I spotted this BoomChickaPop Lightly Sweet Popcorn at my local grocery store in the “healthy junk food” section of the market. I’m not much of a fan of plain ole popcorn (particularly if it’s coming out of a bag), I typically prefer white cheddar … so the lightly sweet perked my interest. Kettle Corn isn’t my favorite, but I figured lightly sweetened would be interesting – and I can honestly say, it was.
The great part of the Boom Chicka Pop is that it’s only 37 calories per cup of popcorn and a serving consists of 3 ¼ cups for 120 calories = 3 Points Plus.
The popcorn is nice and crunchy with a hint of slight sweetness on them. It reminds me of a very mildly sweetened caramel corn (it has that slicker feel and texture to the popcorn). It’s a healthier alternative to popcorn – guilt free, organic and just “naturally simple” as the manufacturer describes. There are no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners/flavors, no preservatives and there are no trans fats in the product.
The one thing I will say is that there were a LOT of popcorn kernels and popcorn shells in the bottom of the bag. Like the last probably ½ cup had to be thrown out because it was just loaded with kernels and hard shelled popcorn (unpopped). But nonetheless, that aside, this was delicious and I’ll definitely repurchase.
Have you tried either of the BoomChickaPop popcorns?
