Salty Snack Breakdown

I love my salty, crunchy snacks, and often have cravings for crackers, popcorn, and corn chips. Those bite-sized bits of salty goodness are hard to resist for many, so here's a breakdown to let you know the nutritional value of your favorite salted treats.

1 cup salted, buttered microwave popcorn 30 1 35 4 .5
20 mini pretzels 110 0 75 25 3

I like a salty snack, but those Kashi crackers are much higher in sodium than I would have thought. What is your go-to salty snack? I would also consider skipping microwave popcorn for health reasons.

TidalWave, don't quote me on this, but I think that the chart is by the serving size on the packages. The pretzels that I buy are 24 pieces per 120cal serving. And I *think* the serving size of popcorn is by the cup.

how can you compare the serving size of 1C of popped popcorn to 20 mini pretzels? This seems misleading.
