Could We Please Get Healthier Movie Snacks?

I'd be happy if they just offered air-popped pop-corn instead of the calorie-laden, chemical filled stuff they currently sell:

As I blogged here: a medium movie theatre pop-corn has 1,200 calories BEFORE you add the butter. That's because of what they pop the corn in. It's a heavy oil laden with fat and chemicals. If they just brought in some air poppers, they can offer a healthier alternative to those of us who care.


  1. That explains why I feel so horrible after eating the popcorn at the theatre. You would have thought I would have learned my lesson the first time - but NO - I had to eat some again on Saturday and felt horrible for hours and hours later. Never again... :)

  2. You're right... seems they're leaving a lot of money on the table by not recognizing that a lot of folks are turned off by "movie theater" popcorn.
