SmartFood

My friend Nicole gave me a coupon for Smartfood.  If you ever wander around Target, I guarantee you have seen boxes of this at the end of the checkout counters over the last year.  I am always up for a new healthy snack option and I had a $1 coupon. I decided to try their Chocolate Cookie Caramel Pecan Popcorn.  I have to say I enjoyed the taste of the product. I am not so sure how healthy the snack is, but it does have a good amount of fiber and calcium.  I need to do a bit more research on the health benefits of brown rice syrup and chicory root.  What has me writing about this product is the amount of packaging this product uses. In each of those large boxes setting on the shelf is five 1 ounce bags of the popcorn.  The snack bags only take up 1/4 of the room in the box. You could easily fit 12 to 15 bags in a box.  I am so turned off by the waste the packaging created that I couldn’t enjoy the snack. I won’t be buying more unless Frito Lay changes the packaging.
