This was listed when I searched for 100 calorie Popcorn. The box says it is 160 calories per bag. Pepper is a little much for me, but feel stuck with it now. Still need a good 100 calorie popcorn. Anyone?
I love this popcorn! The taste is great and it gives me the oppertunity to eat a health popcorn with flavor. But no matter how much I try I can only seem to get half the corn in the bag to pop.
ORVILLE REDENBACHER BUTTERY SALT & CRACKED PEPPER MICROWAVE POPCORN
I was at a friend’s home for dinner with the girls. We were all admiring her new kitchen cupboards and when I looked inside to see how cool they were — and yes, just being nosey! — I noticed this new OR BUTTERY SALT & CRACKED PEPPER popcorn! Wow, Brenda gave me a bag and I was blown away!
If you like GOOD popcorn that is not dry, has a distinct, different flavor, and goes down easy with diet-Coke, ice water, or red wine, this is the popcorn for you!
EVERYONE I know who has tried this absolutely loves it! Get some, nuke some, enjoy some. You will be hooked! YUM!

This popcorn is ridiculously good. If you like salt and pepper chips this is the popcorn equivalent. No fake butter flavor. Very tasty and perfect sized bag for one.
This popcorn is a very refreshing change from either the dry “healthy” popcorn, or the over soaked “movie butter” popcorn. The pepper is very nice, and can give you a nice burn by the time you’re done with the bag (this is a good thing).
At first I didn’t like the idea of mini bags, but it turns out they are really the perfect serving size for an afternoon snack at work.
The black pepper is a bit overwhelming but I’ve become addicted!
Too bad they’re in mini-bags… bummed they don’t come in barrels or carts or wagons…
Kudos to Orville Redendbacher’s “natural” microwave popcorn line. Tasty stuff!
I have been a fan of the Naturals popcorn since it came out. My first try was with the Lime & Salt flavor (also an awesome flavor, but sadly discontinued). Then one day I found the Salt & Black Pepper popcorn. Talk about AWESOME! I love black pepper and this popcorn has it. There is pleny in each bag to give you the spicy pepperiness that you expect. The mini bags are great because I can snack on them at work and not be too much. My only complaint is that a lot of the pepper sticks to the bag itself, but you still get plenty of flavor.
This is the perfect combination of salt and pepper. Not too much of either one, and the butter taste is just right. There’s just enough heat from the pepper to give you some wow. I feel like Goldilocks doing this review, but it’s the truth. Great flavor, and texture, not too dry, and not too greasy. I love the mini bags for multiple reasons. If I’m eating alone I’m not eating too much, or wasting popcorn. If I’m not eating alone I’m not having to fight for my share. This is my new favorite popcorn. I’m glad I listened to the other reviewers and tried this popcorn.
Walking to the Health food section and saw this in the corner of my eye. Though it was odd but decided to give it a try. BEST DECISION I EVER MADE. It’s ridiculously good and nor dry. Subtle hint of salt and then comes the cracked pepper ^_^
Highly recommend this popcorn, buy it now 😀
This popcorn has a spicy kick to it thanks to the pepper flavor. After trying it at the local store, I found it online at Amazon for a better price with the subscribe and save. The mini bag is the perfect size for a snack for one person. I now crave this popcorn on a regular basis. It’s definitely my new favorite popcorn flavor.

I like the flavor of this popcorn. It’s a little on the salty side, but just right with the butter and pepper flavor. For some reason, these small bags don’t do so well in my microwave. I set it for the recommended 1:30 on high and still get a few burned popped pieces and a handful of unpopped kernels. If I cook it for less time, I get an unacceptable number of unpopped kernels, and any longer, too many burned popped pieces. I also tried the “popcorn” setting and get the same result as 1:30 on high. I don’t have any problems with the regular sized bags of buttered flavor popcorn.
The pepper is real crushed pepper pieces and if you like salt and pepper, like TRULY are a fan then, you will be scraping your pinky nail trying to get the last little bit. I was teaching a week of intersession classes with some younger kids. Everyday we made our own snacks, Creative Cooking. On that Friday we had movie day with of course you guessed it, POPCORN! I didn’t want the buttery yucky chemical junk and I also wanted to mix our local Hawaiian popcorn. I picked up one box of these from the Walmart to add to the mix. Honestly I didn’t realize it would be so much pepper. The kids still loved it. No one complained that it was spicy. However our popcorn mix had all kinds of things like pretzels and cereal, we used all our leftovers from the week…. Just saying this can be a big hit even with kids. Now, Im buying Amazon Prime’s 12 pack for right under thirty bucks, which will save me six dollars vs Walmart’s price.
Conclusion: May not be for everyone but a group of 13 little keiki all said “thumbs up”. Including me that’s 28 thumbs up!

Hated it and amazon wont allow you to return. Almost burnt my microwave. I bought this after reading all great reviews. It too much salt and horrible tasting.
The popcorn is just the right size and with the best flavor EVER. I eat it as a mid-day treat or as a light supper.
This is probably the best tasting popcorn I’ve had. The bag is small enough to enjoy as a snack anytime. Great product!
My wife was recently back home in Texas and she had some of this popcorn, She can not find it here in our state so she frantically searched every store we went to. Finally I decided to order her a whole case for Christmas. What a welcomed surprise it was to her when she opened the package. She loves the stuff so much.
Popcorn was never my snack of choice but I love pepper and saw this product in the store and thought I would give it a try. Now I am so addicted to this product. I love it so much my son bought me two cases for Christmas. Best Christmas present ever. The only downside is it’s not a full size bag.
Redenbacher’s popcorn has always been good stuff, but I’ve never really looked for anything besides butter flavored. Then I found these. I’m a fan of black pepper, especially on things like potato chips, and if you enjoy snacks like that you’ll love this popcorn. The salt & pepper combination is unique and very tasty without being overpowering. The only downside is it seems like a lot of seasoning gets left behind in the bag, but that’s one of the perils of microwave popcorn. It may work out better with the regular sized bags, but I’ve still got a few snack sized boxes left so I’m just speculating.

I fell in love with this popcorn and then they stopped carrying it in the grocery stores!! So glad I found it on Amazon! Its just not the same as sprinkling the pepper on…and the extra spice gives it a great flavor!! LOVE it!
Okay . . I didn’t buy this product from Amazon actually, but I will consider ordering it from Amazon when the store I am buying it from runs out (which they inevitably will). I got a 10 pack which was half natural butter and half salt & cracked pepper at my local outlet grocery store for 1.49 for the WHOLE BOX. What a great find and a thoroughly enjoyable snack! The cracked pepper is something I never would have thought I would like, but gosh . . it is terrific! And the plain natural butter – that is also sooooo delicious!
I randomly searched to see if I could buy a case of this on Amazon. It’s hard to find on sale and I have noticed that I have been running out all the time. The salt and pepper taste is the only popcorn I will eat now. My husband eats the Kettle corn but its way too sweet. Definetly recommend trying this if you like salt and pepper chips!

If Goldilocks were sampling popcorn, most are too boring, a few are a little too spicy, but Orville’s Salt and Cracked Pepper popcorn has just the right amount of zing. The mini bags are the right amount of popcorn for one person. The price is good, and Amazon delivered it even sooner than I had expected. Check it out.
I love, love, love this popcorn. Sufficiently low calorie and perfect for one — with a little sharing.
If you like pepper – this is sooooo good. I am hooked, and only 140 calories. A perfect snack for me.

I love Orville Redenbacher Naturals, Buttery salt and Cracked Pepper. The stores in my area stop selling it so I had to go online to buy it.

This is my favorite all time snack!!! They stopped carrying it at all of my local grocery stores so I’m so glad they sell it at amazon!!
I am a big fan of peppering my food instead of adding salt; so when I first found Orville’s Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper microwave popcorn, I had to try it. Well I liked it so much and completely more than any other kind of microwave popcorn I’d ever tried since the invention of microwave popcorn, I started telling people about it. I don’t do that for products unless I’m really impressed (this is my first review of any food item ever). I’m 50 years old too so that should tell you how long I’ve waited for a microwave popcorn to tell the world about. My oldest son loved it so much he told his friends and they now only buy this type of popcorn. Like father, like son.
Buy it, eat it, love it, tell the world!
I specifically ordered a case of this popcorn because I had received a free sample and absolutely loved it! It is the best popcorn I have ever eaten and highly recommend it. I had wanted to get it at our local Walmart, but they were out and when I found it on amazon.com, I had to order it ;0) I prefer the peppery taste to the salty taste by far.
I got a free sample of this in the mail and the very next day I had to run out and get more! Who would have thought a little cracked pepper could make popcorn taste this good! After a few handfuls I could feel a tinge of heat from the pepper on my tongue which I loved. I will admit it is a little salty and oily. I have also tried the other natural popcorn from Orville including buttery garlic (which could use more garlic in my opinion) and hint of salt but this flavor takes the cake! Wish it came in a bigger bag also at my local supermarket a box goes for $3.99 which I think is overpriced!
