Help Mom Have a Healthy 2015 with Popcorn, Indiana

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Popcorn, Indiana offers multiple products that could be perfect to toss in with your mom’s gift this Mother's Day!

Whether she has a sweet tooth or is a lover of savory, Popcorn, Indiana has something that can make those taste buds tingle. And with healthy options such as FIT and Popcorn Granola Clusters, she can really enjoy her Mother’s Day – all while continuing to eat healthfully.

I tried some new products from Popcorn, Indiana lately and I am loving them!


My favorite product from Popcorn, Indiana that tastes great and keeps me in my calorie goal for the day, is FIT Popcorn Chips in White Cheddar flavor!

All the chips that are FIT to eat. Made with ingredients you can trust. And chipped to perfection. Thin and crispy. Loaded with flavor and bursting with love. Dippable too. This is Popcorn Inspired!

Made with:

• Certified Gluten Free
• No Artificial Flavors
• No Artificial Preservatives
• No Artificial Colors
• No High Fructose Corn Syrup
• Zero Cholesterol
• Zero Grams Trans Fats

They give me the crunch I crave without all the icky ingredients and high calories you find in other chips!


And if your mom (or you!) have a sweet tooth, then you will love their Drizzlecorn Popcorn!

My fave is the Dark Fudge Sea Salt Caramel Drizzlecorn™. They drizzled sinfully smooth dark fudge on top of hand-crafted, taste bud-rocking buttery Caramel popcorn. Then they top it all off with Pacific Sea Salt. It’s sweet and salty, it’s crunchy, and it may be the best invention on the planet since their Chocolate Peanut Butter Kettlecorn. Yes, it’s over the top, but if you’re going for it, you might as well go all the way. Enjoy and Munch Better™.


And if you just like good old regular popcorn, they have that too! The FIT Real Butter is my favorite and has all the taste and crunch you crave, nothing artificial and...here’s the best part... only 40 calories per cup. All the taste without the guilt trip.

Made with:

  • Non-GMO Corn and Oil
  • Good Source of Fiber Contains 6 g of total fat per serving
  • Whole Grain
  • Certified Gluten Free
  • No Artificial Preservatives
  • No Artificial Flavors

This Easter, I want to recommend healthier treats to serve at your Easter dinner, put in your child's Easter Basket or eat to celebrate the arrival of Spring!

Ciao Bella Gelato is one of my favorite treats lately and I can't recommend their tasty Gelato Squares enough!!! They are so decadent and delicious and, best of all, made with non-GMO fruit, hormone-free dairy and fair trade cocoa. They are made with ingredients I can read and know and I love that!



Established in 1983, Ciao Bella Gelato began creating authentic gelato and sorbetto in a small gelateria in New York City’s Little Italy, a neighborhood rooted in flavor and an unwavering love for delicious food. Committed to hand selecting the finest quality ingredients and crafting them into today’s best flavor interpretations, Ciao Bella’s premium products are driven by the creative vision and artistry of our chef, and are inspired by Mediterranean culture and cuisine.



The Key Lime Graham Gelato Squares are so refreshing and sweet! It features all the delicately sweet tartness of classic American Key Lime pie, with a touch more citrus and some added crumble.


And the Sea Salt Caramel are for my chocolate craving days! The delectable swirls of sea salt caramel and chocolate are perfectly sandwiched between two flakey chocolate wafers.


These are seriously such a treat for me every time I eat one! They would make a great Easter dessert!
