Where can I find 100-calorie pack of microwave popcorn?

I know, I know, so mundane, but for some reason I can't find the 100 calorie size. I'm specifically looking on the Upper West Side. Even Duane Reade doesn't have it!

    on the topic of 100 cal snacks, I love the Kettle brand baked potato chips in sea salt & vinegar flavor.

      Update: Jolly Time 100 calorie packs are sometimes available at Pioneer on 74th street. Still would prefer other brands but this it great for now.

        i was telling your saga to a colleague who was visiting New York from Ohio. she was intrigued with big-city life, especially with regards to apartment size, and couldn't get over that popcorn storage could be an actual concern. glad you found a source!

          I have a sneaking suspicion that I would pay as much for shipping as popcorn

              My Fairway (UES) carries 6 pack bags of 100 calorie Skinny Pop popcorn. I love them, and much prefer them to the 100 calorie microwave bags.

                Love skinny pop, but I have storage issues with prepopped

                  When I was in Food Emporium (Third Ave. & 82 St.) yesterday, I saw they had at least 2 brands of the 100 calorie popcorn.

                Fairway didn't have any

                You could always go with the old fashioned bulk popcorn and brown paper bag trick.
                Trader joes has already popped popcorn/lite kettle corn in smaller bags that are approx 100cal too.

                  Prepopped popcorn is a storage space issue for me. I need to buy microwave.

                    FreshDirect has it currently.

                      Did you check the standard supermarkets (Food Emporium/Gristedes/D'Ag)?

                        The Food Emporium near me went out of business, Gristedes and D'AG are far enough away from me that I would prefer to find something closer (I'm in the 70's). I can't really stock up (no space) so I need a place I can go frequently..
