I love all types of popcorn. I gave an old popcorn recipe a makeover. I make a lot of different styles of popcorn. I find that yellow corn works the best. The Result was a crisp and tender sweet popcorn. This popcorn is not chewy at all. You'll be pleasantly surprised. It tastes like a cross between butter toffee popcorn and Caramel corn. It is addicting. It is also so much better than your regular old caramel corn.,
