Today is National Popcorn Day. You’ve probably heard before how it’s a low calorie “healthy snack”. This is mostly true if you eat it plain. Sure, popcorn is considered a low-calorie snack if it’s just a cup of plain, air-popped popcorn it only contains 31 calories. As a comparison a serving of potato chips is about 139 calories.
Now, if you start adding on all the good stuff… butter, salt, and other toppings that low cal goes right out the window. But it’s National Popcorn Day so go wild!
