I remember when the hot air poppers came out in the mid 1970’s. Mom fixed a bowl of popcorn several nights a week because it was considered almost zero calories. There was no oil, salt etc. She even ate it when dieting.
Microwave popcorn sort of took over the market. But hot air poppers are still sold.
How healthy is popcorn cooked in a hot air popper vs the standard microwave packs?
Is it really a extremely low calorie snack? Is it ok for people on diets?
For those that hven’t seen one…
Hot Air popcorn maker.
triva… before hot air poppers, we bought the popcorn in a foil pan that already had oil. Put on stove and shake until done. I think it was Jiffy??? Can’t recall for sure.
