Orville Redenbacher Giveaway $50

I’m totally a snacker. Always have been, probably always will. One of the hardest parts of being an adult with a slowing metabolism is finding snacks that not only do I want to eat, but that don’t head straight to my hips.

I’ve found a great snack {popcorn} that meets the above criteria, and it comes from Orville Redenbacher.

Here’s a few more reasons why I think Orvilee Redenbacher’s popcorn is the perfect snack:

  • 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.

It’s good for me, and helps me stay vain.  🙂  It’s so good in fact, that I want to share the goodness with you.

Orville Redenbacher is providing a lucky winner with a healthy snack package, (pictured below) worth $50.00.

The yummy prize package contains:

    Healthy…that’s not as fun. Usually, it’s a piece of fruit…an apple, or a clementine.

    Do I need to tweet for this entry, or is that extra?
