I'm not sure how they choose between like recipes. I could be that this recipe may have gotten the test kitchen's attention when I submitted it for the children's cookbook.

Stephanie Morris ... This is a softer popcorn cake. It isn't hard like a popcorn ball would be. Enjoy!

Laurie Altieri ... 16 cups = 1 gallon. I use my huge 8 cup (or two quart) measuring cup and fill it up twice.
