To get movie theatre style popcorn, you must pop in hot coconut oil with this mixed in. Then use a buttery topping and sprinkle a little more of this one top. That's literally the 'recipe" & it is delicious.
Coconut oil is ideal, but sometimes I use canola oil, because it's cheaper and I have it on hand.
Another cheat I use is turning this into "microwave" popcorn... since I don't want to clean a stove top popper. Mix your oil and flavorings in a small bowl, stir in unpopped kernels around a couple tablespoons. Place a brown paper lunch sack on a plate and dump in the kernel mixture. Roll the top over on itself a bit. Microwave on the plate. Obviously times will vary, but mine takes about 90 seconds. Viola.
It seems a little pricey by the time you pay for shipping, but bear in mind each of these containers has 992 servings in it. Imagine a milk carton full of salt--- that's more or less what this is. One of these will last a long time, but I will order this again, it's tasty stuff!
Here is my recommendation:
3 tablespoons of Paragon Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon of Gold Medal Flavacol (more or less depending on how salty you like it)
1/2 cup of Paragon Yellow Popcorn (sold in 12.5lb and 50lb bags)
Cook in a stirring popcorn popper. I use the good ol' Original West Bend Stir Crazy. Don't get the Stir Crazy Deluxe or the Presto/Orville poppers. They are terrible. Just read the reveiws on Amazon.
As soon as kernal popping is down to 1 pop a second, cap the bowl and flip it. Don't get concerned if there are a few more unpopped kernals than normal. It's popcorn. It's pretty cheap. If you leave it too long the heat and steam will turn the popcorn stale tasting or soggy.
After cooking, top with Gold Medal's Supur-Kist II. Don't use real butter as it is 15% water and will make your popcorn sogggy. Honestly the topping doesn't have a lot of flavor. It is more for texture but does make a difference.
I don't think I can taste the difference between this and what I get at the theaters.
On a side note, reviews here are for the Original Flavacol Seasoning (2045) but I use the BB or Better Buttery version, product number 2019.
I spent about $56 including shipping for the Paragon popcorn, Flavacol, Paragon Coconut Oil and the Gold Medal Supur-Kist II. The box was very heavy when delivered so I can't complain about the shipping cost. Picked up the Stir Crazy on sale for $20 (local Farm & Fleet).Read more ›
-Taste: The taste of this is superior to any others I have tried. It made my popcorn taste very similar to movie theater popcorn. In fact, the product is obviously manufactured for commercial use since on the carton it says "for better popcorn profits..." and lists some hints on how to make more off selling popcorn. I've tried many other popcorn seasonings, my 2nd favorite is Jolly Time Buttery Seasoning. I've also tried Jonny's popcorn salt and Kernel Season's Popcorn seasoning, both of which I don't care for at all. This is far superior in the taste department!
-Price: There's no way you can beat the price. I paid $5.88 (I see the price is a little higher right now, but still reasonable). It comes in a 2 pound (or 35oz) carton. My other seasonings I paid $3-6 for and their size ranges from 2.85-6oz. This is definitely the most bang for your buck.
-Extremely high sodium content: I was very annoyed when I wanted to buy this and tried to find nutrition facts and an ingredients list. It kind of raised a red flag for me when in the description it said "The "secret" ingredient movie theaters don't want you to know". That sounds unhealthy. I looked on Amazon, Googled it and tried to find it on their website with no success. I was happy when the product came to find out all the info I was looking for. I'll list the nutrition facts here for anyone who wants to know:
Serving size: 1 tsp (7g)

Pros: Taste Is Amazing... Each Carton Could Easily Make Over 100 Batches Of Popcorn.
Cons: Color Is Yellow.

- Gold Medal Prod. 2045 Flavacol Seasoning Popcorn Salt (Buy 2)
- Paragon Bulk Bag Yellow Corn (12.5-Pounds)
- Butter Flavored Popcorn Topping by Wabash Valley Farms (Yellow Gallon)
