The Perfect Popcorn for the 4th of July!
Patriotic Popcorn Tin
An emblem of the land we love, this popcorn tin treat pops a little patriotism into any occasion, not just the 4th of July! It’s composed of our vibrant cherry, crisp kettle, and sweet blueberry popcorn flavors to create a delicious snack we’re sure the Founding Fathers would be proud of.
Everyone loves popcorn! This Patriotic Popcorn Tin has 3 fun flavors- something for everyone! The bright red cherry popcorn is sweet and delicious! The blueberry popcorn is a little tamer, but is my favorite of the 2 fruity flavors. My ultimate favorite popcorn is Kettle Corn and the King of POP has done it just right! The “white” popcorn was the first to go, followed by a tie between “red” and “blue”. My son likes the berry flavors even more than the Kettle Corn.
This is the perfect snack to bring to your town parade, backyard barbeque, or even if you’re staying in, watching July 4th coverage on TV.
Speaking of July 4th, here are some fun facts you may not have known:
Did you know?
- The 4th of July is the biggest day of the year for hot dogs. More hot dogs are eaten on this day than any other day of the year. Estimates place the number of dogs eaten on this date at 155 million, or enough to stretch across the American nation more than 5 times over.
- Thomas Jefferson changed the wording of the Declaration of Independence from “the pursuit of property” to “the pursuit of happiness.”
- The first 4th of July party was officially celebrated at the White House in 1801.
- Other countries, including Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal and Sweden also celebrate the Fourth of July as a way to bring in American tourists.
Red, White and Green? Red, white, and blue are synonymous with Independence Day, but that wasn’t always the case. Some accounts from the 1700s indicate that green was used for decorations in early celebrations. After all, they didn’t have access to the selection of red, white, and blue cups, hats, and tablecloths that fill the stores today.
Turkey or Eagle? Benjamin Franklin originally wanted the turkey to be the official bird of the United States of America, but he was outvoted by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, who chose the bald eagle as the national bird.
