Sugar N Spice Popcorn

Our family can't get enough of this light, cinnamon-sweet popcorn. The baked kernels are wonderfully crunchy and coated just right. Try mixing some to have on hand as an anytime nibble.

    At first I thought there wouldn't be enough cinnamon/sugar mixture to coat the popcorn, but it turns out so good the way it is; I think it would be over-kill if there was more seasoning.

    This popcorn is yummy (& addicting!)! I took it to my 9 yo daughter's softball game & it was a hit with the kids & parents alike. Several of the mother's asked how it was made. Good stuff!

    wow i loved this popcorn. The flavors are so good and it was very easy to make. It has crunchy spots and chewy spots. I could taste little salty spots and sweet spots and the cinnamon adds a very good kick. wow i cant wait to make this again. and i did my own calorie count and my count came out as half that per cup
