Black Jewell Microwave Popcorn

I'm not really big on microwave popcorn. For me, the best popcorn still comes out of a pan on the stovetop, shaken over the fire until the lid of the pot lifts off from the volume of the fluffy, steamy popped kernels.

Occasionally, however, a microwave popcorn comes out that is pretty decent. Black Jewell Premium Microwave Popcorn is one of them. The actual kernels in the bag are very small, with inky-black hulls; they pop up fairly fluffy and as starkly white as anything you've ever seen. They're not a perfect substitute for traditional popcorn - the kernels are still tougher than kettle-popped - but they're pretty good.
