Now we have all kinds of flavored popcorn, drowning in butter or fake butter, These boxes, with six bags, usually run from $3.50 to over $5, while a bag of popcorn such as Jolly Time© – two pounds worth – costs less than $2 and probably makes triple what you would get from the bags-in-the-box popcorn.
