  1. 6 tbsp butter + 2 tbsp oil = 8 tbsp of fat!!!!…..can you say “heart attack”!

    air pop the popcorn & ditch the cardiovascular disease & diabetes!
    …or use 2 tbsp grape seed oil only!

    I don’t advise using salt either…try a salt substitute instead.

  2. Thanks so much for your comment and good advise KG. I really should have included some more low fat and no sodium tips with this recipe. I did mention substituting 2 tbsp grapeseed oil for the butter as I do this all the time and hubby doesn’t know the difference.

    For some salt free seasonings try Watkins All Purpose Seasoning, Italian Seasoning or Pizza Seasoning. Of coarse any of our herbs and spices are salt free as well so you can go wild with them.

  3. I use to sell Watkins and just ran out of the
    01994 Imitation Cheese Salt.

    Do you or do you know anyone that might have some?
    I’d be willing to buy up to 10 bottles
