So today I am poorly. I wasn't poorly this morning but I've got gradually worse during the day - 4pm being the worst time. I was in Tesco and suddenly I couldn't breathe and felt dizzy, then came the stomach pains. Since then I've been led in bed, waiting for death. To cheer me up my lovely Mother bought me a packet of Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn and some Sunny D, so now I'm led in bed stuffing my face and feeling ever so sorry for myself.
Ever since I found out about Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn I have wanted to try it. It's been on my "most want to eat" list for months. Especially when I found out about the Topcorn Tribe - honestly, I've never wanted to be involved in a product so much in my life. So obviously when my Mum came into my room with this massive "share" packet of Sweet N Salt Topcorn I almost cried with happiness (and stomach pains).
Firstly, if you don't know about Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn here's a little background information taken from their website:
"It started with a POP. As the Co Founder of Pret & Itsu, Julian Metcalfe is obsessed with delicious and healthy food. Back in 2008 he was fed up of stodgy snacks that weighed him down & he wanted to create something that was light yet tasty to replace the bog standard crisp. Popcorn was the perfect fit & Metcalfe’s skinny topcorn was born. After experimenting with dozens of flavours & varieties (not to mention a run in with a chocolate drizzle machine) Julian came up with the perfect recipe for freshly popped butterfly popcorn tumbled with Metcalfe’s unique flavours & seasoning. Pret was the first place that stocked the magic stuff & from there, the company quickly gathered a growing legion of fans."
Now onto the popcorn! Sweet N Salt is a lovely mixture of - yes you guessed it - sweet and salty flavours. When I opened the packet for the first time I was overwhelmed by how nice these smell! Absolutely gorgeous! I honestly couldn't wait to stuff my face and I knew right from the word go that I was going to enjoy eating this massive bag of popcorn all by myself. I just love how the two flavours contrast so well with eachother, it tastes absolutely delicious. My favourite part in all of this is that the popcorn is actually so healthy! For a massive share bag like the one I'm currently scoffing it's only 115 calories (or 3 weight-watchers points!) per serving! Which is amazing when you think about how many calories are in a small packet of crisps (Walkers Ready Salted Crisps are around 133 calories, and that's only for a small bag!!) I can tell that Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn is going to be my new favourite snack, it really is insane how nice it is. Plus they're super healthy so I can scoff my face without feeling incredibly guilty!
You can buy Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn in many, many flavours - Sweet N Salt, Chocolate Crackle, Heat N Sweet, Wasabi Glaze and Sea Salt - so you've got loads to choose from.
