This popcorn outdoes all of the microwavable popcorn brands that you will see in the grocery stores since you are not popping them in teflon/PfoA lined paper bags which will leach out dangerous chemicals (PfoA) into your popcorn with the heat necessary to pop the corn. If you try to use a lower heat on your microwave you will get progressively more unpopped kernels. Microwave is better than the hot air corn-poppers since it doesn't cool down kernels in between the pulses of hot air that corn poppers do. I watch the timer as it counts down and start to note when I hear a pop as the popping slows down. When I do not hear a pop for 12 sec, it is time to pull the bowl out of the hot microwave. Thus the time to pop a bowl of popcorn will vary from 5.3-5.7 min when starting with a cold bowl and lid.
Well VONS slowly marked up these bags to about $3 over the years. Then one day they were all GONE. Replaced with Orville Reddenschmucker like 'jugs' of unpopped corn. Just under two pounds of corn for --- WAIT FOR IT -- $5.
I have to pay MORE money and get more container but LESS corn?!? I don't THINK so...
So I start surfing the web. My God -- some site was willing to sell me a 50 pound bag for like $18. My cheapness grinned ear to ear. Then I saw the shipping charge --- WAIT FOR IT -- $43. Yeah... no...
So then I see this brand at Amazon. 12.5 pounds for $17. Shipping? FREE. And I don't have to store 50 pounds!
Just over a dollar a pound instead of twice as much? SOLD.
Now it's home. Just made a batch. I'm not a gourmet -- it's frickin' popcorn, okay? To me, it's either a pass or a fail. Better than Von's, the same, or unacceptable. It's either better or the same as Von's -- I can't tell. It seemed to pop bigger, but I'm not sure the bigger popping translates to better taste.
Why are you still reading this? Just order it already.
I was going to try making a batch tonight, I noticed a dark kernel in the mix; it had mold on it. Some of the other kernels look suspecious, too; my overall impression of the cooked corn, and the weathered plastic bag the entire 12.5 lb batch came in, is that it's completly stale and too old to use.
I expect 12.5 lb bags of corn are not selling that fast, and are getting stale in the warehouse. Anyone who wants a decent bag of popping corn would be better off just picking-up a bag at the grocery store; at least those bags are freshness-labeled with a date, this Paragon corn was complely undated and no telling how old it was. Terrible!!
**UPDATE** 11-OCT-2011 - I tossed all the stale Paragon corn last week in the trash, decided it wasn't worth dealing with if it was moldy, stale, and wouldn't completly pop. Last weekend, I tried a new *freshness dated* bag of Kroger yellow popping corn in my new air popper; that did perfect, there were about 5 unpopped kernels remaining (compared to the over two dozen unpopped kernnels from the Paragon corn). No more unsealed food products from Amazon for me after this experience.

Good tasting popcorn for cheap. Just make sure you have a way to store it since the packaging is non resealable. Yes, I would recommend it and will buy it againPublished 8 days ago by RH
My children LOVE popcorn! I make it for their after-school snack almost daily. We use a microwave air-pop bowl and eat it plain, not salt, not butter. Read morePublished 16 days ago by KLH

Pops well, good corn, few unpopped. We prefer to pop in mix of canola/olive oil in a pot rather than air pop or pop in microwave. Only difference we've noted with this v. Read morePublished 1 month ago by RagsToRags
