Popcorn can be very confusing. I am assuming this is a low calorie or lite popcorn.
I think you are getting info on 2 ways to measure servings: one way to measure serving is by unpopped kernels (2 T) which = 4 cups popped.
However, what you are really interested in is the popped amount. 1 cup portion of the popped corn = 30 calories. Measure and see how many 1 cup portion are in the bag after it is popped.

Hi All, I'm confused in reading the label on the PopSecret Homestyle popcorn box.
A serving size is indicated as '2 tbsp unpopped or 4 cups popped". Servings per bag = "about 3" Then, it says "Amount per serving -- Calories for 1 cup popped = 30"
Sooo -- my question is-- Is a serving size 1 cup popped or 4 cups popped? If it's 1 cup popped that makes the whole bag ~90 calories to consume (30 calories x 3 servings in the bag). If it's 4 cups popped it's going to be 360 calorie (4 cups in a serving x 30 calories (per 1 cup) = 120 x 3 servings per bag)-- quite a difference!
