According to the release, the better-for-you-snack is made 100 percent in the U.S. with non-GMO corn, is low in sodium, and only 150 calories per serving.
The popular, low-calorie, candy or cookie-coated line was named a “Top 20 Snack of 2020” by Buzzfeed and continues to garner attention amongst consumers, celebrities, and the media.
Candy Pop flavor varieties include popcorn made with M&M’s® Minis candy pieces, SNICKERS®, TWIX® candy pieces, and Butterfinger® candy pieces.
