Product Review: Colonel Popper Silicone Microwave Popcorn Popper

What’s a whole-grain, low-calorie, gluten-free, high-fiber, tasty snack that won’t break your food budget? Popcorn! Now, before you think that popcorn is a greasy, high-fat, high-carb snack that you wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole, think again. Popcorn, when popped and prepared the right way, might just be your new go-to snack, thanks to the Colonel Popper Silicone Microwave Popcorn Popper.


This popcorn popper is unlike others that you may have used in the past. It’s made of BPA-free, food-grade silicone that easily fits in your microwave. Add your favorite popcorn and oil (or no oil at all!) and within 2 to 4 minutes, you’ll have a bowlful of a delicious snack that you and your family will enjoy. (By the way, 3 cups of popcorn contain about 19 grams of carb, which is equal to one carb choice). The Colonel Popper microwave popper is dishwasher-safe and is collapsible, so it won’t take up valuable space in your cabinet, closet or pantry. Make a single serving or a whole bowlful (14 cups) for a crowd. Forget about unhealthy expensive snacks — you now have a healthy, fast, go-to snack, thanks to Colonel Popper!
