Rich, buttery popcorn always reminds me of the drive-in theater. (Oops, I guess I just gave away my age!) Big, brown grocery bag filled with freshly popped popcorn and dotted on the outside with the little greasy spots of buttery, deliciousness. Well, the drive-in is gone and sadly I no longer douse my popcorn in butter (wasn’t it great being a kid, when you didn’t care about things like that?) But thankfully, I still get to indulge in rich, tasty, fluffy popcorn. Starbucks now offers two popcorn flavors at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada.
If you are like me and you love butter…you are in for a treat with the Classic Butter flavor and if you like things a little bit on the spicy side, Salt and Pepper flavor will be for you! Both varieties are made with all natural ingredients (including, real butter!), and both have only 150 calories and 8 grams of fat, which is about 20% less than your average bag of chips. Each batch of our popcorn is hand popped in kettles and the Salt and Pepper variety is made exclusively for Starbucks! Also, in case you didn’t know this…corn is a grain, not a vegetable, so this snack is 100% whole grain and provides 3g of fiber per serving.
So it is possible to indulge your “flavor is king and calories shouldn’t count” side while still taking care of your, “responsible, I don’t get to eat popcorn out of the big brown bag anymore because that wouldn’t be prudent” side too. I guess life is pretty good…who knew?
