Re: [IPk] popcorn



Hi Di


Give up the pop corn that you have to cook in a bag and buy the ready made
stuff that comes in foil bags with the carb counts on the back.

I tried cooking some for the twins and it was awful.  A lot of the corn
wouldn't "pop" and it said to try the bag for a bit longer!!!  It caught fire
in the microwave! It also tasted disgusting.   In fact it quite put the twins
off pop corn for a while.  I only bought it because I though it looked "fun"
and I thought it wouldn't be so sweet and sugary as the stuff that comes ready
popped in the bags.  I have fond memories of Butterkist pop corn years ago.  I
dont know if they still make it now.
I didnt find the ready made stuff did anything horrendous the Sasha blood
sugars.  But then she only had a handful which was about 15 carbs.
