A Popping Up Snack Trend

Studies are now showing that people are more likely to reach for snack foods than sit and have three meals in a day. I might have been on to something when I went to college as I was infamously known for snacking my way through the day because I was always running out the door, literally. I still abide by this habit, as I rarely have the patience to cook a full meal, much to my mother’s dismay. Studies are now showing that this is becoming a popping trend in America. Is it our on-the-go lives or awareness to health? I’m hoping for both.

I think people are choosing to snack responsibly with all the hustle and bustle of daily life and the constant buzz about lifestyle choices. If the healthy choice is available, people will make it. “Almost nine in ten (86 percent) Americans take the health content of their snack foods into consideration,“ according to a new survey from Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps. Health is constantly in the news reminding America about the danger of the rising obesity numbers. There is so much chatter about the negative food choices that people make that I want to give a great big shout out to those that do snack responsibly. And an even bigger shout to those that snack smart with Rocky Mountain Popcorn, a gluten and nut free, whole grain, natural popcorn to give America a good-for-you snack!

I have always loved popcorn because it is a great alternative for unhealthy snacks because it is a low calorie tasty snack that takes longer to eat than a candy bar. So snack on, America.

Colorado From the First Pop

Many of you know that Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company produces a great local product that has burst its kernels nationally in every state. But our first kernels began right here in the eastern foothills as a true Colorado company. But what does being a true Colorado company really mean?

We can tell you our roots are truly Colorado because the company was started by a Colorado ranching family in 1985 and taken over in 2007 with the current headquarters just south of Denver. The actual kernel popping happens right nearby in Louisville. Our corrugated packaging is also produced right here in Colorado and supports the sustainable forestry initiative by using wind energy for the packaging production to help keep the Front Range beautiful (how Colorado of us, right?). We want to bring the bold taste of the Rockies to the national level with our products and share our Colorado morale with the world. We are proud to have the Rocky Mountains as part of our brand and always will be.

With the recent snow hitting us, the winter is sure giving us fair warning for its cold arrival. Get your popcorn ready for the holiday season and order from this truly Colorado company today. Our new holiday NottaTin has arrived just in time for gift giving. It’s not a tin so you can recycle (again, so very Colorado of us). It holds 15 bags of our delicious 8 flavors.

We love being a part of what Colorado is about so we support our local community (and Tim Tebow) as well as many national organizations, to support our healthy lifestyle and smart snacking message. Be sure to keep up with us on facebook so you don’t miss a pop!
