Before the fat starts coming out, quickly pinch the bag closed.

‘Tis the season for packing and shipping. But you’re not a shipping station and you’ve got odd-shaped boxes and no bubble wrap. Just fill a few quart size Ziploc® brand bags with (real!) popcorn. It’s much more colorful, and Grandma will thank you for the snack...and the gift!
