The mini bags of popping corn are quite compact, but the amount of popcorn you get still makes a pretty substantial snack. The characteristic sweet and salty taste of kettle corn shines through, and though the sweetness is from Splenda, the aftertaste is barely noticeable. To add to the lightness of this popcorn, the salt content isn't overwhelming, and it's 94% fat free as well.

A 1.2 ounce mini bag of Jolly Time 100 Calorie Healthy Pop Kettle Corn makes 4 cups of popped kettle corn. Though the front of the box claims that one bag has 100 calories, the nutrition facts say that it has 90 calories.

Jolly Time 100 Calorie Healthy Pop Popcorn Minis Review

Jolly Time Healthy Pop Popcorn MinisLet me just get this out there: I love popcorn. I love it so much that an ex-boyfriend bought me my own popcorn popper for Christmas one year. It's the perfect snacking food for when I'm studying, and it's even considered a whole grain. Its healthy profile is dependent on choosing a low-fat, not overly-buttered kind, though, which is why I love Jolly Time 100 Calorie Healthy Pop Popcorn Minis.

I have both a sweet tooth and a salty tooth, so my favorite incarnation of this popped goodness is the Kettle Corn flavor, however, the Butter flavor is delicious as well. Each bag pops up to a satisfying 4 cups, all for just 100 calories. With only 2 grams of fat, this is something you can indulge in guilt-free, and the 3 grams of protein and 8-9 grams of fiber (a full 1/3rd of the daily recommendations) make this a certifiably healthy option. Sodium is also kept in check, with only 210-280 mg (9-12% of RDA depending on flavor) per bag.
