"Didn't turn out like picture. It's basically like rice Krispy treats except its popcorn. Didn't have any flavor, just tasted like liquid powdered sugar. Bland."

"I love this recipe for a sugar popcorn snack!

It is so easy and delicious. I make it for our girls weekends and it always gets gobbled up."
