LesserEvil All Natural Flavored Popcorn - Black & White

I have a confession to make--my food tastes aren't always as "pure" as I'd like everyone to believe. The truth is that I, the "Food Guru" herself, have a VICIOUS sweet-tooth. In fact, I have a whole mouth full of "sweet teeth" that I try to keep under wraps for health's sake. That being said, I was absolutely thrilled to find LesserEvil Black & White Flavored Popcorn--a blend of chocolate-covered popcorn and salty/sweet kettle corn that, when all is said and done, really isn't all that bad for you.

The folks over at LesserEvil are brave enough to flat-out state what all of us are ashamed to admit--that we ARE going to give in to temptation on occasion, so why not create a snack option that lets us indulge ourselves without all the attached guilt? And create they did! This popcorn is out-of-this-world tasty with only 120 calories, 2 g of fat, 180 mg of sodium, and 16 g of sugar. The snack-sized bag is 1.75 ounces (considered to be 1.5 servings), so even if you eat the whole bag (which you will), you can still respect yourself knowing that you haven't completely blown your diet. You'll also be delighted to find that you haven't consumed any trans-fatty acids, high-fructose corn-syrup, or other unnatural ingredients, and that you've even managed to get a gram of fiber and 4% of your daily iron requirement (based on a 2, 000 calorie diet). Not bad for something so tasty!

Ingredients: Evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup, popcorn, chocolate liquor, clarified butter, salt, lecithin.

Manufacturer says: Half of the kernels in this "LesserEvil" snack are covered in a natural cocoa glaze and the other half is our classic KettleCorn. Crave something chocolatey? Want a harmonious balance of sweet and salty? Black&White solves all your snacking needs! LesserEvil has no preservatives, no high-fructose corn syrup, no trans-fatty acids, no artificial flavors. It's low fat and gluten free!

3 year old says: More, more, MORE!

6 year old says: YUM!

Try it now: LesserEvil

I am probably not the best one to offer an opinion on this since I generally don't like popcorn. I, just like The Food Guru, have quite a sweet tooth but it needs to more sweet than air. That said, this was at least as good as any flavored popcorn and would be a good substitute to less healthy versions.
