    Talking Shocker of the week: Movie Popcorn Has Lots of Calories, and If you Add Butter You Add Calories

    Thank God we have the New York Times to inform us of this stuff... Actually, I assumed the large tub had MORE calories. Now I feel better about the butter & refills.

    Popcorn’s Dark Secret

    By KAREN BARROW
    Sitting in a dark movie theater with your friends and a tub of buttery popcorn sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday night ...

    A review of the nutritional contents of movie-theater popcorn reveals an alarming amount of fat, salt and calories...

    A large tub of popcorn at Regal Cinemas, for example, holds 20 cups of popcorn and has 1,200 calories, 980 milligrams of sodium and 60 grams of saturated fat. Adding just a tablespoon of butter adds 130 calories...

    One way to make your popcorn healthier? Ask the theater to pop a portion without salt. Two of the movie theaters that had their popcorn tested said they would oblige such a request.

    Alas, there are some people who don't have to worry about calories. Myself being one.

    Maybe you need to add popcorn to your tag line, TXCharlie.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
