Sometimes you have to appreciate the deliciousness of a processed, industrial food product. And the melty cheddar popcorn cheese that comes in 30-pound buckets is one of those products, says TransplantedCajun. It’s not a powder; it’s a “meltable, oily, gooey, cheesy product” that is mixed with freshly popped popcorn to add butter, cheese, and salt all at once. “Kraft Macaroni and Cheese powder does not EVEN approximate this cheese, not even close,” says TransplantedCajun.
Since it’s only sold in those huge tubs for popcorn concessionaires, it may not make sense for home cooks—unless you can find some friends who are willing to split 30 pounds of cheese product with you.
