In a heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, syrup, salt and vanilla together. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring often. Remove it from the heat and stir in 1/2 tsp. baking soda, quickly and thoroughly. Pour the mixture over the popcorn in the paper bag. Stir the popcorn with a wooden spoon and shake the bag well.
Put the popcorn, in the bag, in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Take it out, stir it and shake it well. Turn the bag over and microwave it on high for 1 minute. Remove the bag of popcorn from the microwave and shake the bag well. Pour the caramel popcorn out on cookie sheets to cool. Store in airtight containers.
