This snack is unlike anything I've ever tasted. Everything you expect from caramel corn, but the flavor profile is unique and delish with, dare I say, some yum umami going on from the fish sauce? Fish sauce is a sticky issue for lots of people. If that's you, it's not overwhelming, and the bit of lime is a perfect (and true to Pad Thai) fish sauce counter-flavor. So great savory stuff happening with this one, but definitely a sweet snack first, if you wondered. I used the suggested hot sauce substitute and that was fine. Some people like to shake extra salt on their popcorn. This one is tons of hot fun with a dusting of CAYENNE pepper, especially if the hot sauce doesn't kick as much as you want it to. I suggest reserving that extra ingredient for your own portion, however. Ha!
