My parents gave Rich a tub of popcorn for his birthday in November. (Terrific gift idea!) By the photo you can tell we certainly made a dent and that it was very much appreciated and enjoyed. But now that we've had it for nearly 4 months, it was time to say goodbye.
However, let me say this, the popcorn did not go without a fight!
I don't know what came over me, but when I opened this bad boy up I went to TOWN on the cheese popcorn!! I shoved in handful after handful like a maniac!! At one point I caught myself pacing in the kitchen; I was trying to convince myself to just put some popcorn in a ziploc so I didn't have to cram it in my mouth and could eat at a normal pace. But if I saved some I would have to eat it, so I shouldn't save any (hence the pacing).
It was crazy! After ~15-20 handfuls I wiped my then orange hand on a damp paper towel and threw the dirty towel in with the popcorn. Finally the hold the popcorn had on me was relinquished. I was free (and the popcorn was tossed out)!!
*Just in case you are wondering, while it was almost 4-months old, the popcorn was still delicious!!!
