Popcorn is such a comforting snack. It is all warm and crunchy and buttery. Sometimes there is just nothing better, and usually when you have a craving for it you do not want to wait. These are the times when microwave popcorn comes in very handy. You just grab a bag, toss it in the microwave and zap it for a minute or two. Voila! You have hot, buttery comfort at your fingertips.
The downside here is that microwave popcorn has a lot of bad stuff in it. Some varieties are worse than others, but there are all kinds of potential dangers such as fat, chemicals and colorings. Just take a look at the ingredients list or the nutritional information on the box (by the way, it is usually shown in per cup servings and who eats just a cup of this stuff?). Plus, we all know that real butter is not neon yellow.
