place one half of a stick of REAL BUTTER. Melt and pour over the popcorn, stir and add salt.
Yummy with a real coke!
I’ve been blessed to have gone to my last 2 movies in CANADA. Yes CANADA - and I don’t know what kind of wonderful chemical sludge they add to their popcorn, but it was heavenly. Seriously, CANADA
You can still buy popcorn popping oil with coconut oil through Amazon. In fact I am looking at some I bought that is distributed by Wabash Valley Farms and the first ingredient is “Refined Coconut oil”. And it does a great job with popcorn.
The other thing I’ve noticed is the brand of popcorn does seem to matter a lot as far as quality goes. So far the generic yellow popcorn from Walmart is just as good or better then Orville Redenbacher.
buy any crap from walmart,,, ya get what chinese shit you are getting.... not that i dislike walMart I just can’t go in there without breaking out in hives.
