I cooked my own popcorn instead of using microwave popcorn and used grapeseed oil to be healthier. I also added some other herbs and spices such as rubbed rosemary and paprika. It was absolutely delicious and I enjoyed it much more than regular butter and salt popcorn!

Try a sprinkle of stevia extract on corn before placing in microwave and get sweet popcorn without the calories of sugar, taste fab too!
