We don't eat a lot of snacks, but one of our favorites is hot air popped popcorn, topped with about 3 Tb. real butter and a few turns of the sea salt shaker. Now I don't even like microwave popcorn. There's just something about home-popped that is so much more satisfying! My husband gave me a popper like this one about three years ago and it has been in regular use ever since. In addition to being much healthier than microwave or prepackaged popcorn, it's also more economical: I can find it for less than $2 per 32 oz package at my local grocery store, which makes a lot of large bowls full (I only have to buy it about every two months and we generally eat it once a week or so). And unlike with the microwave variety, very few kernels are left unpopped and none are burned.
