Microwave Popcorn Starter Kit

Ever wonder what exactly is in a microwave popcorn bag? Think it is healthy for you? Probably not. With the traditional microwave popcorn bags, many microwave bags are manufactured with aluminized metallic coatings inside to attract energy so that the popcorn cooks faster. These metallic coatings can heat up to over 500ยบ Fahrenheit. At these higher temperatures, the plasticized, greaseproof microwave bag liner can vaporize and become part of what you eat. YUCK! No chance of that happening with our PowerPop Microwave Popper. All you get is the pure natural popcorn you put in and it comes out a crispy, crunchy, tasty snack for the whole family. The PowerPop pops with oil for a buttery flavor or without oil for a lighter snack. Concentrates microwaves so virtually ever kernel pops. This is definitely the best way to do microwave popcorn.

Here is our starter kit for the microwave popcorn lovers. This popper allows you to pop natural gourmet popcorn, quick and easy. It is a healthier option than the microwave popcorn bags that are on the market today, yet it is easier than the stove top poppers. Your starter kit includes the following:

1 - PowerPop Microwave Popcorn Popper
1 - package Replacement Concentrator Cups
1 - 2 lb. bag Yellow Lady Finger Popcorn
1 - 16 oz. bottle Canola Oil
1 - 4.5 oz. Butter Flavor Popcorn Salt

Black Jewell Limited Supply

Note: Due to a miscalculation by the grower and supplier, our Black Jewel popcorn is now in limited supply. They have told us they are currently out of stock and will not have anything more available to us until harvest time this fall. Once our current limited supply has been sold, the Black Jewel popcorn will be temporarily out of stock until later this fall of 2006. If you are interested in finding a replacement item until the Black Jewel once again becomes available, we recommend that you try the Yellow Lady Finger Popcorn, Multi-Color Lady Finger Popcorn or the Baby White Popcorn. All three (3) varieties are a very small, tender kernel that we are sure you will enjoy just as much, if not more than the Black Jewel Popcorn. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but hope you will try one of our other varieties until our supplier harvests their new crop this fall.
