*I use .33 fat grams as if it is less than .5 grams the FDA regulations indicate it can be listed as zero.

#I use .5 fiber grams as if it is less than 1 gram the FDA regulations indicate it can be listed as <1 gram.

As of 2-3-01 the points have been updated for ORVILLE REDDENBACHER, POP SECRET and JOLLY TIME.

I will have to do further research on HEALTHY CHOICE and ACTII.

THANK YOU LISSA!

Land O Lakes Light Butter Flavor; Snack Size Bag
(1 bag yields 6 cups popped @ 120 cal/6g fat/3g fiber)
1-2-3 Success/The 10% Difference: 2 Points
Winning Points: 2 Points

As for the fiber, it states that it contains less than 1g per 1 cup popped. I counted it as .5g per cup which gives 3g fiber per bag.

This actually calculates out to 2.3 points per bag using Dotti's calculator set to "Exact Points" mode. If you set it to "Half Points" mode, it comes out to 2.5 points. Using the "Whole Points" mode gives the 2 points.

I want to add something. PopSecret has come out with 100 Calorie Pack Popcorn (and their labeling is very easy to read) so the whole package of it is 2 points and it is a 'cute' snack size and tastes better than Orville's in my opinion.

Black Jewell (Microwave)
Serving Size 3 tbsp. unpopped
Calories 150
Fiber 4 grams
Fat 7 grams

This makes about 4 cups popped

1 cup popped = 40 calories
% Daily Value
3% Fat
4% Fiber

Hope this helps! Thank you!

Question mini bags..94% FF butter

Ugh! Why does popcorn have to be so diffcult to calculate!
I bought ACT II mini bags 94% FF butter 1.2 oz bags.

**Serving Size 2 Tbsp (35g) unpopped (makes about 6 cups popped)
** Servings per Bag: 1
** Servings per Package: 12

**************** Unpopped:******1 cup popped:
Calories:_____________110______________15
Total Fat (2g):________3%______________0%
Dietary Fiber (4g):_____16%_____________ 0%

I feel totally stupied when I look at the nutrition facts about popcorn... I hope someone can help me...its driving me nuts!!! I would like to know how many points for 1 mini bag.

Thanks!!!
Amy

I just bought the OR 94% snack size and it's 100 cal; 2 fat; 4 fiber. That comes to 1 point on my WW calculator. Why are you saying they are 2?

Because after the popping they come out to much less fiber.

I thought that WW magazine had ads for the Jolly Time healthy Pop that had a little cartoon lady on it, and the ad said only 2 points for the whole bag? I usually eat the whole bag and count it as 2 and spray it with butter flavor Pam cooking spray. Maybe 5-7 seconds worth with a few shakes in between. I sometimes re-spray the bottom part if it needs it for another 4-5 seconds. I count this as 3 points. I know that amount of spray has to be counted, so that is why I count the bag as 3.

I have this probably 4 evenings out of the week, and I'm still losing. Any advice if this is OK, or if I should count it as more?

Thanks,

Kim

I guess I am confused too because my WW leader said that any bag of 94%ff popcorn was figured to only 2 points because of all of the unpopped kernels that had to be counted out of the totals. All of us at our WW meetings only count that as 2 for a large bag.

I wish ACT II would make low fat Kettle Korn in the mini bags, I love ACT II Kettle Corn but I know it is high, high in points, SIGH. I don't like Orville's 94% FF version.

Thanks, I'm going to have to look for that one. I love the 100 Calorie line, so easy.

What about Pret a Manger Honey popcorn? It says on the website that the salt one is 2.5 per bag but this one isn't stated.
