Jolly Time Popcorn Review

I have some awesome popcorn to tell you about today that will satisfy everyone in the family! JOLLY TIME Pop Corn has got a Butter and a Light Butter to choose from so if you are watching your fat intake and calories but hubby isn't or the kids, they can have the real deal. The other awesome thing is that they are made with Smart Balance Blended Oils for a better and healthier heart!
I was sent one box of each kind and an awesome red shaped heart bowl to serve my very good for you popcorn in! Check it out:
Of course, you know who got the Butter one, right? It was hubby! I don't understand why he won't at least try the better version but he won't. Gosh, if I let him buy the popcorn, he gets that one that is called Movie Theater Extra Butter Popcorn! God, I took a handful one time and my mouth was so darn greasy it took me forever to get that taste out of my mouth! I don't see how he eats like that and stays skinny! And to top it off, his cholesterol is better than mine!! What's up with that?
I do love my bowl, though! It is nice and big and can hold almost 2 bags of popcorn but I can't even hardly finish one so I will save this awesome bowl for when we have company over and need to fill it to the rim with popcorn!  That was awfully sweet of them to send this really nice bowl for us to use.
Now, the new Butter Light Microwave Pop Corn made with the Smart Balance patented blend of oils that help support heart health, and their exclusive natural ButterCrisp flavor. Every handful of perfectly crisp, 100% whole grain kernels packs mouth-watering, melted buttery goodness with zero grams of trans fat and zero hydrogenated oil. The regular Butter that is made with Smart Balance has the same ingredients except I think it has a more buttery taste which means that they put maybe a little extra Smart Balance Butter in there!
Now, Jolly Time also has lots of other flavors of popcorn so they are not just limited to these two versions if neither of these appeal to you. Another one of their popcorn's that I really love is the Kettle Corn. If you have never had Kettle Corn, you have to try it at least once! It is salty and has a sweet taste to it all at the same time. Awesome combination! Of course they are calling theirs KettleMania.
They also have one called Mallow Magic which is popcorn with melted marshmallows mixed in! Gosh, that one really sounds like a winner! Gosh, I can just imagine the calories that are in that one and in the one they call The Big Cheez! Jolly Time describes The Big Cheez as THE ultimate cheese microwave pop corn, with larger-than-life, full-out Cheddar Cheese flavor. Every bite is loaded with a melt-in-your-mouth burst of rich, over-the-top taste. It’s extremely delicious.
Now, for ones watching their salt intake they have one called Low Sodium 100 Calorie Healthy Popcorn and another one called Healthy Pop Butter Flavor with 100 Calories. So, you see, they do have a little bit of everything for every one in your family. Of course, I would hate to be the one doing the grocery shopping if I had to remember who wanted what flavor! There are some more different flavors but I think you get the gist of what I am saying.
Then on top of all of that, they have some really fun items for you to remember them by such as these awesome bowls!
Gosh, if you wanted to take your popcorn to the beach or pool with you then you have to have one of  JOLLY TIME's Beach Towel! Course, you are going to have to like orange!
They have some other things besides these and I will let you explore them on your own and discover what all they have and the other flavors that I didn't have time to tell you about. There is more to Jolly Popcorn then meets the eye. 
Oh, heck! I have to show you one more thing that I think will make making balls out of popcorn seem so simple, why did I not think about that! It's a game we play and we try to make up venture's that would actually make it in today's small business and I think having a popcorn store would be on the very top of my list! Now, isn't that the most perfect popcorn ball you have ever seen?
You can also sign up for some freebies just by saving your box tops and sending them in for some really cool prizes like these 2 that I thought would be awesome. They have these two that I liked the best:

You can also go on their site and download coupons and get some magazine subscriptions to boot!

It looks like they tried to think of everything that would be fun and cool and I think that they have done a pretty darn good job!

It only takes 3 coupon codes from their boxes to get the grocery bag and the water bottle. So, it's not like they are making it really hard for you to get, if you want to.

And then lastly, I wanted to share this popcorn recipe with you because it sounds so darn awesome that I am going to have to get the ingredients and make it myself! The name will speak volumes and I bet it makes you want to make them as bad as I do:
