I recently got gluttened and am trying to id the source. One possibility is from popcorn served at a local saloon (I live in Nevada) where my wife and I go to enjoy western music. They add a yellowish something to the corn before popping it, and I tried finding out what was in that, but the person who does the popping doesn't know and the yellowish something is not in its original container. I assumed it was salt and butter flavoring much like the movies use. Has anyone had a problem with commerical popcorn like this?

Thanks.

It can vary. You need to get ahold of the packaging and find out.

The flavoring could have had gluten in it, so it is possible that it was the popcorn that made you sick. Also, if they were serving "gluten" foods, than you could have got cross-contamination.
