    Hi, i'd like the points value of a big bag of popcorn please, i have actually gone off chocolate :eek: and my new thing is sweet popcorn, however i can happily eat the whole bag so i would like to divide it up into smaller portions.
    That card calculator thing too difficult as not precise enough for this kind of thing.

    cals = 510 for 100g - but its a 120g bag

    sat fat = 3.6 for 100g - but again its a 120g bag

    im sooooo confused but i need my fix, please help me!!

    Oh can you get points from the ww site? or is it the site that you pay for?

    I took a guess at 10/11 but i wanted it to be acurate as i will need regular fixes lol!

    Thanks very much for helping! :)

    I've got some Butterkist sweet popcorn bags and I'm sure they're only 7-8pts per bag (then I say I'm sure, I mean I think, haha, they've been in the cupboard for a while and I worked out the points when I got them). You should try those, it's really yummy and the extra of couple of points make all the difference - every points counts ;)

    Hi ive tried the snack a jack one, thanks for the tip but i dont like the really sweet toffee ones,
    this one is the cinema sweet one so quite plain really, although not that plain obviously as its 10 points a bag!!!

    i dont pay anything to use ww, i joined to use the forums. I havent wrote on them but when im stuck on something i type it in the search box and 9 times out of 10 you get you an answer.


    I buy snack a jack popcorn in multipacks and they're only one and a half points either toffee or chocolate flavour. These must be slightly smaller than the regular packets off the shelf!
