Microwave popcorn has turned into one of the easiest, go-to snacks in the cupboard. This relatively healthy indulgence is made readily available by a variety of companies, with the best brands offering several different types of popcorn. There are several popular popcorn brands.

Orville Redenbacher's

Orville Redenbacher's offers a variety of popcorn types for its consumers. It maintains that its hybrid kernel creates a lighter, fluffier popcorn. The company offers regular microwave popcorn, a sweet version of the popular snack, Smart Pop and natural popcorn. Each of these categories has several varieties, many ranging from plain to butter-flavoured. All these popcorn styles can be made in a microwave oven.

Pop Secret

Pop Secret is another popular brand of microwave popcorn. The company offers a classic version of the snack with a variety of butter flavours --- from regular butter to cinema butter. It also has 100-calorie popcorn packs and kettle corn packages, so any popcorn lover can find the style he likes best.

Act II

Another great brand of microwave popcorn is Act II. Act II offers the standard varieties of microwave popcorn, including butter, cinema butter, kettle corn and light butter. In addition, it offers a movie theater-style tub that contains kernels in the bottom. This tub can be microwaved and then used as a container, making it the perfect option for a family movie night or date night at home.

Jiffy Pop

Jiffy Pop is a brand of popcorn that does not offer a microwaved version. Jiffy Pop popcorn comes in a disposable foil pan that can be popped on a hob or over an outdoor fire. This portable popcorn snack makes a fun treat on a camping trip or on a winter evening. It offers a different flavour and texture than microwave popcorn. Jiffy Pop has been distributed since 1958.
