19. Smartfood white cheddar popcorn

Don’t let the brand name fool you — you aren’t necessarily making the “smarter” choice by opting for this air-tossed popcorn dusted in white cheddar.

Air-popped popcorn is certainly healthier than steeping your kernels in oil, but that doesn’t mean Smartfood doesn’t add any oil to the snack — vegetable oil is the second ingredient on the list after the corn, just check the back of the bag.

This addictive snack isn’t as sugary as the caramel variety, but it’s still high in sodium and fat. Make your popcorn at home instead with whole corn kernels, but avoid too much butter and salt.
