Pony Express Council Starts Annual Popcorn Sale 

This fall, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in the Pony Express Council will introduce a whole new lineup of Trail’s End popcorn products for their annual fundraiser – the biggest change in 30 years. Since1980, Americans have supported Scouting with their purchases of Trail's End microwave popcorn and ready to eat popcorn treats. When their popcorn goes on sale September 25th, Scouts have every reason to believe the public will eat it up.

The sale this year occurs during the Boy Scouts of America's 100th anniversary.

The Trail’s End popcorn sale helps pay for local Scouting programs, and Scouts enjoy a great return on their sale, with more than 70% of the purchase price going to fund local Scouting.   The new Trail’s End products have better flavor, are better for you and come in all-new packaging. And consumers will, on average, get 20% more product than before.  Unbelievable Butter microwave, Butter Light microwave and ready to eat Cheese Corn are now made with canola oil, with 0 grams trans fat and low saturated fat.  The microwave products have new "Butter Burst" flavoring with a more robust butter flavor. Trail's End Caramel Corn is made with natural sweeteners, and Trail's End chocolate products contain no hydrogenated oils.

All of the ready to eat products have beautiful new packaging that's better for the environment because less packaging waste ends up in landfills. Traditional  metal canisters have been replaced with bags that are re-closable for freshness, a hit with consumers. All of the Trail's End packaging now displays photos of Scouts and describes the benefits of Scouting to boys and to their communities.

 This year, consumers can again donate popcorn to U.S. military personnel.  Doug Dent, of Trail's End Popcorn, explains, "This is the fourth year for our military program, and it's really a win-win-win situation. People can purchase popcorn for the men and women serving our country and support local Scouting at the same time. And they will know they're benefiting two great institutions in one generous act."

Good luck to the Scouts on their sale, and thank you for those who support Scouting with a popcorn purchase.
