its called Flavacol. 35 oz container for 8 dollars.

the actual movie theater butter flavor for popcorn. mix it with some coconut oil and make your popcorn. one container should last you the rest of your life.

I buy everything I possibly can on Amazon, and you should be too if you're an anti-social shitlord.

You know how many days straight of video games and not leaving the house one can accomplish when everything you can possibly need is delivered straight to your door, sometimes on the same day you ordered it?

I ordered a ton of shit off Amazon as well. It would probably be even worse if I got same day delivery here.

how you cook it?

me i do it in a pan, a 12in pan can comfortably hold 1/2cup. i dump the coco oil on there, let it get hot then dump the kernals. swish to coat then wait. (by now you'll know how long it takes to pop), 30s b4 it pops i put in 1tbs of butter, swoosh again. then when it's about to pop i dump in the flavacol, swoosh and it all starts popping. to me this is enough butter/flavacol.

if your guests want more, have some melted butter on hand, and just pour it on the popcorn, while you shake it in the pan. (also necessary if you want to season the popcorn w/ flavors like jalaapeno or ranch powder)

I'd say about 25% of the stuff I order is available for same day delivery. I still have to stop myself on a Sunday when I wake up and realize/groan that I need something from Home Depot, only to remember that I can save myself the trip and have it on my doorstep in about 5-8 hours..

You have me seriously beat.

My best year ever was 2013 with only 154 purchases.

My first ever amazon purchase was March 5th, 2004. Logitech Driving Force Pro for PS2. Cost me $114.99

Memories.

If I'm lazy, I'll use their pre-packaged doses, but I've reversed engineered what's in those packages so I've bought their oil, some popcorn salt and use Orville's corn to make a batch. I cook over a camp stove because I don't want to scratch my glass cooktop.

I bought one of those collapsible silicone microwave popcorn bowls recently and find them to be pretty good if you're just after some plain popcorn (calorie reasons or w/e) or don't want to fuck around with a mess. Throw a couple tablespoons of kernals into it and put it in the microwave and you're good to go. It cleans pretty easy even if you put some oil in with it.

107 orders in 2018 and I buy everything I can on amazon.
288 orders in 2012 but I got my first kindle reader then and probably got 150 free books. plus we had our first kid in 2012 and I might have gone a bit off the deep end too.
First order in 2001 and I'm pretty positive it was Anarchy Online but the amazon website is acting up on me. Might have been a EQ expansion.


Edit: yup was 2 copies of Anarchy Online and that's all my Amazon.com account has, odd though that the amazon.de (germany) account I've been using since then shows 2 orders in 2001 but no details.

Yeah, there must've been guest checkout earlier, because my first order is definitely not the first thing I got from Amazon. This is my first in March 06.
