Weaver Gold™ Microwave Popcorn:
Weaver Popcorn Company, Inc., has introduced the first microwave popcorn to be made with olive oil, making it significantly lower in saturated fat, but even better tasting. New Weaver Gold™ microwave popcorn contains whole grains and antioxidants, and provides the health benefits of olive oil. Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and helps to protect against heart disease by controlling LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels and raising HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.
Weaver Gold microwave popcorn comes in two great-tasting flavors: Movie Theater Butter and Parmesan with Italian Herbs & Garlic.
Availability: Movie Theater Butter flavor Weaver Gold microwave popcorn is available in 6-bag boxes; and Parmesan with Italian Herbs & Garlic flavor Weaver Gold microwave popcorn is available in 4-bag boxes at mass market retailers nationwide, and also online at Amazon.com. Weaver Popcorn expects to introduce Weaver Gold microwave popcorn made with olive oil in Light Butter and Classic Butter flavors in the near future.My Take:
I think I found my new favorite microwave popcorn. The Parmesan with Italian Herbs & Garlic smells like heaven in the microwave. My daughter and I shared the first bag, and then we had to go back and make a second bag because it went so fast. The next time I made sure to pop a bag when no one was home so I got to devour it all myself. It is that good trust me! The Movie Theater Butter was good too, not as greasy as the stuff you actually get at the movies and it has 50% LESS saturated fat than other leading brands of Movie Theater Butter popcorn. We've been substituting olive oil for other oils in meals to help with the fat intake in our house since we are trying to slim down and feel better so this is a great way to have a yummy and healthy snack. See for yourself in the chart below the difference in popcorn oils. (You can click the image to make it larger to see it better.)
