My family loves popcorn. I don’t know why, but we can never seem to sit down to watch a movie (or tv) without some freshly popped popcorn. Apparently we aren’t alone – Americans consume 16 billion quarts of popcorn! It’s a healthy snack alternative to chips, cookies, and other junk food. It has just 31 calories per cup, is made of whole grains, and is naturally low in fat and calories. It’s a great in-between meal or after school snack since it satisfies but doesn’t spoil the appetite.
That’s why I was so excited when Jolly Time recently sent me some of their products to try out. Jolly Time is an independent and family-owned company that has produced and marketed Jolly Time popcorn for nearly 100 years now. In fact, it is the first branded popcorn ever produced! They have a variety of traditional and microwave popcorn products sold nation wide and they are the only popcorn endorsed by Weight Watchers. I got to try the Healthy Pop® Kettle Corn 100 Cal. Bags, Healthy Pop® Butter Flavor 100 Cal. Bags and of Blast O Butter® Minis. YUM
What I really loved about the popcorn is that they came in single serving bags – I don’t know about you, but there are many times we pop a big bag and end up not eating the whole thing. Not only that, but these indiviual 100 calorie bags are a great way to control your portions! You know that you can eat the entire bag without having to feel guily – gotta love that. And they are a great size snack too. So many 100 calorie snacks seem to leave me feeling very unsatisfied, but the Jolly Time 100 calorie bags were a perfect amount to satisfy my craving and fill my belly at the same time. The Healthy Pop Butter flavor was my favorite. It had just the right amount of butter flavor and was only 100 calories. My husband may disagree and say the Blast O Butter was the best. I agree that it was delicious, but I prefer the lower calorie option.
