Free Popcorn

So, Orville Redenbacher's sent me some popcorn samples not too long ago, and being the popcorn fiends that we are, we ate them up promptly.

Naturally, I left the "Smart Pop" with the 94% fat free butter at the bottom of the stack, because I have a natural aversion to all things healthy and terms like "whole grain", "zero trans fat", "good source of fiber" and "low calories" scared me away.

When I ran out of buttery soaked goodness, I gave in and tried it and surprisingly, it was really good. Like really, really good. Like so good that I used the coupons they gave me to buy more, and I have been pretty much existing off of it ever since.

I would even go so far as to call it my new diet plan.

So I emailed the nice person who sent me the samples and told them that my whole family was totally digging the Smart Pop, and they have offered to send some to one of you!

So, comment below if you want a popcorn bowl and some popcorn sent to you. You have until midnight tomorrow (that's Tuesday!) to leave your comment. Then I will ask Big Kid to choose a number and whatever comment corresponds with that number will get some popcorn of their own!

I know it's just popcorn, but I'm excited. Who doesn't love free stuff?

Woohoo! Popcorn! This is my absolute favorite and Little L loves it too. I'm pretty new to Ashley's Closet, but Ashley is now a daily read for me.

Slacker Mama said...

I'm assuming that Big Kid can count past 30, right?

Because otherwise, I'm demanding a recount.

adamandkaylasmommy said...

I love me some popcorn. I am wondering how high big kid can count. I dont think I have a chance, being comment # 30 something.

I don't know that I feel right asking to be picked for the popcorn since I have only left 2 comments before. But I do read many times a day! Does that count? Aw what the heck, PICK ME!I eat popcorn nightly, as in for supper while the kiddos eat real food.

Sasha said...

You had to expect that I'd be commenting. It's food for God's sake!

Hell yes I want free popcorn! Especially as that is the brand and type we buy anyway!

Mamalicious said...

I would love it if big kid picked my number and I got some FREE popcorn. But even if I don't get free popcorn, I'm glad to know that the Smart Pop is good and that I'm not the only person with aversons to the terminology that you listed.

Popcorns sounds good - too bad I really shouldn't have any for awhile - stupid root canal. Maybe if I eat one piece at a time and let it get all mushy in my mouth first - then chew! :) LOL!

MistyCreek said...

(While carting around fussy newborn, dripping breast milk onto every surface in a two-mile radius and chasing 2-yr old who sleeps with no sheets since she wets them EVERY night) Popcorn, please?

Renee said...

I wasn't able to read your blog yesterday because the computer in our hotel's business center has a Net Nanny program on it that would not allow me to open your site. The nerve! But I found a loophole today so that I could enter the drawing for the popcorn. :) Am I #69? He he he.
