"This recipe had me at peanut butter. Will make this again. I made it without pretzels because I didn't have any. The sweet and salty would be a good combo."

"This snack turned out really good. The taste reminds me of the Bit-O-Honey candy bars I enjoyed in the 70's. The recipe says pretzels and M&M's are optional. I preferred the popcorn without anything added, even though I did try it with M&M's."
