A Quick Churro Popcorn made with microwavable popcorn, sugar, cinnamon, and butter is what we have for a snack today. Yummm!!! It requires only 5 ingredients, is gluten-free, and contains about 7-8 SmartPoints in a WHOLE bag (5 cups of popped popcorn). It already has become a fixture on my list of fave snacks to have... including while watching a movie or TV series. 😉
Yes!!! It is a bountiful amount of scrumptious churro popcorn to enjoy -- either at once or to split between snacks... but that is the advantage of the new SmartPoints system, which delivers much more than calorie counting, and gives us the flexibility to eat real food and still lose weight.
This churro popcorn is prepared with Weight Watchers® Endorsed Jolly Time Pop Corn, which has 3 SmartPoints by itself. With the other added ingredients, our churro popcorn counts less than 10 SmartPoints, delivering major flavor and satisfaction in every single bite. It is indeed a quick and smart way to eat a rich sweet treat while losing weight... and I am taking advantage of it!
I bought my Weight Watchers® Endorsed Jolly Time Pop Corn at HEB, a local Texan supermarket chain. But it is available in many other supermarkets. Visit Weight Watchers Product Locator to find out where to buy this and other products. And not only that!

Preparing and enjoying such a decadent yet quick treat like this churro popcorn helped me get through the day with a smile on my face -- without any feeling of deprivation or much time spent preparing it. It really fit into my everyday wellness routine! And all that whilestill sticking to my plan, helped by the pre-portioned size from the individual bag of popcorn. The beauty of it all is that this treat can also do the same for you!
It is one of those win-win things -- our kind of thing, right? 😉
Well, almost... There is a "down" side: having other hands reaching out for a bowl of churro popcorn... its irresistible aroma and caramel color attracts one's other half and children quite easily. It happened to me -- you are advised to take the proper precautions. Ha!
Churro popcorn here I go -- again!
