Most people look for and buy popcorn on the snack food aisle, where a 1 pound package of popcorn sells for over $3.00, a pound of organic popcorn starts at $5.00, and a box of 3 microwaveable bags of popcorn can’t be found for less than $2.00 when on sale. However, you can find organic popcorn on the bulk food aisle for $1.89 a pound.
If you do the math, you will find that buying organic popcorn from the bulk food aisle costs less than $0.12 an ounce. I use a Hot Air Popper to pop our popcorn instead of buying microwave popcorn. Ultimately it is less expensive and it reduces our exposure to unwanted chemicals.
It is worth your time to see what is available on the bulk food aisle; you may just be able to find a higher quality item, for much less money.
