Pampered Teacher is gearing up for the Fall subscription boxes that will be full of back to school surprises!
In our search for awesome products that are classroom friendly, we found Lesser Evil organic snacks
! Not only do they have a really cool story and hip packaging, they sent Pampered Teacher a shipment of their Buddha Bowl Popcorn to be featured in the Fall boxes!
Keep in mind all opinions are totally mine!
Why Teachers Will Love Buddha Bowl
1. Generous Portion - When you're hungry, you want something that's substantial. It's hard to tell from a photo, but this bag of 100 calorie popcorn is a very generous portion. And because I'm a bit of a nerd, I got out my ruler and measured. Yep, the package is 9.5" which contains 2.6 cups of popcorn. And this isn't a serving size trick either - one bag = one serving.
2. 100 Calories of Goodness
- There are a lot of 100 calorie snacks out there, but many are not that health - or even unhealthy. Huffington Post did a comparison and pointed to popcorn as a better option, stating that "
packs more antioxidants than a serving of fruit or vegetables" per a recent study from the
University of Scranton.
3. Classroom Friendly - Teachers must be concerned with allergies in the classroom. This snack is gluten free and peanut free. It does however use coconut oil, which is considered a type of fruit though
the FDA considers coconut a nut. For further clarification...in an issue of Allergic Living Magazine,
Dr. Watson’s wrote: “Coconut is a member of the palm family, which is not related to nuts or peanuts." If you are concerned, please consult your doctor or school policy before using it in the classroom, however.
4. Ingredients You Know - while you may not be familiar with Himalayan Pink Salt, you get what it is and where it's from. Beyond that there are only 2 other ingredients, which I guarantee you can pronounce and spell.
Look for Lesser Evil Buddha Bowl organic popcorn in upcoming Fall Pampered Teacher boxes.
