    My partner has kindly bought some popcorn kernels in an attempt to make our own low fat/sugar popcorn for our "film night" So I don't have to worry about all the oil and butter you'd get with pre made! :)

    Does anyone have any idea how I could flavour them? I have little imagination so all I can think is mixing in some splenda to sweeten it, does anyone else have some more exciting ideas?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm a bit weird...I like salted popcorn! If you don't mind savoury popcorn there's a few good ideas here:

    Sweet, umm...how about cinnamon? Splenda would work well too :)

    Maybe if you grated some lemon zest or orange zest and put it in while it was popping it may absorb some of the taste.

    Would something like vanilla essence work? Maybe it would make it too soggy, I don't know!

    Thanks for the replies! I like mine salted and sweet but the boyfriend insists on sweet! Just done a batch with splenda and it hit the spot :) but will give the vanilla essence a go, hopefully it will turn out alright :)
