Orville Redenbacher’s Giveaway

By Shannon Gosney
In Food
December 4, 2010

I grew up with Orville Redenbacher’s products.  I remember my parents pouring kernels from the plastic Orville Redenbacher’s container into the Popcorn Air Popper.  The popcorn always tasted so fresh.  Now that I have a family of my own, I don’t use the Air Popper, but use the Orville Redenbacher’s Microwave Popcorn.  Our favorite brand is the Smart Pop! flavor.  In fact, we stock up on it each month at Costco.  We love Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn…whether we’re eating it during a movie or just snacking on it.

Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn provides three times more fiber per 1-ounce serving than other snack foods, such as pretzels or potato chips.  Just three cups of Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn provides an entire serving of whole grain.  Health magazine awards Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Popping Corn, Natural Lime and Salt as the healthiest and best tasting popcorn in its annual America’s Healthiest Food Buys of 2009.

I’m excited to participate in a fun event on Monday, December 6th.  From 9-11 p.m. ET (8-10 CT, 7-9 MT, 6-8 PT), come join us in a #gno Twitter Party where we’ll talk about healthy holiday snacks.  Click here for more details.


1 lucky reader will win an Orville Redenbacher’s Prize Pack (ARV $50), including the following items:

– Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn varieties (a mix of Light Butter, Lime and Salt, Cheddar and Kettle Corn)
– Popcorn bowl from Crate & Barrel
