  1. Thanks for your exhaustive report on popcorn. I was really sad to hear that it was not nutritious as has been stated.

    I love popcorn and bought an inexpensive bag from Walmart. The first few times were fantabulous. Light, fluffy, not chewy.

    I had stored it in the fridge, and yesterday, it was awful — chewy.

    I use the hot air cannister by P??? — an old American name.

    Anyhoo, I bought Orville R.- yellow — from Walmart today and was truly disappointed. It too was chewy. Fluffy but chewy. Returning it tomorrow. During past years, I was buying the bagged microwave type and it was never ever chewy. But my microwave broke down and I don’t really use it that much.

    Orville yellow is “gluten free.”

    R U certain there is not nutritional value? How sad.

    What is the best healthy munchie between meals that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’m a young senior citizen, past 80 years!

    Thanks again, and would love to get ur feedback.

    I’m in Mtn View — Stanford — Palo Alto area, California.

    I air pop it and it does come out fluffy but its chewy. Yuk.
