I have always been a popcorn lover, have the fondest memories of going to local fairs and festivals and always heading straight to where the popcorn vendors were.Always buy the largest popcorn when I go to the movies too. Popcorn is my very favorite snack. You just never could get air popped popcorn that tasted like it die at the movies and local fairs. When I came across one of these I just had to have it. I will never regret buying it. We as a family love ours and get so much use out of it. We have family popcorn and movie nights and prefer this to microwaved popcorn anyday! Only real downside is it takes up quite a bit of countertop space, but it is so adorably designed that it has a permanent space on my countertop and am thinking of making a popcorn station to cater to the design cuteness even more.
