“I have been making this popcorn for years and even though the original recipe states low-cal, it probably isn't but all I know is that its my second all time favorite way to eat popcorn, (aside from dripping in butter). To really make it scrumptous try adding 1 cup of mixed nuts or any of your choice to the popped corn before adding the syrup!”
