And he is taking some of our favorite guilty pleasures of the holidays and reducing the fat, the calories, by quite a bit. And I want to start with sam's. I didn't know this about you. Your guilty pleasure is caramel chocolate popcorn. We can't say the name. We like to take one family dish and give it to two chefs. They convert it into a healthier option. I didn't believe you made that healthy. We made it healthier. I'm going to take this off and show you the calories. The bad is, per serving -- That's not going to look good on the wedding dress. Oh. You're never going to fit in your wetsuit. I never knew that. The bad calories, 695 calories per serving. And 35 grams of fat. That's horrible. Shall we have a look at the good one? Yes. Let's move quickly to the good one. Okay. So, the good one -- looks pretty. Now, there's a thing you're going to notice straight away. Come on. Let's hear it.

Then, we used dark chocolate. There's a big bunch of chocolate. And you make your own popcorn at home. It's a cheaper version, as well. The good facts -- we passed everything down. 325 calories and 10 g of fat. I want to show everybody. That's the verdict there. What a big difference. My guilty pleasure is my mom's garlic mashed potatoes. Absolutely. It's not a bad thing to have. But it's the things you put in. We're going to offer you choices now.
