Best Popcorn Flavor Picks for this Summer's Blockbusters

Summer is the season for blockbuster movies, BBQs, and sweet and salty snacks including your favorite buttered popcorn. But buttered popcorn is so 2010. We’ve leveled up popcorn and created some of the best popcorn flavors, snack ideas, and tastiest popcorn flavor combinations you can imagine that will, quite literally, drive your tastebuds wild!

We’ve paired some of the summer’s biggest blockbusters with our favorite popcorn flavors and best snack ideas. Choose one or all of them as your picks for the best popcorn flavors on the planet!

Black Widow with Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Popcorn

Get ready, Marvel fans, and meet Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), most popularly known as Black Widow. This film packs a punch from beginning to end, chronicling Black Widow’s origin story—full of mystery and action. And don’t forget to watch all the way through to the end for a sneak peek at what comes next in the Marvel Universe.

We give this movie two thumbs up and pair it with our specialty Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Popcorn, an all-time bestseller, rich and indulgent in its dark, mysterious flavor profile. Dark chocolate is the perfect partner for our creamy caramel popcorn, seasoned with just a hint of sea salt. 

Did you know? Dark chocolate may be a classic indulgence, but it’s also good for the heart. It’s true! The darker the chocolate, the more nutrient-rich its health properties. Cacao beans—like the ones we use in our Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Popcorn—contain nutrients like iron, fiber, and potassium, and are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants play a major role in helping to promote healthy blood circulation, relaxing the blood vessels, and maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. 

Of course, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt. (See what we did there?) As with any sweet treat, less is more. So make sure to consume our Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Popcorn in moderation. 

Fast & Furious 9 with Red Hot Cinnamon Popcorn

F9 is the stunt-filled sequel to The Fate of the Furious (2017), the ninth main installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, and its 10th full-length film—starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, John Cena, and more. The film spanned the globe, incorporating shooting locations across London, Los Angeles, Tbilisi, and Thailand.

We’ve chosen Red Hot Cinnamon as the perfect complement to F9. Just as fast and furious as the film, this sweet and spicy popcorn tastes like your favorite spicy candies—with just the right amount of heat and sweet—you’re sure to want more and more! This classic candy popcorn flavor is one of our most popular flavors since we opened the doors to Popcorn Friday.

Cinnamon is a spice that has been used around the world for centuries. It was even traded as currency! This spice is warm and sweet-smelling, making it popular in baking, cooking, and curries. Cinnamon comes from the inner bark of a small evergreen tree, where it’s peeled back, laid in the sun to dry, and rolls up into what we know as cinnamon sticks. 

What’s even more interesting (and delicious!) about cinnamon is that it has some seriously positive health properties. Cinnamon also contains antioxidants. Its anti-inflammatory effects actually help protect the body from disease too. Its prebiotic properties are also thought to improve gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria, helping to relieve digestive discomfort. There’s even some evidence suggesting that consuming cinnamon can help reduce blood pressure in the short term.

The Boss Baby: Family Business with Black Tie Popcorn

This animated sequel by DreamWorks is all fun and games…until now. Stay-at-home dad, Tim, and big-shot CEO, Ted Templeton, start a new family business and go undercover to defeat an evil genius alongside Tim’s secret agent daughter.

OK, this one might be a little easy. LOL We’ve matched up this movie with our exclusive Black Tie Popcorn. This super popular snack is a blend of our famous caramel popcorn drizzled with creamy milk and white chocolates. Mmmmm. It might sound elegant, but it was created for fun!

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you know that more is more...and the best desserts always come with complementary snack foods. For example, we like to create popcorn dessert trays using our Black Tie Popcorn and pair them with fresh strawberries, pretzels, and nuts. YUMMY!

No matter if you’re headed to the theater this summer or stream these favorite flicks from home, our delicious popcorn bags and popcorn tins are the best snack ideas—either eaten alone or with added sweet and savory treats. From action fighting sequences to car racing, to family adventure, we’ve got you covered with the best summer snacks this blockbuster season.
