In order to meet the growing demand for savory snacks that pack a little bit of heat, Smartfood Popcorn now comes in a Spicy Jalapeño Ranch flavor. According to recent reports, consumers ranks spicy among their top flavor preferences. As a result, Smartfood has bolstered its iconic snackfood with a little bit of heat and a zesty finish.

The new Spicy Jalapeño Ranch flavor combines the subtle spice of jalapeños with the smooth and creamy finish of ranch dressing. The seasoning is coated on air-popped popcorn made from 100 whole grains. The idea behind the new flavor is to satisfy the growing demand for spicy products, without alienating those who do not like too much heat. This means that consumers can begin exploring their palette's tolerance for spice while still enjoying familiar flavors.

The spicy new flavor demonstrates the growing demand for more exotic flavors when it comes to traditional snackfoods such as popcorn.
