We bought an air popper a few months ago. I rarely read instructions but for some reason I did. The instructions made it clear not to use organic popcorn kernels. Weird, eh? Well as you may know, I don’t really like to follow the rules. I have bulk organic kernels and I was darn well going to use them! And guess what? They work just as well as “normal” kernels. I wonder to the reason why they say no to organic. Is it a conspiracy?? Ha ha. I love a good conspiracy theory. I will name it the Orville conspiracy.
