I haven’t found very many reasons to go out to the movies of late. The last time we went, there were only three of us in the theater and the price, not to mention the flavor, of the popcorn was shocking.

Movie theater popcorn is the worst.  The Center for Science in the Public Interest revealed that a medium tub at a typical theater has 1,200 calories and 60 grams of saturated fat, three times our daily allotment. Chomping through an entire container is the caloric equivalent of eating three McDonald’s Quarter Pounders, before factoring in the extra fat and calories from the greasy topping.

Really, I don’t know why anyone with a large screen HD TV would choose to go out. With a little patience the desired films quickly show up DVD with lots of options for their retrieval on the home screen along with comfortable pjs, hand popped popcorn plus the stop/start button for convenience bathroom breaks.

100% whole grain Popcorn will never be a replacement for produce, which is brimming with essential nutrients and antioxidants not found in grains, but it’s still a terrific, low-cal high-fiber snack.

I haven’t tried it (Steve makes the best batch of popcorn this side of the Atlantic- topped with nutritional yeast, chili powder and a dash of coarse sea salt) but I’ve seen several mentions of organic Quinn Popcorn, no GMO ingredients, no preservatives, and chemical free in compostable bags in culinary flavors like Parmesan & Rosemary and Vermont Maple & Sea Salt.
