Check out my review of Skinny Pop Popcorn, its health benefits, and why you should be eating it.

Skinny Pop Popcorn is a low-calorie, all natural snack, that is great for the whole family. I'm going to begin this article by sharing some general information on popcorn and then about my favorite, Skinny Pop Popcorn.

Just to make it clear, I do not work for Skinny Pop Popcorn, or own any part of the company. I am just a happy customer who enjoys their popcorn.

Popcorn is a snack that most people have eaten at least once in their lives. It is a great seller at movie theaters and sporting events. It's inexpensive, filling, and easy to eat. Popcorn is also naturally low in calories and full of fiber.

Our local grocery stores can carry at least twenty kinds of popcorn with varieties like movie style butter, fat-free butter, kettle korn, cheese, lime & salt, and many more.

Unless you are checking the ingredients, you never know what is and isen't in your popcorn.Popcorn should be a healthy snack, but unfortunately it's not for many of us. Most microwave brands of popcorn contain excessive amounts of sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, and a disturbing chemical called Diacetyl.

Diacetyl is what creates the butter flavor in many brands of microwave popcorn. It has been found over the years to cause respiratory problems, Alzheimer plaque build-up, lung disease, rashes, stinging eyes, a burning sensation in your nose and throat, persistent cough, wheezing, & even permanent lung damage.

Did you know about the chemical Diacetyl?

My First Purchase Of Skinny Pop Popcorn

I first saw Skinny Pop Popcorn at our local Fresh Market store. I had heard about it on a health food blog and was hoping to find it locally. This blogger enjoyed the taste and was promoting it as a healthy snack alternative.

When I found Skinny Pop Popcorn in the store, I began to look over the bag. I liked the simple and few ingredients, it was also free of dairy and gluten, so I was slightly convinced that it could be a tasty and healthy snack. I bought the bag and headed home to try it.

As I opened the bag and started eating one piece, then two, now three. The popcorn was airy, crisp, lightly salted, but barely sweet, and just delicious! I couldn't believe how fresh tasting this popcorn was that came from a bag. After that day, I knew that this would be my favorite popcorn!


Yummy!

Where The Fat In Skinny Pop Comes From

The fat in Skinny Pop Popcorn comes from sunflower oil. Most of the fat in Sunflower Oil is unsaturated. Sunflower oil is a healthy fat that contains more Vitamin E than peanuts, olive, soybean, and corn oil. It's been stated that Vitamin E may strengthen your immune system and lower your risk for heart disease. Sunflower Oil is also cholesterol & sodium free.

      Great review... I've seen a lot of reviews about Skinny Pop and the whole "too much fat" thing concerned me because I just tried this today and I thought it was very delicious. When you clarified that it's "good fat" from sunflower oil, I was relieved. THANK YOU for clearing the air.
