Cape Cod's new snack is popping up on shelves

Cape Cod's new snack is popping up on shelves

Cape Cod introduces a new product that is popping up in grocery aisles all over – guilt-free popcorn. The healthy snack is offered in two new varieties – Sea Salt and Kettle Corn – that are 40 calories or less per cup and the company is also bringing back the widely popular White Cheddar flavor.

All three ready-made popcorn products will retail for $3.49.

  • Sea Salt: With only 35 calories per cup, this guilt-free snack is dusted with a sprinkling of sea salt.
  • Kettle Corn: This lightly sweetened kettle-cooked popcorn provides snacking satisfaction, with only 40 calories per cup.
  • White Cheddar: Back by popular demand, fluffy popcorn is sprinkled with deliciously sharp white cheddar for a truly mouth-watering snack.

In addition to being a healthier alternative when you crave a snack, the Sea Salt and Kettle Corn flavors are also Certified Gluten-Free by the GFCO, which makes it appealing to the 33 percent of Americans who are already eliminating gluten from their diets, according to research from the NPD Group.

 “We know that Cape Cod consumers love our better-for-you snacks that don’t compromise on taste, and they are going to love these new guilt-free popcorn varieties,” says Faith Atwood, marketing manager, Cape Cod Potato Chips. “We’re also very excited to let fans know that we’ve heard their requests to bring back our White Cheddar popcorn.”

The well-known Cape Cod lighthouse on the packaging is easily recognizable for consumers in the snack aisle.
