While we were in America, I picked up some butter popcorn since it's my favorite and they don't have it here in the Netherlands.
I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question. I was wondering if anyone knows how many calories are in the Orville Redenbacher's movie theater butter classic bag. On the box It says one cup popped is 25 calories and 2 tabelspoons unpopped is 170 calories. But it doesn't say how many cups or tablespoons are in one package. The U.S. labels always confuse me since they aren't very clear and I don't understand what they mean. In the Netherlands it's a lot easier because it says how many grams are on the package, then the back will tell you how many calories are in 100 grams and even how many calories are in the whole thing.
It says 2 table spoons unpopped is 37 grams and it's 170 calories. When I weighed mine unpopped, it was 107 grams. Of course mine still has the plastic on and it's the wrapping, but I don't think they weigh anything really. If I times 37 x 3, it's 111 grams which is close to the 107. So if I do 107 x 3, that is 510 calories. That seems pretty high, so I'm not sure if it's accurate. Please let me know what you guys think.
