Congratulations Becky and Julie!
Pop Weaver has recently launched the first microwave popcorn made with canola oil. The new and improved formulation of the popcorn enhances the rich, buttery taste that Pop Weaver is known for, and is lower in calories, total fat, saturated fat and sodium, while also providing Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids. The fatty acids help to protect against coronary heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. The popcorn is a good source of whole grains and new studies reveal that popped popcorn provides more antioxidants than any other snack food!
"With most 'healthy' snacks, you typically have to give up flavor," said Weaver. "But our new microwave popcorn really is the best of all worlds. Not only does it taste great, but it is better for you."
After comparing the nutritional facts of the Pop Weaver Extra butter compared to Orville Redenbacher's Movie Theater butter popcorn I will be switching to that for the others that love that buttery flavor! There is a significant difference in nutritional value in those. The Pop Weaver extra butter has 260calories, 11grams fat, and 470mg sodium compared to Orville Redenbacher's Movie theatre butter that has 350 calories, 25grams fat and 500mg sodium. That is a big difference in fat and calories! While my thinner husband and stepdaughters may not need diet foods, they definitely could switch to a brand with half the fat!
All flavors of Pop Weaver microwave popcorn made with canola oil are available nationwide at mass retailers in 24 pack or 8 pack boxes. For more information you can visit http://www.popweaver.com/ .
