"Consumers are demanding healthier snacks across the board and with a dramatic increase in popcorn sales, 21% in the past year, PopCorners are an ideal and easy decision," said Linda Fishman, President, Medora Snacks LLC. "PopCorners are a healthy alternative to most snacking options and something that everyone can enjoy given the great taste of our already popular flavors."
PopCorners are popped, not fried or baked, in the form of a triangle or tortilla that achieves an all-new shape of popcorn never seen before. The PopCorner's "chip" can be eaten alone or used with any kind of dip including salsa, ranch or sour cream and onion.
The average American eats about 68 quarts of popcorn each year, yet the snack has never had a true makeover aside from adding flavor to it. The fact is, it still gets stuck in your teeth and ends up making a mess. PopCorners, the first real popcorn chips, are here to shake up the traditional popcorn industry with a new shape that is made for your mouth.
PopCorners is not only a preferred "better for you" snack for adults, it has also been given to more than 150,000 students in Philadelphia and Chicago's school systems as an alternative to fried, baked and sweet snacks. With the anticipated addition of New Jersey, Los Angeles, and San Francisco school systems, they will soon be enjoyed by over one million students per month. PopCorners is an easy choice for school systems given that they are 100% all natural, in addition to being completely free of trans fat, gluten, and cholesterol.
