Snack Heart Healthy - JOLLY TIME Popcorn with Smart Balance - TWO Winner Giveaway & Review - ends 7/14/13 US/CAN


I received a a JOLLY TIME Smart Balance trial pack to facilitate with this review from Tomoson.com and JOLLY TIME.


In my home, pop corn is the king of snacks!  We make it all ways, on the stove, in the hot air popper, but the ever easiest way is just to pop it in the microwave.   We have tried all brands of microwaved pop corn, but the one that we actually buy the most is JOLLY TIME.

JOLLY TIME pop corn really cooks so well in the microwave.  It pops up plump, crisp, and taste good.  The topping we like best: butter flavor!  When I saw that JOLLY TIME has teamed up with Smart Balance to create a heart healthy microwave pop corn, I was thrilled.  Smart Balance has a unique patented blend of oils: polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated fats.  These were designed to help improve the ratio of good HDL cholesterol to bad LDL cholesterol.  All the benefits and great taste of Smart Balance makes JOLLY TIME Pop Corn even better than ever.


There are two different kinds of JOLLY TIME Butter Flavor and Butter Light - both made with Smart Balance.   Each is made with 100% Whole Grain Pop Corn, and has 3g of dietary fiber per serving.  The Butter Light does have less fat and sodium per serving than the original, but I found it still has all the flavor.   There is zero grams of Trans Fat (no hydrogenated oils), made with All Natural Flavors (no diacetyl), and is Gluten Free.  Another great fact that I found out about at JOLLY TIME FAQ is that all of their pop corn is non-GMO and grown in the United States!

JOLLY TIME w/Smart Balance Butter Flavor
As expected, when the popcorn popped, it filled the kitchen with its heavenly popcorn bouquet.  Every one was anxiously awaiting for us to stop taking pictures to they could start chowing down.  They had a movie all ready to go, and they wanted their pop corn!  This JOLLY TIME was all we expected it to be.  It popped up so crispy and plump.  Every bite was a treat.  

JOLLY TIME w/Smart Balance Butter Light Flavor
It was not long before I had to go back to the microwave to pop up another bag.  It just went too quickly!  We didn't even noticed a flavor changed from Butter flavor to the second batch of JOLLY TIME Butter Light.  It too popped up crisp and plump.  


I really appreciate the effort that JOLLY TIME has put in to their product to help my family and yours achieve a more balanced diet!  Thank you for making a Heart Healthy pop corn made with Smart Balance unique blend of oils for our family to enjoy!

  42. Great information, Heart health needs to be taken seriously. Eating right and getting exercise are huge factors in staying healthy. It is also a good idea to get heart rate variability tests conducted and get regular check-ups.
