These delicious two seasonal flavors returned due to consumer demand, originally inspired by signature holiday treats and desserts – Frosting, Gingerbread Cookies, Peppermint Candies, and Hot Chocolate. The indulgent combinations of Iced Gingerbread and Peppermint Hot Chocolate, combined with Cookie Pop and Candy Pop’s delicious non-GMO popcorn, make for the perfect holiday season snack offering to family and friends. Plus, it remains guilt-free at only 150 calories per serving.
On November 6th, SNAX-Sational launched their Gingerbread House Contest Giveaway timed to #GivingTuesday to allow their customers to partake in the fun, driving a social media campaign with at-home Gingerbread kits utilizing the popcorn, celebrated with a Gingerbread House making event in New York City on November 10th for press, influencers and vips.
