    This is an easy recipe to prepare, and the flavor on peanut butter and honey is a favorite. I too had the experience of previous reviews with the popcorn being chewy. I'll admit that I did not boil the mixture for 5 minutes, so will try again.

    Love making this for family movie night. A tip is to spray the waxed paper so the popcorn comes off easier. One viewer said it was chewy. Mine was not. The trick is to boil the mixture for 5 minutes.

    I like the way you can taste the honey and PB in this popcorn. I'll be making it again!

    This is definitely a very easy recipe, and the kids enjoyed it. But, it was very, very chewy. Almost like taffy. That's not bad if you like chewy, but that's not my thing. I don't have any interest in taffy either. :-)

    I think the recipe is easy to follow but personally I don't like chewy popcorn. The flavor is good though and my kids like it.
