Conagra Brands has expanded its Angie’s Boomchickapop portfolio in the US with two new snacks: sea salt air-popped popcorn and white cheddar puffs.
Made with three ingredients – white popcorn, avocado oil and French sea salt – the new popcorn variant contains 35 calories per popped cup.
Meanwhile, the white cheddar puffs are a crunchy corn snack baked with real cheddar cheese. Both products are gluten-free.
Kevin Moses, senior brand manager of popcorn at Conagra Brands, said: “We’re excited to continue introducing new ways for consumers to enjoy Angie’s Boomchickapop. The addition of white cheddar puffs gives us the chance to expand beyond popcorn, but still deliver on the promise of a hugely flavourful eating experience in a new format.
“With sea salt air-popped popcorn, we now offer a ready-to-eat popcorn made with avocado oil and French sea salt that contains 35 calories per popped cup that doesn’t sacrifice on flavour or real, simple ingredients.”
Other Angie’s Boomchickapop ready-to-eat popcorn flavours include butter caramel, chile lime and dark chocolaty sea salt drizzled kettle corn.
Conagra also introduced a microwave popcorn range under the brand last year, available in three flavours: sea salt, real butter, and lightly sweet kettle corn.
The new sea salt air-popped popcorn has a suggested retail price of $3.49 for a 4.2oz bag. White cheddars puffs is available with a suggested price of $3.49 for a 6oz bag and $5.49 for a six-pack of 1oz snack bags.
Conagra Brands acquired Angie’s Artisan Treats, the maker of Angie’s Boomchickapop, from private equity firm TPG Growth in 2017.
