Did you know October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month? Personally, popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I love the variety of flavors I can enjoy depending on my mood from buttery to cheesy to chocolatey! One of my favorite places to buy popcorn is Great American Popcorn Company – Cedar Rapids. I recently discovered their Crunch Berry Day Popcorn, which actually has Crunch Berry cereal pieces mixed into it.
