Super Bowl snackers: Which snack is most nutritious?

The big game is in Detroit this weekend and there's snacks aplenty.  Which one(s) do you pick?

In my e-newsletter from the Calorie King, I got this question and an astounding answer:

  • It's game time and you're at a friend's place in front of the TV and a pile of snacks.  Which snack choice has the least calories?
  1. 2 cups of buttered popcorn
  2. 3 handfuls of peanuts
  3. 4 handfuls of Frito's corn chips with salsa
  4. 15 baby carrots with Kraft French Onion dip

The answer, believe it or not, is microwaved popcorn (such as Act II); 2 cups contains only 70 calories; 85 for the carrots and dip, 250 for the peanuts and 330 for the corn chips and salsa.  Hmm...
