Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! Healthy Snacking Challenge

Our Healthy Snacking Challenge with Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! Popcorn has been going well. We’ve been enjoying this healthy treat at different times throughout the week and I’m really surprised by how satisfying a serving size is! There are just 100 calories in a 6-cup serving size and there are seven and a half cups of tasty popped corn in one bag! That means if you find someone to share it with, you’ll be having a super low calorie snack that is 100% whole grain and good for you!

After popping a few bags since we started our Healthy Snacking Challenge, I finally figured out how to correctly open the top up! Wow, that was beyond easy — all I had to do was read the instructions *blush. There’s a little slit in the outer part of the bag that you separate just a bit in order to grab the plastic, then you pull back and it tears right off! I just thought I would share in case anyone else happens to be a dork like me!

While we do like to have our SmartPop! microwave popcorn while we’re watching a move, there are plenty of other times when we snack on it. The other day Pie actually asked me if she could have popcorn as her after school snack! I was pretty shocked — and proud of her for making a smart choice! Plus, I got to share the bag with her, WooHoo!

Just 3 cups of Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn provides an entire serving of whole grain

If you think about it, Popcorn is not only good for you, it can also be a more affordable option than all of that sugary and expensive junk food! Instead of buying a box of cupcakes for $4.00, we can make a better choice and buy a box of SmartPop! with the cool Pop Up Bowl for $3.68. If we use the $1.00 off coupon found on Orville Redenbacher’s Facebook page then we’ll be getting a great deal for 12 servings of popcorn at only $2.68! Smart!

While you’re on the Facebook page, check out the fun PopCam game, you can try to catch virtual popcorn using your webcam, fun!

SmartPop! and a movie

Does this SmartPop! Pop up Bowl give anyone else a strange urge to put it upside down on your head as a hat? Anyone?

No? I guess it’s just me….

Anyways, when I’m eating my popcorn, instead of wearing it, I feel great knowing that this delicious low-fat and high-fiber treat is absolutely guilt-free. It tastes good with just enough butter and salt flavor, it’s pretty, it’s ready to eat in less than 3 minutes — what more could you ask for in a snack? How about a giveaway!
