Orville Redenbacher's Organic PopcornFew things in life irk me as much as getting duped. Caveat emptor: Because Ralph’s refuses to provide meaningful unit price labels — and because the box is exactly the same size and shape as the other forty-two varieties of their microwave popcorn — you might be fooled into thinking that the “sale” price of Orville Redenbacher’s Organic Butter flavor is a bargain. Look closely, though. This package only contains two bags of popcorn. What’s worse is that (a) this variety tastes like crap compared to the “regular” butter flavor and (2) it has a very low “popping yield”. Damn you, Orville!
