What’s Popping

Something new popping with Orville Redenbacher's Popping Corn
Orville Redenbacher's Popping Corn, a brand of ConAgra Foods, is shaking up microwave popcorn by adding a flavorful twist to one of America's favorite snack foods. The popcorn brand has introduced Orville Redenbacher's Flavors, individually wrapped bags of microwave popcorn that come with separate seasoning packets, allowing users to sprinkle on just the right amount of flavor – in White Cheddar, Extra Cheese, or Sea Salt and Vinegar. The popcorn giant has even turned to beverages to pair the flavorful twists. Beverages like old-fashion lemonade, red wine and even root beer floats are recommended. Orville Redenbacher's® Flavors are available at select food and mass retail outlets.
