This was delicious. I would recommend it if you like trying new popcorn toppings. I can't believe someone would use peanut oil instead of coconut and then give this a bad review. They are to totally different oils with very different flavors.

First, I have to admit, I didn't have any coconut oil, so I don't know if that makes a huge difference. I used peanut oil instead, it tasted okay...but I really want Fred's recipe...a friend of a friend who won't share his popcorn seasoning secrets...dang it. I'd give his popcorn 5 stars and him a -4 for being selfish!

I am usually the first to substitute ingredients that I don't have, but for this recipe if you don't use coconut oil then you are really missing out. The coconut oil is part of what makes this recipe great. The only thing that makes this a little better are raisins and salt.... peanuts are good too. YUM.

Very tasty! I actually heated the coconut oil, added the spices and unpopped kernels and popped it on the stove. Delicious! Will definitely make again!

I ate this every day for a week. Soo good. A must try!

Fantastic! I used 1/4tsp chili powder instead of hot sauce. Everyone gobbled it up. I will make this on a regular basis. We call it Masala Popcorn.

A delightful twist for a change. Not 'better' than another recipe I have (onion soup mix) but a nice change and worthy of making again.

Great taste. The only thing I wasn't pleased with was that so much of the flavor sank to the bottom of the bowl! The flavor mixed into the popped corn before sinking, though!
