Candy and popcorn are two go-to movie snacks that are combined in the treats produced by Retro Corn. Some of the varieties available include Rhubarb & Custard, Cola Cube and Cherry Pips, which are described as "popcorn coated with crushed sweets." These all-natural popcorn flavors are made in small batches that are both gluten-free and vegan.

The vibrant color-coded packaging for the popcorn bags takes cues from traditional British sweet shops, but it also plays up nostalgia and elements of the punk movement.

Since popcorn can be so easily flavored with sweet, salty, sour, spicy or savory ingredient additions, this snack has become a popular way for snack food manufacturers to experiment with unconventional flavor hybrids. A few of the most unconventional popcorn flavors on the market take inspiration from meat or citrus fruits.
