    What about Bunny Pop popcorn? It had a picture of Bugs Bunny on it. It was the kind they always had in the supermarkets here in NY, and I can’t find it anymore. Does it still exist?

    My favorite popcorn ever was “Merry Poppins.” It had a little bag of powdery flavoring in it that was tasty, and it had instructions in it that taught me a new, very effective way to pop corn. Put it on the burner until one kernel pops, pull it off for 60 seconds, then put it back on. It seemed to make the popcorn crispier.
