Popcorn!


Too funny. I had the hardest time figuring out how many points my Orville Redenbacher 94% fat free smart pop popcorn was for the WHOLE bag... well apparently I'm not alone.... I was on my favorite blogsite, Roni's Weigh and found this old post of hers:


This is one of the most asked questions on the Weight Watchers boards. Why is it so tough calculate points for popcorn? Let me break down the brand I eat.
Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop 94% Fat Free Butter 2.9oz bag (regular size bag, not the mini or 100 cal pack)According to the bag, a serving size is 3 tbsp unpopped (7 cups popped) there are 2 servings per container which means the bag contains 6 tbsp of unpopped popcorn (14 popped)
Nutritional information for 6tbsp unpopped:
240 calories
4 g of fat
8 g of Fiber
4 points
Now the bag gives the calorie count for 1 cup popped as 15 calories. If you multiply that by 14 (number of cups in the bag) you get 255 calories for the bag. This still gives you 4 points. So, no matter how you look at it the normal size bag (meaning not the mini bag) of Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop 94% Fat Free Butter is 4 points for the whole thing.
Here is the link:
So all of this time, I was counting the WHOLE bag as 2 points but unfortunately it's 4! Oh well...haha

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
Please let me know where you got your design. Many thanks

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
