Jolly Time Popcorn is Celebrating National POPCORN Month with sharing a VAST array of recipes and products!
Instead of the sugary trick or treat candy, how about handing out their mini bags of Healthy Pop 100 calorie snack packs that are, guilt free,gluten free and a high fiber snack?
These smaller packs are ideal for a light easy snack for everyone in your household! I personally prefer the smaller bags, as I hate thinking I am wasting by not eating all in the larger bags, especially while watching a movie and not paying attention to how much I ate!
They are perfect for my grandson also, as a quick easy snack and they are full of flavor! JOLLY TIME Popcorn has always been a family favorite of our home, we live in Iowa where it is manufactured!
Healthy and gluten free are the new key words in numerous homes across our great nation, and due to years of research we have learned this is a great way to teach our kids how to take care of their bodies!
These packs pop easily at a microwave setting at 1 min 50 seconds depending on your microwave it may be different the box has settings. They were full of flavor and amazing for each of us to have our OWN bags. NO FIGHTING over who gets the bag 🙂
Check out the Easy Peasy recipe below for the caramel apples recipe! It is HEALTHY NUTRITIOUS and SIMPLE to make and the kids will love helping! For inspiration like theÂ Caramel Popcorn Apples, check outÂ www.jollytime.com/recipes.
