I love popcorn. Recently, I spotted a box of Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn in the snack section of my local Dollar Tree store. The price was right. I decided to buy it, try it out and write an unbiased product review all about my experience. Here is what I discovered!
I am a big fan of Pop Weaver extra butter microwave popcorn, so when I came across the light butter version of this snack, I could not wait to try it. I hoped that it would be as good. One box of Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn has four individual bags in it. For only one dollar, that is a great popcorn deal, in my opinion. A very budget friendly snack, for sure. Since one bag can serve two people, that is a nice amount of popcorn to get for the low price. It averages out to a quarter a bag. Fabulous!
Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn has sixty percent less fat than regular butter popcorn. At only twenty calories a serving, this snack is a treat for dieters. Low cal and low fat? Yep, I liked all of that. The preparation of this light butter popcorn is easy and fast. Since it is made for microwave cooking, it takes no time at all to pop. I only had to place the bag in my microwave and cook on high for a few minutes. This popcorn smelled really good! It did pop evenly and almost all of the kernels popped.
When I tasted Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn, it was average. This was a disappointment for me since the extra butter version of this product is so very tasty. The light butter version does have a trace of butter and a decent flavor but, it lacks the full fresh popcorn taste of the extra butter popcorn. Still, for a dollar, this snack is worth the money. It will do. The box states that this popcorn has a new and improved butter flavor. Well, it needs more improvement, in my opinion. It has an artificial slight butter taste that is not that great. Oh well. They all can’t be winners.
I rate Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn three stars out of five stars. I probably will not buy it again but, I will be a forever fan of the Pop Weaver extra butter popcorn. It is great! At least the light butter version is lower in fat and calories. That is always good but, flavor is important to me, also. There are a lot of better tasting light butter microwave popcorn brands on the market. The problem is, they all cost more. So, I have to appreciate the fantastically low price of this snack.
One serving of Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn has 20 calories. Only 5 of those calories come from fat. One serving has 1 gram of total fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 0 grams of monounsaturated fat, 30 mg’s of sodium, 3 grams of total carbs, less than 1 gram of dietary fiber and 0 grams of protein. That is pretty darn good for light butter popcorn, I must admit. Dieters can appreciate this snack. And enjoy it. If they are not too picky about the slightly artificial butter flavor. I was, unfortunately.
I did enjoy trying Pop Weaver Light Butter Microwave Popcorn and writing this product review all about my experience with it. I like other Pop Weaver products very much, this is just not one of my favorites. For more information, you can visit the popweaver.com web site. If a little more work is done on the butter flavor, this popcorn could be a winner!
