Pop Weaver Made with Canola Oil

My girls love popcorn and we have one of those counter type popcorn makers that is really good but I don't always feel like putting it altogether nor spending the money as the popcorn we use is a little more costly.  We turned to that popcorn maker when we found we weren't happy over existing microwave popcorn until I had a chance to receive a complimentary box of Pop Weaver popcorn made with canola oil.  


Here are some facts:
  • The first and only microwave popcorn made with canola oil, which makes the popcorn lowest in bad saturated fats.
  • Canola oil is 93% composed of beneficial polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats that:
    • supply Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fats
    • lower bad LDL cholesterol
    • help prevent coronary disease
  • Canola oil is trans-fat free and is lower in calories and saturated fats than palm oil, soybean oil, corn oil,
    sunflower oil, and even olive oil.
  • full bag of our Extra Butter has 0g trans fat, 2g saturated fat, and only 260 calories. Let's see any
    other microwave popcorn beat that.
  • Canola oil is sourced in North America and does not contribute to the destruction of rainforests.

Per bag popped

Pop Weaver's Butter Burst flavoring is maximized at the time of popping and coupled with the canola oil, it provides a robust flavor.

I found Pop Weaver was fresher tasting and had a buttery yet not heavy taste.  My daughter loved it and has already ate the box that was provided.   Since it's the first to use canola oil, which is better for you, I am more inclined to purchase Pop Weaver again due to the health factor, the freshness and taste.

Pop Weaver was also just featured in the July 2010 edition of Prevention for being a company that makes it easier to swap bad fats for good ones.  Click here to read more.

Family Fun Night & Great Hasbro Offer

We started a family tradition back in the fall of "Family Fun Night" and one of our family Christmas presents will help us to continue the new tradition.  We bought one of those bigger but small popcorn theater type popcorn makers and I just ordered the same popcorn, coconut oil and salts that the movie theaters use.  I think instead of a movie, we'll take advantage of Hasbro's great new offer.

Hasbro has Create Your Own Family Game Night special where you choose six games and get one free for only $13.99 a month (plus shipping and handling).  If you sign up for this, you will also get the bonus pack that includes:
  • 2 free Dominos pizza coupons
  • Family Game Night trophy (great idea for the kids!)
  • Family Game Night Score Sheet
What makes it even more enticing, you don't know which game you will receive so it will be a surprise each month.  There are restrictions in choosing the games and they break it down to three groups but the games include:
  • Monopoly
  • Boggle
  • The Game of Life
  • Battleship
  • Scrabble Upwords
  • Sorry
  • Clue
  • Hungry Hungry Hippos
  • Taboo

There is even a breakdown for bundles that simplifies the decision making based on children, new games, adult games, family fun and strategy based games.
