Sugarholic 101: Changing snack food



Terrie Goldstein is the publisher of Hudson Valley Parent

I remember this story from 3 years ago. As I continue my journey on Sugarholic Road, I thought I would share it again.

This is a Friday day for me. I had two major projects to complete and, you guessed it, neither got done. One of our office computers had a Trojan virus that captured the screen and made the machine useless. Frustration Friday.

Food…enjoying flavorful food is my favorite pastime when things are not going well. Chocolate. Ice cream. Candy bars. They are my comfort foods.

Today I choose a different comfort food or maybe you could say it choose me. Our UPS delivery man brought us a box filled with popcorn…five bags in a multitude of flavors from POPCORN INDIANA. (Not sure where it got its name from, since the company’s address is in Englewood, NJ.)

But here we are on a crazy Friday afternoon all crunching away and determined to leave the office with a smile.

The Fit Sea-salt bag tasted sinfully good, with very few calories.

And the Kettlecorn reminds me of a lighter Crackerjacks, except it doesn’t have a prize. According to their website Popcorn Indiana is available at locally at Price Chopper
