One of the newest sweet popcorn snacks from Butterkist is a Hot Cross Bun flavor that's been created specifically for the Easter season. This limited-edition variety hopes to appeal to sentimental consumers looking to celebrate in new ways, as well as those who are also mindful about health and will appreciate the snacks being made with a base of fiber-rich air-popped whole grains.

In addition to producing the Hot Cross Bun popcorn for Easter, Butterkist also makes a seasonal Gingerbread flavor for Christmas, as well as other experimental vatieties like Hickory BBQ Pulled Pork, Toffee and Sweet Chili & Zesty Lime.

Beyond sugary and butter-coated popcorn types, many consumers are looking for more adventurous snack flavors that will satisfy their desire to indulge in treats that are flavorful, yet healthy.
