MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2012

I used a generous "dash" of coarse sea salt and thought this tasted really good. I almost didn't make it because of the previous review that said that it sticks to your teeth a lot. It does some, but not nearly as much as another popcorn recipe I have made from this site. Will definitely make again!

This was good but sticks to your teeth alot. I worry about the kids teeth with this snack.
