>>> I was curious about the calculation of Popcorn. Sometimes, counting points is hard because the individual packet weight and size is nothing near the nutritional measurements and a conversion had to be done.

For the popcorn, the un-popped weight of the bag is 85g. According to the nutritional calculations, 40grams or 7-1/2 cups of popped popcorn is 3 points. I popped the bag of popcorn 100% not leaving any unpopped kernels, and all I got was slightly over 6 cups of popped popcorn! My red strainer container was too large to fit on my scale, and I didn’t think to weigh it in the bag before I emptied it and tossed it into the strainer. So .. I still took 3 points like I have always been taking for an individual size bag of popcorn.
