New Year! New Vendor! New Prizes! Is your unit signed up for this year's Popcorn Sale? If not give us a shout and we're get you the exclusive Unit Kickoff Kit! Your kit would include items like: take order sheets, break room table tent order forms, military donation forms, money envelopes, a sample $600 club prize, and a unit banner all in a reusable Pecatonica River Popcorn tote bag!  The best item that you will receive in your Kickoff Kit is the Popcorn Party tasting sampler so your Scouts can taste the new products before they start selling. The most exciting piece yet about the 2014 Popcorn Sale is that all of the flavors, with the exception of the microwave line, is that they come in beautiful TINS with artwork by Terry Redlin. A great gift for the office, a grandparent, or something special just for you. So what flavors you ask?!

Microwavable Butter
Microwaveable Butter Light
Microwaveable Kettle Corn (IT'S BACK!)
Cheddar Cheese
