Dietitian's Top Pick: Skinny Pop Popcorn


You may have a hard time finding today's Dietitian's Top Pick in your favorite Market Street. Why? Because our guests have already found this oh-so-yummy popcorn on our shelves and we can't keep it in stock.

Skinny Pop popcorn is our Dietitian's Top Pick because among salty snacks it has one of the highest NuVal scores. It also has a very simple ingredient list. Take a look:

Ingredients: All natural popcorn, sunflower oil and salt.

It also has a pretty great nutrition profile. We often will sample this (or similar) popcorn on our diabetes tours because you can have 3 1/2 cups of popcorn for only 15grams of carbs (and 3g of it is fiber!). It also earns a gold start for it's low sodium and fat content.

Serving size: 3.5 cup
Calories: 135
Total Fat: 8g
Saturated Fat: 1g
Trans Fat: 0g

Sodium: 90 mg
Total Carbohydrate: 15g
Dietary Fiber: 3g

This popcorn makes for a great movie night snack or snack for kids (lunchbox or after school snack). So let this be a fair warning, if you see Skinny Pop in our stores you better grab it because it may not be there when you return!

Happy snacking!
