    The following ideas are sanctioned by the American Society for the Devouring of Popcorn. The ASDP suggests three servings of Uber-Popcorn a week minimum.


    1. Melted Butter (not margarine!). A favorite, but go light or you’ll have a face full of grease.
    2. Parmesan Cheese (grated or shredded). The powdery stuff on its own is awesome.
    3. Italian Herbs. Use some quality olive oil and sprinkle it lightly before shaking to mix.
    4. Lemon and Black Pepper Seasoning. See above.
    5. Garlic and Black Pepper Seasoning. See above.
    6. Chili Powder. By itself for a zing.
    7. Powdered Sugar. With some melted butter for a sinfully yummy delight.
    8. Cinnamon and Sugar. Same as above, just much better!
    9. Dried Cheese powder from the Macaroni and Cheese box. You’ve probably done it before, but its a lot cheaper than the stuff they sell as popcorn cheese!
