    Great idea! I love sweet and salty popcorn. Voted! When you have the chance, check out my new post here, 'Veganism is the Future', says Bill Gates. It's not what it sounds like...

    Wow! this looks amazing, especially for the sweet salty taste I think we all like. I pop my own corn anyway, so I will try this for sure! I voted! Please check out my post on chickpeas, and vote if you like it. Thanks again for the recipe!
