this is definately not low fat/cal/sugar ... BUT ... i am a lover of popcorn for snacks as it is filling and keeps you busy for a little while if you need to munch. try other options like drizzling your own popped bag with fat free or sugar free toppings and artificial sweetener for fun .. whatever u want. you can get pretty creative with popcorn!

half a cup of popcorn for 12 can only eat a few. Better to eat the popcorn with nothing on it and eat it all. I don't know of too many people who'll stop at the one serving.

I didn't think this was too much work at all! My family thought it was delicious. Not sure how this fits into a "healthy" lifestyle with 1 3/4 cups of brown sugar, 5 tbsp oil and 5 tbsp butter....but yummy none-the-less. I used air popped corn.
