I am a big popcorn fan. Recently, I came across a box of Act Two Xtreme Butter Microwave Popcorn, in the snack section of my local Rite aid drug store. This popcorn looked really good. I could not resist it. I decided to purchase it, try it out and write an unbiased product review all about my personal experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
There is nothing better than fresh popped popcorn and a good movie. Wether at the movie theater or for a home movie night, fresh popcorn and quick popping microwave popcorn are always welcome. When I spotted a box of three individual bags of Act Two Xtreme Butter Microwave Popcorn at my local Rite Aid drug store, I was thrilled! This product was on sale. I bought a box for one dollar and seventy cents. A good snack food budget friendly low price, indeed. I liked that deal. One thing that drew me to this popcorn was the extreme butter flavor promise. I do like lots of butter with my movie popcorn, I admit. This snack looked quite promising to me. I could not wait to taste it!
This buttered popcorn is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I prepared it. I placed a bag right side up in my microwave and heated on high for two minutes. It popped perfectly. I have a rotating tray in my microwave and this makes it great for popping microwave popcorn evenly. Almost every kernel of this popcorn popped. I liked that! It smelled heavenly!
When I tasted Act Two Xtreme Butter Microwave Popcorn, I liked it. It does have a nice buttery flavor. The popcorn is a decent size, some bigger than others. It does deliver a butter popcorn experience. Since I bought this popcorn on sale, I was not disappointed. It is true that other name brands like Pop Secret leave this one in the dust. Still, it is a good product. If it is on sale, I will probably buy it. While it is not the best, it is good. I rate it four stars out of five stars. It makes an affordable and microwave friendly buttery popcorn treat. I appreciated that.

I enjoyed trying Act Two Xtreme Butter Microwave Popcorn and writing this product review about it. One serving provides twenty percent of my daily whole grains need. Awesome. This snack is advertised as the best value in popcorn and I agree, as long it is on sale. Each bag has over two servings in it and each box has three bags in it. Not bad.
