As an entrepreneur or career driven woman, you probably don’t get many opportunities to just sit back and relax with your favorite snack and drink and do nothing but chill out.
Yeah, me either. 😉
BUT when I do get a chance to chill whether it’s with my girlfriends or simply binge-watching my fave shows on Netflix, I pull out my favorite snack – POPCORN – and dive in!
Interestingly, I have a funny history with popcorn. My mom is the Popcorn Queen and she could eat popcorn for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if she could. She made it on the stove, bought the microwavable version, and the popped ones from the store. It didn’t matter how it came, that woman loooooved her some popcorn – and still does actually.
Even though I was around popcorn all the time, I didn’t really eat it growing up. Maybe a little bit here and there but it wasn’t my go-to snack. However, in the last couple of years, I’ve really been into it since it’s a nice low-calorie snack and I can pair it with all types of things (usually a cheese stick).
In my search for the perfect tongue-teasing, tastebud satisfying flavor, I’ve played around with a few brands but my favorite as of late has been Skinny Pop popcorn. Not only do they have a bunch of flavors (White Cheddar is my fave), but there are only 39-46 calories per cup – depending on the flavor – which is music to my ears!

Popcorn and Wine Together?
Now, since I’m not a huge wine drinker (I like a sweet red every now and then), I never thought to pair popcorn with wine and I’m not sure many others would either. But the savvy folks over at Skinny Pop haven’t missed a beat. I can’t imagine the time – and fun – it took for them to create the perfect pairings. Talk about a great job when you get to drink wine and eat popcorn for research purposes at work!
And here’s what they came up with…
Over to you…
One of the reasons I’ve taken to Skinny Pop so much is its importance of flavorful, wholesome ingredients. It’s the perfect addition to my nutritious meal plan!
