poppin'good, Member mydear1

I have been making this for years. It always turns out right---and it is never boring, because the flavors are limitless. I used to make it for my classes when I was teaching---they would BEG (what good behavior they had!!!) for it as a class treat. I also used to make it for family movie nights at church. I couldn't make enough----I had to share the recipe! At home, everyone had their favorite, so we had to take turns choosing the flavor!
