Whether it’s butter, movie theater, or kettle corn. The majority of us love popping popped kernels in our mouths.

For me, popcorn is my go to treat. Why you may ask? Well, did you know that for about 5.5 cups of popped popcorn there are only 120 calories?!? That’s a lotta corn! Since I’m on a mission to lose weight counting calories is my favorite past time. So, when I feel the need to stuff my face, I stuff it with popcorn.

Probably, my biggest annoyance about popcorn is that I always have to dirty a bowl when we eat it. I don’t like to eat the corn out of the microwave bag because your hands get all yucky from touching the side, plus when you first open the bag it’s really darn hot!

This week for our Afternoon Movie Party, my kids and I were able to try out something new. It’s so new in fact that it isn’t even being sold in stores until February 20th! Orville Redenbacher Pop Up Bowls are the microwave popcorn that cooks in it’s own bowl!

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, GO!

With just some modifications to the bag, Orville Redenbacher was able to create a simple alternative to dirty dishes. The bag for the most part looks the same.

Love the old time movie container coloring.

I popped the bag in the microwave for just 2 minutes, which is the normal cooking time in our microwave for any popcorn, and when I took it out I was excited to see how the bag would work out.

Looks like a normal bag. Just peel off the see through portion and voilà!

Ready for some serious munching!

We popped in our movie, added the popped corn and our afternoon movie party was well underway!

They always look innocent before devouring their snack.

And then the best part! When they were done fighting over the last little bits of corn at the bottom of the bag I just picked it up and tossed it in the garbage. No muss, no fuss!

So remember to head out to your local Walmart on February 20th and get some Orville Redenbacher Pop Up Bowls for yourself! You dishwasher will thank you! 🙂
