What was discovered in a bat cave in New Mexico that dates back 5,500 years? What do Americans consume 17 billion quarts each year of? What food is so versatile it can be used in pudding, candy, soup, salad, and as an entrée?
The answer to all these questions is the same: popcorn!
With everyone health- and diet-conscious these days, popcorn is one of the few indulgences left that actually tastes good and is good for you. Popcorn is a whole grain that’s high in fibre and low in fat. And since it’s only 24 calories per cup, you can have five cups of air-popped popcorn for under 130 calories.
I know what you’re thinking: unless you add butter, popcorn tends to be a bit bland. Not anymore. With Kernel Season’s you can jazz up that ordinary popcorn into a tantalizing, tasty treat. Made from all natural ingredients and real cheese, Kernel Season’s popcorn comes in a variety of flavours like White Cheddar, Butter, Nacho Cheddar, Parmesan and Garlic, Ranch, Sour Cream and Onion, Salt, Caramel, Kettle Corn, and Jalapeno. Plus, Kernel Season’s also has a new all-natural, butter-flavoured popcorn spritzer. This zero- calorie topping is made from a blend of canola, sunflower, and corn oils. The only difference between this and the movie theatre topping is with Kernel Season’s Spritzer there’s zero fat and zero guilt.
In addition, Kernel Season’s is so good that over 20,000 movie theatres in the United States are offering it. And if you want to get movie night at home really “popping,” you can find Kernel Season’s products at more than 18,000 grocery stores across America, as well as at Walmart, Target, Kmart, and Blockbuster Video.
