    Tasted fine, but was a little too spicy for us. I drizzled, tossed, and such for the sauce, but it was soggy and the popcorn shrunk to a third its original volume. I popped another 2 quarts of popcorn and mixed it in with the soggy stuff. It helped, but didn't save the recipe. We will stick to simply butter and salt.

    The flavor of this is great, but the popcorn gets soggy and loses its crunch. May try this again, but use Chex cereal instead of popcorn.

    Awful. The butter sauce just made the popcorn soggy and shrivel up. I tried to save it by throwing it in the over (like you would w/ a Chex mix) - no help at all.
