This is the best popcorn I have ever bought, outdoes Orville Redenbacker's popcorn in size and taste. It is also the cheapest at approx. $1.20/lb. It pops up really well in the microwave (avoid all plastic microwave containers). I use a 3 qt glass bowl with a glass plate on top as a lid. It fits loosely enough so that when I overfill it with popcorn, the popcorn can lift up the lid easily and let excess gas escape. Most popcorn is pressure-sensitive so that if there is too much popcorn in a bowl to pop, some kernels will not pop. Almost every kernel pops when I microwave on high in a 1500 watt microwave oven for about 5 1/2 min (about 1 1/2 TBLSP popcorn) and no added oil. In fact when I popped about 8 bowls of the popcorn (had to cool off bowl each time to avoid overheating the microwave and burning popped pieces), I found about 5 unpopped kernels in the bottom of the large paper bag.

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.

I regularly pop corn in a wok with canola oil. Nothing fancy, pops like a charm. My local supermarket chain (VONS) used to sell those old plastic bags of corn for like $2. You know -- those old fashioned bags that just sit there while everyone else buys all the microwave garbage.

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've tried many brands of popcorn, and this one is the best, bar none. Fluffy, tender, and flavorful. It is far better than all the name brands. You won't waste your money on Orville after you've tried this!

I ordered the bulk 12.5 lb bag of Paragon popcorn on August 12, 2011, thinking that it was reasonable priced and would go well with the microwave popper and the air popper I was also ordering from Amazon. Some Reviewers had noted that what they had received was stale; they were right, the popcorn tasted alfully funny and barely popped in the microwave popper, at least a third of what I had cooked were unpopped duds. In the air popper, I did get better results, but still had a lot of partially popped kernels (aka, "tooth breakers" as I had to be extreemly careful at the bottom of the bowl).

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.

The box said it came from Paragon in Mo. , but the plastic bag ( not a brown paper bag as shown) said Dynamite Popcorn. I called Paragon up directly and got a recorded message, so I left them a message about it & asked them to call me. Meanwhile I made some in my Whirley Popper and it tasted great, very fluffy, almost none were unpopped. Much better then the stuff I bought in the store. Right now I'm a bit confused but my stomach is happy though.
