These tasted just like the flavored popcorn balls I had as a child. I doubled the batch because I only had the larger size jello box. I think next time I will add another 2 cups of popcorn because I like a little more popcorn to syrup ratio. I found it was easiest to cover the corn with the syrup if I put the corn in a square baking pan and poured the syrup over it. The syrup goes straight to the bottom and in a regular bowl it's hard to get the stuff from the bottom to coat the top. I used spray crisco to coat my hands so the syrup wouldn't stick to me and it was just fine.
