We have never offered it. Make it right in the first place, and you'll get very few requests.

Alright I bite Andrew ... Why don't you share your secret to making popcorn right.

Slap, any idea what percentage took butter before?

We get our popcorn from Snappy in Iowa. It comes in a packet (different sizes for different kettles) with seasonings and seasoned coconut oil (the consistency of butter). We've never offered toppings. But we do offer Kernal Seasons (sp) seasonings including a butter one that can be sprinkled on.

Taking away customer options doesn't seem like a good way to compete in the modern crowded entertainment field.

we've gotten away from Kernel Seasons and now sell Shake 'Ems for cost. 50 cents for a small shaker in different flavors. No mess, no waste and no kids dumping a whole shakerfull on a small popcorn.

Today I'm half tempted to stop offering toppings of all kinds. A lady just asked if she could order a large but split it into multiple bags so she can sprinkle different flavors on each of them. We offer cups so families can scoop cupfuls out of a large bag, but no that's not good enough! I think what irritated me more was the way she flipped her dainty little hands around and constantly over-enunciated all the "s" sounds. Time to think on this one and establish a policy, but how do you accommodate this person without being a jerk?

I like the idea of those little 50 cent tubs of flavoring.

No problem competing ... I don't see topping an issue unless you have a lot of kids .
