Microwave your "own" popcorn UPDATE!

This giveaway is officially over.  1 winner will be chosen using  Good luck!
Do you love popcorn? Do you spend a ton of money of that fat free, low in Weight Watchers Points, microwave popcorn? Are you tired of only having 1 or 2 points left and having a 4 point bag of popcorn? Do you only eat half or do you accidently eat the entire bag? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this post is for YOU!

Microwave your own popcorn! Did you know that most popcorn corn is only 1 WW Point Plus per tablespoon? Did you know that you can pop your own popcorn in your own bag?  Here is how:

I have 2 points left so I am going to cook 2 tablespoons of popcorn.  I use Western Family brand yellow popcorn.  Overall Orville Rickenbacker is also 1 point, but Jolly Time is not, so be careful.

Pour desired amount in a brown paper lunch sack.  The maximum the bag will hold is 4 Tablespoons.

Lay the bag flat on the counter and fold the top down like this.

Grab some tape and tape the top of the bag closed.

Place the bag in your microwave and pop!  My microwave takes 2 min and 10 secs.  Listen to your popcorn.  When it stops popping for about 3 seconds in between pops, it is done.

Open up your bag and go to town with your seasoning.  My kids and husband put real butter on at this point, but this is what I do:

I use spray butter and popcorn seasoning.  My favorite is the white cheddar seasoning.  You can find popcorn seasonings next to the popcorn in any grocery store.

Once you are all popped, sprayed and seasoned, enjoy!

Do you want to win your OWN microwave popcorn kit?  Well here is your chance.  Enter to win a bag of popcorn, seasonings (no butter spray, it will spoil in the mail), paper bags and tape.  One lucky winner will be announced on Friday, June 3rd.

You can have multiple entries by doing the following:

1.  One entry for publicly following my blog.

2.  Another entry, for sharing this post/giveaway on your facebook page.

Complete the following form and don't forget to check back on Friday for the Winner!  Good Luck!

I pop popcorn at least 4-5 night a week and would love to have more control over the contents!
