At a place called The
Islander in Florida, they have an annual event dubbed Popcorn and Politics.
Here people get free popcorn (and possibly a glass of wine) while meeting and
listening to political candidates.
Hmmm—the popcorn may make
the evening worthwhile. Maybe other communities should try the idea. That may
be one way to encourage attendance.
From The Islander
A company well-known for its
mints and gum—PUR Company—has now entered the popcorn snacking arena.
The company, started in
Toronto, Canada, is now selling sea salt, sweet and salty, and caramel sea salt
The company decided to enter
the popcorn market because popcorn is considered a healthier snack than candy.
PUR is in 50 countries and
has over 50,000 distribution points. With that big of a market, the company can
try new things—like flavored popcorn.

Do you like popcorn? Do you
like Butterfinger candy bars? Well, then you probably will like Butterfinger
Candy Pop has created the
new flavor by coating popcorn with pieces of Butterfinger candy bar.
So far, the only place the
new flavor has been found is in WinCo supermarkets. Maybe Candy Pop is just
testing this new idea for popcorn in certain locations.
Sounds like an interesting
flavor. Hope Candy Pop’s new idea goes national soon. Besides, sounds like this is a flavor that would go good with Popcorn and Politics!
From Danielle Jackson
Turns out Candy Pop is not
the only company mixing Butterfingers and popcorn. So is Harry and David.
Harry and David have teamed
up with Nestle and to offer two new candy and popcorn snacks in its popular
Moose Munch Premium Popcorn: Buncha Crunch and Butterfinger Bits.
Sounds good—but remember the
more you add to popcorn, the more calories (and other stuff) you add. But oh

Doc Popcorn, known as the
world’s largest popcorn franchise retailer, is reviving its Poppin’ Pizza
The popcorn is flavored with
tomato, cheese, and Italian spice seasonings. It’s being touted as a snack that
is both delicious and healthy.
America has a love affair
with pizza, and a love affair with popcorn. What better way to enjoy them both
than pizza-flavored popcorn.
Doc Popcorn’s popcorn uses
high quality ingredients that are free of trans fat, MSG, artificial colors,
and preservatives. Other popcorn flavors include Klassic Kettle, Sinfully
Cinnamon, Triple White Cheddar, Sweet Butter, Cheesy Cheddar, Better Butter,
Caramel Bliss, Hoppin’ Jalapeno, and Salt-n-Pepper. Another feature of Doc
