Oh, That Delicious Circle of Popcorn

POST #    1467

Holidays are great in the office because you're bound to get one of these round popcorn things. They are so tasty, so unhealthy, so perfect for the office. The only problem is that by the bottom of the can, the popcorn is usually really stale. Of the three flavors above - carmel, cheddar cheese, and butter - I'm not sure which I like the most. They all have their merits.

What I'm wondering is why our vendor didn't spring for some of the other flavors that were available. Maybe a little more expensive, but check out some of those flavors!! Okay, half of them look really disgusting (like all the ones from the candied section), but check out those supreme and nutty flavors. Yum!

Which flavors would you go for? Such decisions.

I had watermelon flavored one time from a place in Northampton, Mass...odd, yet compelling

I remember that place in Noho. Is it still there? I had a feeling it would go under quickly.

I can never make up my mind between the plain, cheese, or caramel in those tins so I eat all of 'em. "Dale and Thomas" popcorn in Times Sq. and on the UWS has delicious caramel chocolate popcorn.

We just got one of those here in our dept. about 2 hours ago. Fancy 4-flavor can, yet still the old stand-bys: plain, buttered, cheese and caramel. Where's the jalapeno? Where's the Chicago-style? This is Chicago, afterall...

ugh ... I think i might be the only one who hates those tins to death. I get them every year. They just sit in my closet until someone besides me eats them...
