Calories in Kettle Corn Popcorn

By Sommer Leigh

Kettle corn, a slightly sweet and salty snack, is found at fairs, farmer's markets as well as local grocers. Its calorie content varies significantly based on the ingredients used to prepare it. Kettle corn is often made with sugar alone, but some prepare it with salt as well.


Kettle corn popcorn comes in its original flavor, a salt and sugar variety, along with other flavor combinations such as chili cheese, cinnamon sugar and white cheddar. Microwaveable versions often contain fewer calorie and fat than regular kettle corn.


Kettle corn popcorn ingredients usually include peanut or corn oil, popcorn, salt, chili powder, natural cheese flavoring, cinnamon, cheddar cheese, butter, whey, cream, buttermilk, lactic acid, sugar, and other natural and artificial flavors.
