The Popcorn Factory gift ideas

It’s called a Family Pack and maybe that’s because it’s filled with lots of variety and when it’s out of sight, we miss it. This 2 gallon treat holds mini pretzels, a milk chocolate snowman, gummy Santas, Christmas Jelly Belly® beans, foil-wrapped chocolate ornaments, 2 Popcorn Balls, 2 gingerbread cookies and plenty of popcorn–Cheese, Cinnamon, White Cheddar and our signature S’Mores corn.

Searching for an impressive display of holiday cheer? Look no further. Here’s delicious popcorn (Cheese, White Cheddar and Chocolate Drizzled Caramel), buttermilk ranch pretzels, sour stars, 8 shortbread cookies, 9 chocolate caramels, 7 almond butter toffees and Jelly Belly® beans. Choose a 8-tier and receive a nut quartet with spicy and honey roast peanuts, mixed nuts and pistachios.

For a truly amazing selection of tasty treats, it doesn’t get any better than this 6 1/2 gallon tin packed with salsa and chips, chocolate chip cookies, spicy peanuts, buttermilk ranch pretzel twists, white chocolate mini pretzels, our famous fresh popcorn (Chocolate Drizzled Caramel, White Cheddar, Jalapeño and Cheese), chocolate snowflake ornaments, hard candies and super sour stars. Super is right!

These boxes are larger than those in our standard towers and are filled with every popcorn lover’s dream: fresh-popped and flavor-infused Butter, Cheese, Caramel, White Cheddar, Ranch, Chocolate Drizzled Caramel and Jalapeño popcorn, 6 secret-recipe Popcorn Balls, chocolate chip cookies and foil-wrapped chocolate ornaments.

Most of us have a very happy memory of building our first snowman of the season. Make your new memories even more special with this functional felt snowman hat. We’ve filled it with treats (Cheese and S’Mores popcorn, gummy Santas, Christmas Jelly Belly® beans, 2 snowman butter cookies and hot chocolate mix) and all the decorations you need to make a real snowman. Top it off with the hat. (Sorry, snow not included.)

Second only to Santa, this holiday icon is a true crowd pleaser. We’ve marched 16 of these handsome little gingerbread guys into our exclusive Holiday Topiary design tin. Each yummy cookie is individually wrapped and adorably decorated with sweet icing faces and buttons. But why gingerbread men have buttons without shirts, we’ll never understand.

Site of the Day: The Wine Messenger

The Wine MessengerThe Wine Messenger’s mission is to offer our customers a broad selection of high quality wines. These wines are individually selected from small growers around the world and delivered right to your door. We are lovers of the product as well as lovers of our site, and we firmly believe that you will be too.

Just a brief tid bit on one of the reasons that we love wine so much is for over 7,000 years, wine has benefited the human race. It has quenched thirst, and warded off disease, it has acted as an antiseptic in wartime, and as a muse to poets, writers, scholars, politicians and other prominent figures. What other man-made drink can claim such a record?
