Normally I would never review a specialty low-calorie product. Let’s just say it is not my interest or my passion. But! Popcorn Indiana Fit Popcorn came with another popcorn product I will be reviewing soon so woot for me!
OK, the whole gluten-free marketing makes me laugh considering popcorn is naturally gluten-free. This kind of marketing makes me roll my eyes. Who adds gluten to popcorn?
I will admit that having such a low caloric count intrigued me. Would it impact the flavour of the popcorn? Also, would I be impressed with something just flavoured with sea salt?
The hardest part about product testing Fit Popcorn is apparently you need to be The Hulk to get the bag open. I gave up and got a pair of scissors and then over-zealously opened the bag, expecting similar resistance. Only to have popcorn go everywhere and having the bag break into two pieces. OK, that made me feel like The Hulk.
Reg and I had a gift card for the holidays and we came home with a couple of great movies. One was Kiki’s Delivery Service, a movie we both REALLY wanted to see. It was a week night and normally I do not do treats late at night but this was a special circumstance.
After the whole opening-the-bag debacle I poured a small bowl for us to enjoy with the movie. Which disappeared. Super fast! And I could not stop eating it.
This is a beautiful popcorn and I can not believe it is made with just canola oil, popcorn and sea salt. What a mid-week treat and OMG, the popcorn was almost as good as the movie. It had great crunch, tons of flavour and tasted very, very fresh.
Honestly, you can taste the love. And it is low calorie, I just can’t believe that.
I thought I was going to be bored and unimpressed but the opposite occurred. We got to have the best night “indulging” in popcorn and a movie with zero work, other than opening that damn bag. OK, that bag made me mad and I did not like the gluten-free marketing so I have to deduct a little for those issues…
I give this product four and a half out of five wooden spoons.
Fit Popcorn can be found at the following stores in Canada: Sobeys, Loblaws, A&P, Remarks Farm, Metro, Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart and several Independent grocery stores.
