Hi everyone....just wondering if jolly time's microwave popcorn is known to be safe?? I see that Annatto is used for coloring and I think I read that was NOT safe. Would ya help a newly diagnosed girl who is starving for a quick snack?? Thanks a bunch....

All of Jolly Time is gluten-free. I e-mailed them awhile ago and got a nice response. Even the kettle corn, etc. all gluten-free :P

Enjoy! I'm addicted to Jolly Time mini-bags.

Is Healthy Choice Popcorn Gluten Free?
  • 0
Diagnosed 11-11-05 after 3 months of major symptoms, including 2 hospitalizations and 7 ER visits for dehydration and syncope. Otherwise, I had all "normal" blood tests and major scans. During those 3 months, lost 20 pounds, all my muscle tone, and ultimately could not walk for 2 days. Spent 6 days during the second hospitalization hooked up to IV and STILL passing out IN BED due to malnutrition with doctors staring at me AS IF it was all IN MY HEAD

Other related symptoms:
Osteopenia
Hypothyroidism
Gluten Ataxia - three "nodes" recently found in my brain (thought I had MS)
Muscle weakness
Fatigue
Chronic Constipation
45 pound weight gain since going gluten-free!

gluten-free since 11-11-05. Cannot eat bananas, potatoes, or spinach. Recently reintroduced yogurt into my diet and able to tolerate plain yogurt with sugar.

HATE the diet but psychologically tolerating it for my health.

Healthy Choice is a ConAgra brand and they list the allergens so if it has wheat it will clearly say it. I have never seen a popcorn with rye, barley, or oats in it so I would think that is safe. If you are in question you should call. Someone who eats it on here might know.

Act II and Kroger brands are gluten-free. You might want to be extra careful of those with all the extra butter flavors and such as that is generally where you will get additives.

I know this is probably going to make you either laugh or think I am grasping at straw (or both) but we are going to the movie tomorrow for first time since my dx Monday. Should I assume I can not have my beloved movie theatre popcorn - without butter of course? We just spent three hours going over everything in the pantry and have to go shopping at Publix now. I can not call AMC Theatres until Monday and can not find a thread on this, just microwave popcorn. If I can't have movie popcorn, to me it won't really be a movie but I'll have to sneak in my gluten-free Paul Newman stuff.

Thanks I'll check it out! We did get through out pantry/fridge cleaning out but we got a late start. I needed to sleep in today due to bizare dream which woke/kept me up (will post about that on the sleep thread for interpreting help on Monday). Cleaning out the kitchen thing took a while. And we dind't even clean the silverware drawer out yet! Enjoy your weekend!

Have a good time at the movies! Those dreams really do get weird after we go gluten free. I don't remember ever even remembering dreams that much, but now they're so vivid and strange. You'll get through the house--look at it this way--it'll all be there when you get back :D

I eat Orville Reddenbacher's microwave popcorn, I got a nice e-mail response from them that they are a Con Agra company and will clearly list any gluten in the labeling.

I also like Act II microwave popcorn.

I've been eating the Act II Microwave Popcorn in the "Kettle Corn" flavor, and so far, I have NOT had any advert reactions to it. Thus, I am hoping that the Kettle Corn flavor in this brand is SAFE? (everyone is different, & I just may be able to tolerate it better than some folks??) Was curious here! :huh:
