Yeah a large is gonna be at least a gallon, great for sharing if you're with like 6 people.

I like movie popcorn, but I never add any butter or other toppings, and usually we get the smallest bucket/bag.

Also, Target sells bags of popcorn and a 16 oz soda for only $1 so it's hard not to get that when I have a lot of shopping to get done!

When we placed out order at the concession counter the girl asked "Are you sure you want that size?" and pointed to the largest damned popcorn bucket I have ever seen. It had to have held close to five gallons!

We ended up ordering a bucket a couple of sizes down.
OMG!!! See that right there is just over kill!

Yep, it's the combo #1. Maybe it's local...but I got the same deal in Illinois over the weekend.

this is actually the first time i've heard popcorn used as a plural word. regardless of how big the bag is, or how much my greedy arse has eaten, i've always refered to it in the singular. maybe that is out of guilt.
