Popcorn Quality

I am so addicted to my air popper.  Until now, I haven't really paid attention to the brand of popcorn I've used.  So last time at the store when I saw the Kroger brand was $3 cheaper than the Orville Redenebacher brand, I snapped it up.

Unfortunately, I don't think this brand works as well with my airpopper and preffered toppings.    It's much drier, and so the seasoning I put on tickles my throat.  Has anyone else seen this?
