Pop Weaver Microwave Popcorn Nutrition Information Per Serving Size

If you’re picking this discussion up from the previous entry about product serving sizes, you know why I think companies are misleading customers about nutrition information when they use serving sizes that are a much smaller amount of the food than most people consume in one sitting.

The good news is I have found one company that is being realistic!

I was in the store the other day and I noticed something very interesting on the side of the Pop Weaver microwave popcorn box. They were proclaiming “NEW!” in the nutrition information section.

That is a little unusual, but what I saw next was practically a consumer miracle! It said, “Many consumers eat popcorn by the bag. Compared to other brands, we make understanding the nutrition facts simpler by providing FULL BAG POPPED information.”

I used to always laugh when I saw microwave popcorn brands claiming that one of those bags was equal to 2.5 servings. “Yeah, right,” I would think or say aloud if I was shopping with someone else. In order to get the real nutrition info per bag, one would have to mentally multiply everything two and half times.

Consumers don’t have to worry about that anymore thanks to Pop Weaver’s change in labeling. Don’t you think it’s about a time a company finally did that?

Pop Weaver deserves a medal for having enough sense and guts to finally be realistic in their serving size and nutrition information. I hope this it the start of a new trend and other companies making popcorn (as well as a myriad of other product)s follow suit.

A move like this is a clear victory for consumers and common sense.

Now, if Pop Weaver will just stop using hydrogenated vegetable oils in their product, I shall give them even more praise!
