Cool One more popcorn question!!!

Hello chicks!!!
I know that popcorn was topic in many threads here, at 3FC, but I have a question about Walmart popcorn...

After analyzing the information that comes on the packages I ask you:

Can it be true that 30g of popped popcorn (whole bag) has only 20 calorie? And a Caramel Glazed flavor???

And how can the difference in unpopped and popped popcorn exist between the Caramel Glazed and light butter flavors?
Shouldn’t it be the same amount on both, since the size of the grains are the same???

Am I missing something here??
Please help me understand it!!!

here are the facts from the package:

Nutrition Facts:

Serving Size 28 g

Amount Per Serving
2 Tbsp Unpopped: 120
1 Cup Popped: 20

Pop Weaver: Caramel Glazed Popcorn

Nutrition Facts:

Serving Size 30 g

Amount Per Serving
2 Tbsp Unpopped: 130
5 Cups Popped: 20

Pop Weaver: Kettle Corn Popcorn

Nutrition Facts:

Serving Size 31 g

Amount Per Serving
2 Tbsp Unpopped: 140
5 Cups Popped: 20

Anyway you look at it, thin comes out ahead!"

How many servings per bag are there - usually it'll say 15 or something - like 15 cups of popcorn are in the popped bag...not just one cup.

shows the 20 calories for one cup, you just need to multiply that by the number of cups it has in the popped bag.

So close ... now so far!
