@Tissyanne  ..... You are right that is "built into the price of the food". The biggest costs being "built into the food" and the other merchandise are the employees salaries/benefits, etc. Someone has to pay for the employees income/benefits, etc. and that falls on the consumers.

I have never tried this popcorn, but if I was impressed enough, I would try it.

I have an air popper in the cupboards that hasn't been used in years.  You can get inexpensive organic unpopped corn at TJs.  Sprinkle a little nutritional yeast....treat time for pennies!

I have to admit I used to spend a lot on the Q's hull-less popcorn. When my mom became very ill, she really enjoyed popcorn. I told her about the popcorn without hulls and I bought her a bag. She loved it, so was always ordering more popcorn for her. 

 

For my mom, nothing was too expensive. For me, not so much Smiley Very Happy

Why would you possibly want to  sprinkle yeast, on your popcorn? 

How about some nice melted butter?

FYI, Nutritional yeast (not the baking kind) is used to substitute for cheese flavor in certain diets.

i agree with you about the lobster. being overpriced for sure. i could get part of a bushel for that. it's a shame because i might purchase something if they were more reasonable.
