Jolly Time 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn is a healthy alternative to most microwave popcorns, which have butter flavorings and high levels of saturated fat added to the product. Jolly Time’s 94% Fat Free microwave popcorn, in one-serving packages, helps to counter the high-fat aspect of many microwave popcorn products.
When microwave popcorn first popped onto the grocery store scene in the 1980s, it was a high-end, fairly expensive product that few consumers could purchase initially. The craze soon gained steam and as more and more consumers purchased microwaves, the popcorn market caught up. Soon microwave popcorn became a staple in office settings; the reek of burned microwave popcorn has become a stereotypical joke in corporate parodies such as the television series, “The Office.”
Most families enjoy eating healthy snacks, and the Jolly Time 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn product helps to fit the bill. It has zero trans fat per serving, although consumers should know that manufacturers are permitted by FDA regulations to list a product as having “zero” trans fat if the amount of trans fat is under .5 grams. Therefore, a product could have as much as .49 grams of trans fat and still be labeled “zero” trans fat. However, eating a microwave popcorn product with even the label of zero trans fat is better than having a similar product that has actual, listed grams of trans fat in it.
Jolly Time 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn comes in the traditional larger size, with about eight to nine cups of popcorn per bag, and the newer “single serving” bag, which contains approximately three cups of popcorn per serving. When microwaving the larger bag, a microwave time of two minutes and thirty seconds, in most machines with a high setting, should produce a good, properly cooked bag. For the single serving bags, a cooking time of one minute, forty second typically produces a properly cooked bag.
Jolly Time 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn makes a great snack for kids in lunch boxes as well as a yummy snack at home or in the office. Childhood obesity is an epidemic in the United States, and there’s a tremendous need for healthy snacks for kids; this popcorn fits the bill.
The retail price on this popcorn varies, although in most stores a ten-pack of the single serving size will run around $4.79 and a three pack of the larger bags will cost about $2.49. Whether your family is searching for something tasty or something healthy, Jolly Time 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn can satisfy both needs, has zero trans fat, is convenient to cook, and just tastes great while snacking in front of your favorite movie.
