Ass Kickin' Habanero Popcorn

Taste test: Normally we don't review microwave popcorn, but when I saw "habanero" I had to make an exception.

The instructions said to cook for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the microwave, and to stop once the's a gap of more than 2 or 3 seconds between pops. We kept very close watch on the microwave, listening for pops. All of a sudden, we smelled intense burning and hit the stop button. The elapsed time was 2 minutes and 4 seconds. A clump of popcorn at the bottom of the bag had burned badly. We threw out the burnt pieces. The other ones generally fell into three colors — light gray, white and yellow. The tasted quite good, with great crispness and a nice habanero kick.

Smell test: For most of the cooking, a very nice buttery popcorn smell. But the sudden burning smell brought with it fumes that caused sudden, severe coughing by both of the microwave-watchers.

From the package: “Kick yo' ass® hot!” .... “Premium Microwave Popcorn” ... “Ingredients: Popcorn, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Spices, Natural & Artificial Flavors, Habanero Pepper.”
