Thread: Popcorn points

    Default Popcorn points

    I bought the Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop 94 percent fat free butter popcorn. I am not sure about the points. IT's the 3 oz bags. I would appreciate the help.
    Thank you

    I've been eating Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop! 94% Fat Free Kettle Korn 100 calorie snack bags which produces about 6 cups. It's only 1 point!

    That's what I was going to say, Steph. The 100 calorie popcorns I've gotten are all 2 points per bag.

    According to WW online,

    O.R 94% Fat Free Smart pop Kettle Corn is 1 pt for 7 cups but 3.5 for the entire bag.

    Butter flavor is 2 pts per 1-7 3/4 cup serving.

    94% Movie Butter is 2 pts per 1-6 cup serving

    ETA: Snack size are 2 pts.. the above are for full size bags.

    Hmmm, I thought the snack size bags were 1 point because of the fiber in them.

    I just ran the OR Smart Pop Mini Bags through my WW Points Calculator and it reads out as follows:



    POINTS calculators
    Food POINTS calculator
    Search our database for POINTS values of more than 20,000 foods. Or calculate a POINTS value for a new food using the calories, fat and fiber information found on the Nutrition Facts label of most food packages.

    enter values from the

    No problema y'all! I think that WW used the unpopped information, rather than the popped info.

    I actually measured my popcorn from the microwave bag the other day and it only popped about 10 cups, so I am going to count it as 2 for the entire regular sized bag of 94% FF popcorn.
