Favorite popcorn alternative?

Tue Jun 08, 2021 11:03 pm

so i know some people with ileostomy can eat popcorn, but sometimes the crohn's I have really doesn't like it when I have it (fiber has always been an issue for me) so... What's your favorite popcorn alternative? 🤔🍿?

Hi WI,

  Wow, I don't think there is an alternative for popcorn...........it's pretty unique!  I guess if you put a gun to my head I'd say rice cakes.......or puffed rice of some sort.  Rice Krispies comes to mind.  I remember when I had Crohn's...........I missed popcorn terribly.  I hated going to the movies because as soon as you opened the door you smelt that popcorn!....................that I couldn't have.  Torture..........pure torture it was!!

I and a popcorn addict! Got to have it! Trying to cut down on it, and since Covid,  I have done better by just not going to the movies. Man I miss my refillible bucket! I am not sure there is a substitute. Sounds like Ritz has the best one. May have to try that myself! Bacon will work any time though! Who doesn't love bacon! Lol

I really miss popcorn. My son loves it so he makes it all the time. It's TORTURE to smell it and not be able to eat it. 

Popcorn flavoured Crispy Minis aren't bad, but I've really never found anything that's as good as the real thing. If I do, I'll let you know!

For me if I don't smell popcorn..........I don't miss it.  But if I get a whiff........it's all over!

Here's what Dr Google said:

Why does popcorn smell so good? A German chemist actually figured this out. He broke down the aroma of popcorn into 23 key odor compounds.

The four strongest were a fatty scent, a spicy scent, a roasted coffee scent and (gee) a roasted popcorn scent. He also found traces of cloves, mushrooms, caramel, vanilla, roasted potatoes and cooked apples.

 

So when Junior makes popcorn just put a clothespin over your nose........and all will be good.

Ok, probably not!

Chester's Puff Corn in butter flavor.I couldn't believe how much they taste like movie theater popcorn but truly better because there is no hulls or unpopped kernals!They are puffs that melt in your mouth.Warning... they are addictive.

I like Pop Corners sea salt. They don't have the butter flavor but are lite and crunchy. You can add the butter...
