M&S Guilt Free Snacking Sweet & Salty Popcorn

I don't know how they do it but M&S keep coming up with the goods when it comes to guilt free snacking. This Sweet & Salty Popcorn is a case in point.

Not too sweet, not too salty, but just tasty enough; this popcorn works very well for a crunch at lunch if you are trying to eat a healthy diet.

This 28g packet contains 137 calories.  The packet describes it as crunchy and moreish (marketing-speak for addictive) which is about right. The packet also says delicious treats, portion controlled, designed to help you count your calories.

Yes. But I sort of get the impression that if I don't eat the entire packet my portions won't be properly controlled. Oh no! We can't have that.

I can't eat too much popcorn (all that roughage is so unhealthy) but I do love it. There's something about those fluffed up clouds of exploded yumminess. Especially wonderful is microwave popcorn so you can enjoy the hot salty butteriness (or alternately hot buttery saltiness) in the privacy of your own home with the movie of your choice. But I suppose one must admit that this is a healthier option.

And more blossom because there is so much this year and it seems a shame not to take advantage of it. This is Prunus 'Kanzan'. Rather a dull tree 50 weeks of the year but stunning in full flower.


  1. Georgina!!! Guess what was just delivered!?? I'm so excited. I opened the box and nothing exploded! Must
    have been your superb wrapping! haha. The big kids will be over for dinner tomorrow (Wed) and I'm going to let them
    sample everything with us. It will be fun and we'll judge our favorites here with our American palettes and let you know!
    Thanks so much...and yes, flavors I've never heard of here!

    Your blooms are absolutely gorgeous!!!

    We had a similar popcorn here and I love it....

  2. Hurrah! And that is good news. Well done Royal Mail and United States Postal Service. I look forward to seeing what you all think.
    Don't eat them all at once!

    The blossom has been extra beautiful this year. Sadly it is now cold, wet and windy so most of it will be gone by the weekend. We have been spoiled with a hot sunny spring but we really need the rain. Believe it or not the UK can slip into drought conditions at the drop of a hat.

  3. Hi Georgina ~ I'm Eddie over from Betsy's.
    I am a total 'crispoholic' and was fascinated to see the varieties of crisps you sent ~ I have never heard of any of them . . . . lol
    I congratulate to Royal Mail too because I send a package to Betsy once and it arrived via Australia three months later. I had a few chocolate bars inside . .

    I'm signing up as your follower, Georgina.
    Nice to meet you ~ I am a rather eccentric ex ambulance man . . . who had been blogging for about 9 years . . . :)

    1. Well trying to sign up . . . not sure how but I shall put your blog on my sidebar to see when you are posting . . . Best wishes . . :)
