Movie Popcorn

I went to the movies last night, to see Rise of the Planets of the Apes. Since I’m trying to lose weight, I was trying to be careful of the snacks I order there. I figured popcorn was the healthiest thing to get (regular not caramel). And so when I was waiting in line, I googled the calories in movie popcorn. I was shocked when I saw the numbers [link].

Movie popcorn is loaded withy more calories and fat than any McDonald’s meal. A large no-butter has 1,160 calories and 77 grams of fat!! That’s like eating a McD’s quarter pounder (with cheese) AND a Big Mac!!

The main reason why this popcorn is so loaded with fat and calories is because it’s popped in oil rather than air, that soaks everything with oil. Air popped popcorn, on the other hand, has only 30 calories and less than half a gram of fat per cup [link].

Next time I go to the movies, I’m sneaking in my own popcorn.

      Lol, I did apologize for that… But you can’t fight the Garrett ;)

      Back to being serious. I wouldn’t really mind the extra calories on Garrett’s popcorn, because you can actually taste and smell the added flavors; thus appreciate the higher calorie\fat count. They at least add deliciousness and greatness to the taste of their popcorn.

      There’s no excuse for movie popcorn being this fattening. I honestly thought it was a healthy snack, air popped popcorn is well known for being a low fat high fiber snack. I just assumed movie popcorn had the same nutritional values.
