    Where to source Good/Cheap Popcorn Kernels?

    Hello,

    A rather strange question I know, but I have a popcorn maker in the cupboard with no Popcorn Kernels for it. If I recall they all went out of date when it wasn't in use for a good while, but I'm now in the mood for some “home made” popcorn .

    So where can I buy (off line or online) some quality but cheap popcorn kernels to pop?

    I've seen some on eBay but with postage (as you would expect) they are pretty expensive and I've looked in Tesco's with no luck. The usual Google searches don't come up with much either and the only decent looking website with some on was this one:

    http://www.simplyspice.co.uk/popcorn-maize-p-577.html

    I'm assuming that's the same as the Kernels, but again the postage is excessive (£3+) unless you order £25's worth of goods and get it free, so really a supermarket or other high street store would be better. Anyone know of ones that stock it?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    Mark

    health food shops should do it, or anywhere else that sells bags of nuts, seeds, grains, etc. Really shouldn't be expensive, there is bugger all to it.

    Ah yes, I knew I had forgotten to check somewhere! Indeed, they shouldn't be expensive when there's no postage.

    Thanks!

    I use my hot air popcorn maker to roast green coffee beans, nice and fresh cuppa.

    Your local "weigh & save" or similar should do this as well

    That's it, everyone post a month after I ask!

    Either way I got some from Lidl's when they had them back in again, infact I've likely purchased far too many bags, they won't get used again and once they are out of date the vicious cycle begins again!

    But thanks for your replies, at least I have a few more places to get them from in the future.
