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?
- 2 cups of buttered popcorn
- 3 handfuls of peanuts
- 4 handfuls of Frito's corn chips with salsa
- 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...
