    I don't recall the exact points offhand, but the Redenbacher smart pop kettle corn is MUCH lower than 4 pts for 4 cups. I would imagine the JollyTime would be pretty similar, so if you can find the pts info for Orville you could use that.

    Amanda,

    Do you have the box right there with you? If so, tell me the calories, fat and fiber for a popped bag and I can give you the points.

    I found the points formula on the web a few days ago and I made a little Excel spreadsheet for it, so if you give me the numbers I can calculate it for you.
    Sincerely,

    My WW leader told our group that ANY microwave popcorn, and she especially mentioned Jolly Time, that said 94% fat free is 2 points for the WHOLE bag. Has anyone else heard this? I hope I'm right b/c I've been eating a lot of those bags and always counting them as 2 points. BTW, it's a very filling and satisfying snack.

    Only 2.5 if you figure points per serving then multiply by number of servings you eat FOR EVERYTHING! If you are one who figures total cal/fat/fiber then it is 4 for most 94%micro popcorns. I believe the Jolly Time 94% Kettle Corn sweetened with splenda is 4 points per bag but I have not found it to add to my Popcorn Points List.

    Here is a tip on popping corn in microwave:

    1) first make sure it is fresh (I store mine in the refrige)
    2) heat 1 cup of water to the boiling point in your microwave

    Okay-I have Orville Redenbacher 94% fat free Kettle Korn right here. The trouble is the nutrition label says 1 serving is about 7 cups popped and there are 2 servings per bag. This is nonsense-I just popped a bag to the near burning point (not many "old maids") and I got 9 cups of product-8 cups of which was edible. So according to the small print on the label for popped product, a bag is, in reality, 180 calories-20 calories a cup for 9 cups-0 fat, and less than 1 gram of dietary fiber per cup which, being conservative, is 4 points for the bag. Darn!

    Here is the nutrition info:

    serving size: 2 tbsp (makes 4 cups popped)
    Servings per bag: 2.5 (about 10 cups popped)

    calories 100 25 (1 cup popped)
    fat 2
    fiber 6

    Thanks for your help!

    Amanda-

    Check the fine print under the nutrition info-the fat and fiber counts might be for the UNPOPPED as it is with the Orville Redenbacher.
