TOPIC: Act II 50lb. bags

Act II 50lb. bags 10 Jan 2013 21:19 #39660

Act II 50lb. bags were our kernel of choice. Recently Sam's Club stopped carrying them. Does anyone else use them, and if so, where do you buy them? Thanks in advance for any help.

Never had problems with what they are carrying now (sorry, I forget the brand). We used 3 different brands of popcorn over 6 years. The only times we saw a difference was when we changed the oil. So, you should be fine using what Sam's sells now.

I agree - the brand Sam's club sells now is of poor quality.

We had to stop using it also.

We had to get another brand - I think Weaver - from a concession supply company and we are pleased with it.

Are you located near any popcorn growers? In '06 when I managed a theatre in NE Iowa I bought my corn from an area grower. I forget what I paid but it was great stuff.

There may have been an issue with the seed from Sams club for a while. I didn't personally use it at the time, but I was just on their website, and there are many complaints about how the quality was poor. There are replies from the company stating that they were aware of the problem and have corrected it.

Yep, that whole thing was a scam on the american public!
Cause it USES Oil to Plant the corn, Oil to fertilize the corn, Oil to harvest the corn Oil to process the corn into Ethenol, end result it takes MORE oil then it saves, and drove up food costs for corn, Beef or anthing normaly fed with corn!

sad... :(
