Popcorn ROCKS. In honor of National Popcorn Poppin' Month, here are some
of our favorite pop-tastic picks and some shocking stats. Enjoy...
Can't control yourself around the corn? Just pop up a single-serving size bag
and go to town! (Not literally. You can stay home and eat it.) Jolly Time,
Orville Redenbacher's and Pop Secret all make AWESOME 94% fat-free
microwave popcorn in single-serving size bags that rack up only 90 - 110
calories and hardly any fat. The best of the bunch (in our opinion) is Jolly
Time Healthy Pop in Kettle Corn flavor. We can't get enough of it...
Our pick for the most unique and delicious popcorn is... Jolly Time's Healthy
Pop Caramel Apple Pop Corn (no, that's not a typo, Jolly Time spells popcorn
that way). It combines the sticky sweetness of caramel with apple-y
goodness to make completely guilt-free, low-fat popcorn -- all for just 110
calories and 2 grams of fat per serving. Woohoo!
Every now and then, it's ok to splurge...
Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn - Ooooooo, Oogie. If we didn't have insane
fantasies about your Sun-Dried Tomato & Parmesan popcorn, we'd
completely ignore your existence. After all, each 1-oz. serving contains 142
calories and 7g of fat. But this stuff is simply too good to ignore, and we hear
Oogie's is MINUTES away from offering single-serving size bags of their
gourmet popcorn, which will make portion control that much easier. Hurry
up, will ya?!
LesserEvil - These guys whip up all-natural, fancy KettleCorn that'll knock
your popcorn-lovin' socks off. Our fave of all is their Black&White, which
pairs up LesserEvil's famous kettle corn kernels with ones coated in a sweet
cocoa glaze. Yum! Each cup of the stuff will cost you 120 calories and 2g of
fat. Not too bad...and SO worth it.
Always in Season...
Looking to add some zazzle to your popcorn? Sprinkle on some Kernel
Season's! These low calorie gourmet sprinklings come in 10 flavors, but we
recommend sticking with the Parmesan & Garlic, Barbeque, White Cheddar
or Apple Cinnamon.
One large, butter-soaked, movie theater popcorn contains more than 1,500
calories and over 115 grams of fat! Even if you skip the butter, that tub'll
cost you around 1,150 calories and 75 grams of fat.
CHEW ON THIS:
Today, October 5th, is National Apple Betty Day. Celebrate with this apple
pie sub instead!
