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!"

"I found the taste rather bland. My DH, who normally loves recipes like this, was unimpressed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2010

"I was not impressed with this. The only thing I changed was to use french vanilla because it's what I had on hand. I can't imagine that made much of a difference. I don't think it has much flavor. On our way to a dessert picnic so I suppose I'll see how it goes with the crowd."

"I have made this several times now and absolutely love it! I wouldn't change a thing!"
