Topcorn Tribe






























Ever had one of those emails that makes you full on squeal? Well I had that recently when the fab team at Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn invited me to be part of their Topcorn Tribe. Being in the Topcorn Tribe is genuinely one of the best things that has ever happened to me, yep I am that sad. Each month Metcalfe's send out a gift box full of the yummy (and healthy) popcorn for me to try and not eat in one go and share my thoughts about across the internet. (My family name is actually Metcalfe too so maybe I am like an unknown heir to an incredible amount of popcorn... probably not!)

I'm trying to make better food choices (for me this means having a medium meal instead of large at McDonald's) and swapping bags of crisps for a much healthier and frankly even tastier snack has been a great way to reduce the amount of calories I scoff every day. Each bag of popcorn is really low in calories, each around 110 calories a bag apart from Chocolate Crackle which is 230. If I am just snacking then half a bag is more than enough to satisfy my cravings!

Inside this months box I received two of each flavours of Wasabi Glaze, Heat n Sweet, Chocolate Crackle, Sweet and Salt, Sweet Cinnamon and Sargent Salt. The only one I don't like is Cinnamon simply because it's a flavour I have never liked, although my Nan managed to quickly solve this problem! Every other bag is amazing and really tasty, I really couldn't pick a favourite! 

Metcalfe's Skinny have recently joined forces with the charity CLIC Sargent, the leading children and young person's cancer charity. They have pledged to raise over £30,000 through the sale of the special Sargent Salt bags of popcorn you can find in stores now. What better feeling is it to snack on a lovely and light snack, and to know the money will be going to a really great charity. 

I'm developing a full on addiction and for one it's too a snack that is actually not bad for me. If you haven't tried Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn then go pick up a bag of Sargent Salt, you'll end up falling for the super light and bouncy texture and yummy flavours.

Are you a popcorn lover?
