Does anyone have a copycat recipe for Kernel Seasons caramel flavor popcorn seasoning? I enjoy it immensely at the movies, and it seems like it could be replicated at home somehow. I'd like to try a homemade version before buying the product. Any ideas?

I'm not sure about that seasoning you are mentioning, but you can make caramel corn yourself. Brown sugar is the key.
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup popcorn kernels.
Heat the oil and add 2 popcorn kernels. When they pop, add the sugar and popcorn kernels. You MUST keep shaking the pot otherwise your sugar will burn. Becareful, the sugar/caramel topping will be hot! It is so good and addicting. You can also use white sugar instaed of brown and add salt afterwards for kettle corn.
There are a few caramel popcorn recipes in this ThriftyFun archive link:
A rich flavored sounding recipe here:
A microwave recipe here:
And a Cracker Jack's copycat recipe here:
If it helps to know, these are the ingredients in Kernels Caramel Seasoning: Sugar, Brown Sugar, Natural Flavor, Caramel Color, and not more than 2% Silicon Dioxide, Tricalcium Phosphate and Soybean Oil added to prevent caking.
