Orville Redenbacher popcorn giveaway

In our house we love popcorn. The kids love to eat it during family movie night and both of them can pack it away like you wouldn't believe. I've got one kid that's pickier than all get out with food and one with a major sweet tooth but popcorn is one snack that we can all agree on. Of course the kind of popcorn I really like comes from a movie theater and is swimming in "butter" but microwaved popcorn is a pretty good substitute.

Thanks to the good folks at Orville Redenbacher you can now enter my contest right here to win a popcorn sample pack. The rules are very simple. Leave a comment on this entry telling me your favorite "junk" food and what healthier option you like to replace it with. Or maybe you don't replace it with anything? Just tell me that! It's an acceptable answer too! Or maybe you don't eat junk food. That's not an acceptable answer because anyone who doesn't eat some kind of junk food is evil.

Two winners will be chosen at random to receive an Orville Redenbacher sample pack. Comments must be left before 11:59 PM on June 25th in order to be accepted. One entry per person please! You don't have to have a blog to enter but if you don't please make sure you leave a valid email address for me to get in contact with you if you are the winner.

Not sure what you would do with that popcorn if you won it? Try my popcorn salad!

I love love love ice cream and in my quest to lose weight (and be healthier, I guess! :)) I have substituted it with Italian ice. It pretty good if you let it melt a bit before you eat it.
Adrian has recently discovered popcorn and LOVES it! He's all about the kettle corn!

I love chips - and haven't found a good replacement. Any ideas? I just try not to have them in the house and when I really want some I buy one of those 25cent packs so that there's some form of portion control, otherwise I'd eat an entire HUGE bag if it was here.

I (heart) M&Ms


It's a pity, but they're so pretty... especially the pastels. Love Easter time.

Replace it? ummm, I don't think so.

(can I send my email privately?)

I personally love choclate. My husband loves popcorn w/ peanut M & M's in it.
No replacements for me.

I am partial to peanut butter and bacon sandwiches but pb and nutella travels better.

I want to take Cherry Blasters out behind the middle school and get them pregnant, but if I need something that doesn't stick to my teeth for the next 8-12 hours, I do enjoy snacking on frozen grapes.

Gretchen said...

I love drinking juice, but it has so much sugar! I should really focus on fresh fruit instead.

I love Little Debbie nutty bars. For each one I eat, though, I have to ride my exercise bike for at least 30 minutes! Worth it? Yep!

I don't have a favorite snack. They change with my mood. Lately, my snack of choice is mixed nuts mixed with plain M&M's. I read the popcorn salad recipe but I think I'll pass. I do like popcorn cake.

Beany said...

Mmmmm. Popcorn with potato chips. As if they're not bad enough on their own. I replace it with the 100 calorie popcorn packs with no chips. :( But not very often. And I can vouch for the crazy popcorn salad recipe. It's very tasty.

Linda said...

My avorite junk food is Tortilla Chips. I just can't seem to stop eating thme once I start. I do sometimes replace them with popcorn or fruit.

Caustic Cupcake said...

The comments are making me hungry.

I love to bake, but unfortunately I can eat an entire pie by myself.

I'm not sure how I could fix that, besides, you know, just not eating the entire freaking pie. But that doesn't feel like a viable option.

I have a huuuge sweet tooth so I've taken to making 100% fruit smoothies at home in my rickety old blender. They're super healthy, and I've started throwing in a scoop or three of protein powder which makes them really thick and filling. Love them!

Robin said...

we love ice cream here...so we replace it with Skinny Cow Ice Cream sandwiches...yummy! And so many to choose from...I love the mint ones..and strawberries and cream!...off to the store to buy some more now!

I am an ice cream LOVER! mmm... I like it full of chunks of brownies, or chocolate, or candies or anything (but nuts!) But, I LOVE LOVE LOVE popping a bag of microwave popcorn, spreading it out on a cookie sheet and melting some white chocolate and drizzeling it over it.... D-I-V-I-N-E!!! It is so yummy!!! a lil messy, but tasty inded!

Sam said...

My current favorite is potato chips. I'm not usually a chip gal but the embryo demands it. I'm not going to replace it with anything healthy-I will just wait until another craving hits me.
