Skinny Pop Butter Flavour Microwave Popcorn
During the icebreaker portion of a meeting at work a few years ago, we were each asked to say our name and what our favourite snack food was. I instinctively said “popcorn” and that was the first time I realized my favourite snack is popcorn, not chips like I had thought. (As you can tell, I’m in the salty camp…) There’s just something about popcorn. Not only is it buttery and salty goodness, but since it’s light and fluffy, you can eat a lot of it without feeling stuffed.
I tried Skinny Pop butter flavour microwave popcorn recently and got hooked. I know I posted previously about popcorn and mentioned that microwave popcorn is bad for you, but the Skinny Pop butter flavour microwave popcorn has no artificial colours or flavours, is dairy-free, gluten-free, and preservative-free. It also uses chemical-free lined bags so it seems to be healthier than most microwave popcorn. The fact that it is called “Skinny Pop” helps us think so too (smart advertising…).
Even though the instructions on the Skinny Pop Popcorn packaging say to microwave it for 1.5-2.5 min, I like to listen to the intervals between pops so I can get the most popped popcorn kernels without burning it (can’t waste the popcorn 😂). The popcorn is flavourful and doesn’t taste artificial or chemically, like other microwave popcorn. It is fresh, nice and buttery, and a bit salty, but I think it is part of the reason why it tastes so good. In the end, it’s all about moderation. We have to enjoy life too! That’s how I justify it to myself…
If you love popcorn as much as I do and feel like treating yourself, I would recommend trying Skinny Pop butter flavour microwave popcorn. If you don’t like it, you can give the rest of the bags to me. 😉
