Microwave popcorn is the perfect snack for campouts or late-night movie marathons. This month, we salute the kernel with our four picks:
Smart Balance Smart n’ Healthy
$3.39/four 3-oz bags
Indulge without busting your diet: This crispy corn packs just 120 calories per 5-cup serving—perfect for guilt-free munching in front of the tube.
Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter
$3.49/four 1.5-oz bags
One bite of this rich, buttery popcorn and you’ll think you’re at the cineplex. Spice it up Indian-style with a dash of curry powder, turmeric, and cumin.
Newman’s Own 94% Fat Free Butter
$3.19/three 3-oz bags
Here’s another one that’s easy to dress up—its natural taste goes well with peanuts and a drizzle of warm caramel sauce. (And the proceeds go to charity!)
Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter
$2.99/three 3-oz bags
Toss these big, buttery kernels with raisins and mini pretzels for a quick after-school treat. Or grab a handful yourself for a hit of fiber to fight the 3 p.m. blahs.
Jazz up movie night with these addicting popcorn recipes!
