Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop Popcorn Giveaway!

by Mama Chocolate on May 28, 2012

Our family loves popcorn at almost any time of the day, and we’ve been making it a regular option as a snack lately.

While I prefer to make popcorn from scratch usually to avoid additional preservatives and artificial flavorings in our diets, sometimes the convenience and deliciousness of microwave popcorn can’t be beat.

It’s still a far superior alternative to some of the other things that we are tempted to munch on. John loves Nacho Doritos, (ick!) and I am often caught spoon-in-hand over a jar of Nutella.

With the SmartPop Healthy Snacking Challenge, we have done much better at avoiding sugary junk food and I’m inspired to keep it up, sticking with snacks like popcorn that won’t spike our blood sugar and leave us with a hangover a few hours later or fill us with nasty stuff like MSG, (which is in many chip flavorings!)

Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn comes in all kinds of varieties, including the SmartPop flavors, made with reduced fat, (94% fat-free!) and even their Natural Popcorn, which is free of added flavors, colors, or preservatives!

Until doing research for this campaign, I had no idea that they had Natural varieties, so I can’t wait to look into them and start enjoying my microwave popcorn on a more regular basis as we continue to say goodbye to artificial foods! Woot!

My blogging sister, enjoying popcorn an easy and tidy snack, even for the couch!

With Orville Redenbacher’s variety of popcorn flavors, there is sure to be something to satisfy the cravings of everyone in your family.

Popcorn is 100% whole grain, a great source of fiber, and free of trans fats, making it an ideal snack option for those mid-afternoon munchies or during movie night!

I love that popcorn is a healthy snack that both Katie and Victoria get excited about. Sometimes they’ll be excited about fruit or veggies for a snack, (which is great!) but they are always excited when I suggest popcorn and I have no trouble getting them to actually eat it once it’s made.

The pop-up bowls have been great, especially with the kids. Regular microwave popcorn bags can be so messy, pulling your hand in and out, especially if it’s a buttery variety, and it’s always exciting, trying to keep greasy little toddler hands off the furniture.

The “bowls” made it much easier and tidier for them to eat, (although Mama liberally spread popcorn across the kitchen a few times before she finally figured out how to open the bowls properly. *ahem*)

I don’t know if I’d say it’s clean. Three little kids have a tendency to make everything messy.

My kids love that it’s fun to watch pop and makes a pretty fun sound (we always sing the song, “The Popcorn in the Popper” while it’s popping) and of course it tastes very yummy. I love that it’s whole grain and is a healthier than many other snack choices down the snack aisle at the grocery store.

I like that it’s so much healthier than some of my other snacks (*cough*lotsofchocolate*cough*). It’s so easy to make, and the whole family loves it. Even if we make popcorn a few times a week, the kids always act like it’s such a treat!

I love the taste of popcorn. Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop can help me snack healthier because I can reach for that rather that the junk food I normally do when I crave a snack.
