Default Where can I buy already-popped, plain, unflavored popcorn?

I'm trying to recreate the yummy but overpriced boy scout chocolate
caramel popcorn. Found an easy-sounding recipe involving popcorn,
chocolate chips, and caramel. But I can't believe that the hard part is
finding popcorn.

Grocery stores near me sell PLENTY of already-popped flavored (butter,
cheese especially), and popped and salted plain popcorn. But so far,
everyone I've asked has said that the kind of popcorn I need - unsalted,
unflavored - I can only get by buying unpopped popcorn then popping it
myself in an oil or hot air popper.

Any ideas where I can buy popcorn for what I need? I don't care if it's
simple, plain microwave (no butter preferred, no salt definitely) or
already-popped.

Maybe the recipe would be better using puffed wheat or rice.
They are most often sold unflavored and unsalted.

Do they not sell regular popping corn in the grocery stores. I used to make
caramel corn once in a while when our son was around but haven't made it in
years. I never had trouble finding it in a grocery store of bulk food
store.

What's the problem with popping it yourself? It's cheap and fast.

There's a chain of popcorn stores in the midwest called, I think,
Topsy's. Perhaps they'd make you plain unsalted popcorn in quantity.
Perhaps there is a store like that in your area. It won't be as cheap as
doing it yourself, and expense seems to be a concern of yours.

That's why I thought it was a troll.

Why not just pop it as required? We have a popper (that cost maybe $6.00)
that pops at least 4 quarts in a few minutes in the nuker with no oil. You
would just need a bag of regular popcorn and a similar unit.

But, but, but...it's a fund raiser. You get a great product plus the great
feeling of having contributed to a worthwhile cause.

The problem with popping it myself is that I lack a popper, and don't
feel like spending the money on something I'll use a couple times a year
max and then have taking up precious space the rest of the time.
