Microwave Popcorn

18 posts in this topic

I really need some help this time. My husband would love nothing more than to have some popcorn tonight. I bought some Cousin Willie's Movie Theater Butter Microwave Popcorn. Anyone know if microwave popcorn is okay? The ingredients are as follows: Popcorn, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, natural & aritifical flavors & beta carotene coloring. Thanks!

I've never heard of that brand of popcorn. Do you have the Delphi list? I found it to be very helpful. I printed the whole list and then stapled each section. I filed each section into one of those folding type file thingys. I labeled each section so its very convenient. If I want to look for popcorn I just pull out the "snack foods" and just pick something off the list. I checked the list for Cousin Willy's but its not on there so I don't know if its gluten-free or not.

Act II

Jolly Time

Orville Redenbacher All variteies gluten-free except the caramel pour-over popcorn & Ultimate Theatre Style w/ BBQ Flavour pouch

I'm sure there are more...I just got these from the list right now.

You know what is really good for popcorn and is not that hard to do?

There's a microwave popcorn popper by Presto. It is a plastic bowl with a conductive base. It was about $15 dollars and you have to buy these little paper things to go in the bottom to make the popcorn pop, but they are not expensive and you can re-use them so they last a long time. You use kernels of popcorn and put it in for 3 minutes and put your own butter and salt on it. It makes it so you can have as much butter that you want, but not too much. After I started using it I noticed that regular microwave popcorn feels like it has a film on it. And any ingredient that starts with "partially hydrogenated" is really bad for you.

Nothing beats air-popped popcorn! :-) Poppers are around $15 at Target.

We really like microwave popcorn. I would assume that since several of the major brands are gluten free that this brand is also but I guess I'll get some Act II & wait to hear from our brand.

I havn't seen a plain or just butter flavored popcorn that did contain gluten. I only do the microwave too. So easy and less clean up. I think it tastes BETTER than airpopped. Everyone has their own opinion.

Well, I prefer the taste of real butter to the powdery, slimy stuff.

I do it the super-old fashioned way ( I grew up with no electricity so have some weird habits).

I take a large pot and put in one-two tablespoons olive oil, which is heart healthy and gives the popcorn a wonderful nutty flavor, heat the oil, put popcorn in, then shake vigorously over flame until the popping stops. Then I put on butter and salt, sometimes shredded cheese or parmesan, and sometimes Furikake (there are two types that are gluten-free) and sometimes all of them!

Of course I consider popcorn a complete meal, so there you have it.

When I'm feeling lazy I just pop it in the microwave (always ORville) and then add stuff.

I used to put in little rice cakes (Arare), but they have soy sauce on them so I can't have them anymore. :(

Thats how we made it growing up too, I had forgotten that. Thanks for bringing back so fond memories. It must have been before I was 7 or 8 , so many years ago.....it was such a treat. Then we got an air popper, then the microwave came around. I feel old now.

Well, still no response from Cousing Willie's. I guess it is safe to assume that the answer would be that it is full of gluten. Who knows? Anyway, we are sticking with Act II. The Movie Style Butter popcorn is awesome & totally addictive.

I take Orville's micro popcorn to work on night shift. I eat a LOT of popcorn, even before my celiac disease dx, so was I ever glad my favourite snack was safe! I only make hot air popped at home, and put real butter on it, mmmmmmmmm. I have zero guilt about it because I just think of all the stuff I can't have!! I can't watch Survivor or a hockey game without my 'corn!

I never ate a lot of popcorn before my husband was diagnosed & it became one of his favorite snacks. Now I find myself taking a bag of it for lunch. I'm hooked.

People can probably mail it to you on here. But I figure its easy enough just to go straight to the source.

You'll need to register and make a log in. But then you can always grab it when needed and updated. Actually, I think you can just grab them as guest, don't know, already have all my login stuff. Just go to messages tab, and the first section of messages is gluten-free Product list.

My favourite way to have popcorn is by using a pot, olive oil and kernels. Nothing beats it....it is delicious!! I salt them when they're done.

    • Hi All, I just got back from my first visit to Montreal in a couple years, and had to report back. STUFF IS HAPPENING THERE!

      One word: Croissant.
      CROISSAAAAANT!  Yes, the flaky exterior fluffy interior pull it apart in sheets melt in your mouth OMG I didn't think I'd ever eat anything like this again how is this even possible kind of croissant. I think I might have had a religious experience while eating it. In any case, if you happen to be in La Belle Province, in one of my favourite cities as it is, run, don't walk (or better yet, hop on the metro to Jean Talon) to La Boulangerie Marquise Sans Gluten. The most beautiful gluten-free bakery I have even been in. Aside from the aforementioned croissant, they have beautiful cakes and pastries, pizza, quiche, tarts, fresh bread, bagels, etc etc... Only downside is that their products do contain soy (I cheated. It was worth it) and some contain dairy (again, worth it), so if you have serious problems with that, please stay away (cause if you step in there you WILL be tempted. For reals).

      Aside from that, other places to go:
      - Creperie du Marche - at Jean Talon market. They only do buckwheat crepes, and they are pretty good.
      - Arepera du Plateau - not only the best arepas (cornbread sandwiches) I've ever had, but known as one of the best spots in the city. Get there early.
      - Mais - my favourite spot for tacos. Most everything on the menu is usually gluten-free, but be sure to ask.
      - Cookie Stephanie - another nice bakery in Old Montreal
      - Luv - lovely new mostly gluten-free vegetarian spot.
      (not listed as gluten-free but still amazing and very accomodating):
      - Le Vin Papillon - hands down one of the most amazing meals ever. They asked me what my restructions were before I even said, and put together 3 amazing plates. Of course, the wine is amazing too.
      - Lawrence or Larry's - have eaten at both and both very accomodating and lovely.
      Generally, I find  knowledge of gluten-free (sans gluten) at most reputable Montreal restaurants is pretty high, so don't restrict yourself. Just call and ask beforehand.

      And of course, don't forget to drink some GLUTENBERG! 100% gluten-free and pretty dang good beer. Pick from their blonde, IPA, red ale, very nice belgian white, and if you can find them, their special releases like Myrcene de Glace. (I may  have returned with a suitcase full of beers)

      Closed since I was last there (RIP)
      - Mi & Stu - I used to get bagels at this bakery up Rue Park, but they have since closed their Montreal location and moved to a commercial space. Bummer.

      Have you been to or live in Montreal? Leave your suggestions here!
    • The original poster hasn't been on for many months.
    • Hi ScarlettsDad, Sorry such a slow reply to this, but I also live in Toronto and definitely have a few safe suggestions. Of course, my tastes and your 5-year-olds are probably quite different, but I've got a few we might all agree on. First of all, as a general rule: don't order the gluten-free pizza/pasta anywhere unless the kitchen can prove they use dedicated equipment to prepare and cook it: fresh water for pasta, separate prep area and oven or other protective measures for pizza. Any place with flour flying around on a regular basis is going to be a real gamble no matter how careful the staff are. Anyway, here are a few Celiac safe and kid-friendly spots:

      Off the Hook: fish and chips, you say!? that are safe?! YES! It's true! This fantastic fish&chips joint is on Broadview just south of Danforth. They have a gluten-free chickpea batter, and keep everything safe by having a dedicated fryer for gluten free things, and another dedicated fryer just for fries! I have eaten there many many times and never gotten glutened (though it's still fried food, so have to go easy on it). It's a good spot to hang out if it's not busy, or you can get take out.

      The Dirty Bird: This is more of a takeout spot, but again with the fried food. They use a rice flour batter for the chicken, and the fries are safe too. They do make regular waffles, but can do gluten-free as well. There are 2 locations - one in Kensington market, and one on Bloor near Bathurst. Arepa Cafe - on Queen between spadina and bathurst. One of my favourite places to get a quick meal, but you could easly hang around for a while. Arepas are corn bread stuffed with stuff. Little tricky eating for small hands, so can get a platter instead. Almost everything (except I think for fried stuff) is gluten-free. Magic Oven - I can't do dairy either, so this is my occassional pizza splurge. They are very conscious of gluten free safety, have a dedicated fryer for fries (and wings!), make pretty decent pizza though it is not cheap.
      Il Fornello - another safe place for pizza, though also not cheap. I believe one of the owners is celiac, so they put gluten-free pizza in a special bag in the oven to keep it safe. If you like Mexican, the Playa Cabana family of restaurants is good option. One of their owners is Celiac, so they actually mark items WITH gluten on their menus. And if very adventurous, Chez Riz at Yonge and Lawrence, and on Mt Pleasant are both asian fusion (think dim sum and sushi) with completely dedicated gluten-free sections of their kitchens. There are lots of good restaurants that will accommodate gluten free, but they do tend to be on the "nicer" side, not likely a chain. Wherever you do want to go, be sure to call in advance and ask what they can do for your little one. And of course, if you want to take the family out but are afraid to feed her anything there, ask if you can bring something for her. Most restaurants are accommodating as long as everyone else is eating. It's also helpful to ask around your neighbourhood. Of course, there's always desert:
      If you don't know already, there are several excellent 100% gluten free bakeries in town: Bunner's Bakeshop (in Kensington and the Junction) and  Almond Butterfly (on Harbord) are my favorites. Anyway, don't be afraid to eat out. Just plan ahead and go prepared. If something doesn't feel right, dig out the "back-up" meal Good luck!
