Popcorn and popcorn salt


Where can I buy different kinds of popcorn (the type that you cook on the stove) and popcorn salt? I looked in Whole Foods but couldn't find it.

    1. I'd try Zabar's or Eli's maybe. Or even one of those popcorn stores...isn't there one somewhere in Times Square?

      Popcorn salt is a finely ground salt that is almost like a powder. It's great because it sticks to the popcorn very well. I've found popcorn salt in the spice aisle at Gristedes. Granted...that was a while ago, but it was there.

      1. I think I heard that pickling salt is the same as (or very similar to) popcorn salt. I'm not sure if that's true, though.

        BTW: as other posters have pointed out, you can buy popcorn at most grocery stores. Last time I bought it, it was on the bottom shelf. Only one variety.

          1. most grocery stores carry popcorn salt in the popcorn section next to that creepy butter flavored popping oil. Real butter and romano cheese for American Idol tonight!
