    Yeah you can buy them from the supermarket sometimes there in a funny section like baking or bread so require a hunt!! But you don't have to have a popcorn maker u can do it in a saucepan x

    :hmm:Hmmmm...the 5.5 syns is for 28g of plain popped popcorn.

    However, popcorn loses weight when it pops, so you could be having more of it for your syns....I think LOL

    ...an unpopped kernel is 14% water, so you could be having 28g + 14% to achieve 28g of popped. Probably.

    They do 100 calorie sweet and salty microwave bags here, which makes 6 cups of popped popcorn for 5 syns.
