One serving serving of kettle corn popcorn -- about 2 cups -- contains 150 to 300 calories, depending on the maker. A serving also has up to 15 to 20 grams of carbohydrates and anywhere from 9 to 24 grams of fat. If your kettle corn contains sodium it can contain from 150 to 350 milligrams in a 2-cup serving.
