I sure wish that they would Stop using this toxic stuff in the movie complexes. Do you see the people serving you your popcorn wearing gas masks?? Why is it even on the market??

Whenever you see "flavor/flavored" you know it's some chemical that is guaranteed to be at least unhealthy if not downright harmful. Thanks Nancy.

Not too mention palm oil is in most of these snack foods as well, just another reason to avoid them! Thanks for posting Nancy.

Okay, butter flavor is garbage. Got it.

Now hand me that stick of real butter for my popcorn and pancakes!

Eat naturally and make your own if you can - and buy organic - it seems the only way to avoid being poisoned!!

It turns out that the low fat (and high sugar) diets we have been recommended to eat over the last thirty years is as bad for us as it can be - see for info - we should have fats in our diets and NO sugar (I am working on the latter bit.... slowly[!]).

Love popcorn and corn products in general, but because of the GMO labeling policy I boycot all corn products. Now hearing about the toxic artificial "butter" I feel I made a good move.

We don't have much that is real food anymore in the grocery stores. Most of it is crap. No wonder so many are sick and getting cancer. I gave up the microwave popcorn a long time ago, thankfully I have, as I keep reading all the reason not to eat it.

Although this is a site which wants to sell you alternative foods/supplements, this information and suggestions have good basis.

As the huge baby boom populations (this includes Africa, Asia, the Americans, and Europe) are now into ages where dementia are common, some strong correlations are being found between manufactured chemicals, in foods, in emissions, in all kinds of products from pesticides to perfumes and cleaning compounds, and dementias, cancers, cardiovascular problems, and even in variations from basic metabolic processes.

Urbanization (80% to 85% of the world's human population now) is a cage. However that large population would ravage what remains of the natural earth should it be dissipated more evenly outside that cage.

Popcorn is one of the few snacks my diabetic husband can comfortably enjoy and we have learned to use a little real butter with herbs.

Who needs this junk. It's not hard to melt your own butter or not.

Popcorn on the stove~ no microwave, cooked with bacon grease! I'm not saying it's healthy, but healthier than butter flavored chemical. I AM saying that it's tasty!

Definitely time to boycott everything that you don't recognise as totally natural (btw the deadly chemical 'aspartame' has now been renamed 'Natural Sweetener' - because too many people are avoiding it! There are increasingly less reasons for refusing to believe they are deliberately trying to poison us.

I supposew they dont use real butter because of the cost so use toxic rubbish instead
