I do not know if you are a fan of microwave popcorn, but the one they are now selling here shows an unpopped/popped calorie count on the package. We just downgraded the brand, and this generic brand has less oil, hence less fat calories, but there goes the taste.
The label states a serving is 3 tbsp unpopped and 1 cup popped. The label shows the calorie packaged/popped as 150/40 and the fat calories as 80/20.
One might ask where the calories go, others might say that your microwave removes all the bad stuff, or my personal favorite around here is "Do not ask questions in the Big House
The rest of the breakdown shows the unpopped grams, unpopped percent, and the popped percent. So I guess it is up to the consumer to figure the popped grams:
Total Fat / 9 g. / 14% / 3%
Saturated / 1 g. / 6% / 1%
Cholesterol / 0 g. / 0% / 0%
I guess a bunch of the oil remains in the bag, so one better be careful not to eat the bag for roughage, and not lick the fingers.
Well I wolfed down the bowl of mackerel and rice and now I am sort of stuffed. Each can of mackerel is 130 calories with 35 of them from fat. I had less than that since I drained the oil off the first can. The rice is 140 calories per serving with four servings per bag, so I average 315 calories per bowl plus the 130 for the fish, and we have a nice, healthy meal.
But I do miss the candy!
