I like popcorn but popcorn sometimes doesn't like me.  This hull-less type of popcorn supposedly has a thinner and more agreeable hull that isn't as wicked for those of us with digestive issues or dental restrictions.  I heard about it at work and looked it up on the internet.                      Anyone tried it?

I used to use this stuff when I had braces! It was nice because you could still eat it and not worry about the brackets. I've been working at a movie theater since I was diagnosed so I am/was around popcorn a TON and it never seemed to bother me...I think the hull-less stuff it worth a shot. Everyone is different and who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and you'll digest it just fine :)

You're talking about an actual popcorn, right? Not the stuff that is like butter flavored Cheetos?

Interesting. I'd surely try it! Although I do like the puff type ones too - but it's not the same.

Yep, real popcorn. I ordered some, I hope it tastes ok. I hope they don't send me a bag of packing peanuts with a note, "enjoy sucker, ha ha ha."

Interesting - we do miss our popcorn - we were addicted to it! Am too afraid to try it yet, but when I know I am in remission I definitely will. Where do you find it?
