Can we get Healthier Movie Theater Pop-Corn Please?

Something I didn't know but just learned.   The new law mandating that chain restaurants post calorie counts will apply to movie theaters concession stands.  As you can imagine, movie theaters are not happy about this, and are fighting the new law.

Could it be that when people start seeing that an average sized bag of movie theater popcorn with butter contains 1,480 calories that they'll think twice about ordering it?   I know I did when I first learned the facts. 

I've blogged about the horrors of movie theater popcorn before, and I'm excited by this rule for one reason.  I stopped buying popcorn in movies because its such a caloric disaster.  I hope and pray that the new rule will lead to movie theaters offering a healthier, lower calorie, popcorn alternative for those of us who want to watch our weight.  

I miss munching on a bag of popcorn at the movies, and if they would just offer an alternative, I can go back to happily tossing back the  kernels in the dark.
