PC Organics Popcorn

February 21st, 2009 by Potato

Continuing with my efforts to get free food from President’s Choice PC Points, I tried PC Organics microwave popcorn, the butter-flavoured variety. It was actually pretty tasty, however when looking at the nutritional information on the side after getting it home I saw that it had 10 grams of fat per serving (50 g). That’s a crazy amount of fat! Sure, it didn’t have any of the weird chemicals associated with other microwave popcorn (just lots of palm oil and butter flavour), but I typically associate popcorn with the lighter side of the salty snack spectrum, but that’s right up there with chips and nachos bad! And I’d rather have the nachos all else being equal, since they’re less hazardous to my gums. Just another reminder that organic does not equal healthy.
