I could hear the popcorn popping and sizzling in the machine I could also hear the popcorn bursting out of the machine and it sounded like a hair dryer. The popcorn smelt like hot butter that you get from the movies. The fluffy sheep looking popcorn was flying out of the machine like lightning bolts hitting a tree. The nice, crunchy, soft taste was like when I went to the movies. It's texture was of polystyrene like when we were moving and I accidentally got polystyrene in my mouth.
