Boston’s Lite Popcorn comes in a red, blue and yellow package with a cute illustration of an old-fashioned Boston’s popcorn cart on the front.
Their slogan is “Boston’s The Best You’ve Ever Tasted.”
But was it really the best I’ve ever tasted?
While that might be stretching it a bit, I do agree it’s the best tasting low calorie and low fat popcorn I’ve had in a while.
All natural, the Boston’s Lite Popcorn says it contains 50 percent less fat compared to regular popcorn.
In terms of health, popcorn is a great whole grain that provides fiber and fills you up. You can eat a lot of popcorn without doing damage to your diet. For those on a diet who want to mix it up a bit, try mixing together cinnamon and Truvia. Then spray a little olive oil cooking spray on to the Lite Popcorn and sprinkle with the cinnamon and “sugar” mixture. Cinnamon is also a great spice for people who want to lose weight since it helps regular blood sugar, according to experts.
The low-fat popcorn is one of the best healthy after-school snack for children. I like to eat it while watching television.
The kernels of popcorn are light and fluffy. The Boston’s Lite Popcorn package contains 6.5 ounces or 184 grams. The popcorn taste like the old-fashioned kind that you get at carnivals or at the movie theater, but without all the calories.
It has no trans fats and no hydrogenated oils or preseratives in the low-fat popcorn.
Experts recommend people get at least 48 grams of whole grains each day and the popcorn contains 16 whole grams. The calories in popcorn is so low you can eat a lot.
