When I was first informed about this website in the middle of October, I was instantly intrigued. After graduating college in 2009 and waitressing for a good year and half-two years while hitting the pavement everyday looking for what my friends and I would refer to as a “big girl job” I didn’t really worry about what I was consuming because I would run around a restaurant 5 days a week, 5-9 hours a day and it wasn’t really a huge concern. However, once I got my first “big girl job” in October, I found myself wanting to snack because I was bored sitting at my desk.
A good friend of mine sent me this link and I was instantly addicted. Now when I go shopping every two weeks for snacks, soup, Diet Coke, and cat food for my fatty cat (who needs a skinnycat blog), I tend to look for low-calorie goodness or ways I can make my classic choices a little bit lighter.
While I was in my hometown of Poughquag I ventured into a little deli which housed a shelf full of gluten-free items. On that shelf I stopped when I got to a product called PopCorners. “The New Shape Of Popcorn,” the catchy phrase underneath the title, states that they take a new shape. These awesome little triangles are delicious and come in 5 flavors: sea salt, white cheddar, kettle corn, cheesy jalapeno, and butter. I picked up a sandwich and a bag of the butter flavored PopCorners and set out for my next doctor’s appointment. To my amazment these “chips” taste just like a bag full of movie theater butter popcorn…yumm…cannot beat that!
The best part is, they are only 120 calories and 3.5 grams of fat for 1 ounce, or 28 grams of these “chips” and they fill you right up! Plus, you have the crunch of a real chip and the softness of popcorn so it is like you are eating a surprise within each different bite! My gluten-free co-worker has found my stash and cleaned me out! Guess I will be on the hunt for some more PopCorners! This time, I think I will try the white cheddar ones considering I LOVE white cheddar popcorn; however, I do not love the 10 grams of fat that are in a lunch sized bag…
So to all my fellow Skinnyoffice-rs out there, give ’em a try and let me know what you think!
Happy New Year to everyone!
