Popping Into the Month of December-Peppermint Bark Popcorn with Cranberries and a Giveaway

Peppermint and snowflakes, gift boxes and wrapping paper-it’s Christmastime. Time to take in the seasons greetings and cheer and relax and enjoy the family time.

My family and I recently enjoyed the newest Disney movie Frozen last weekend. It was hands down my newest favorite Disney feature. The morals, the storyline, the whole thing was just pure hearted and uplifting. All the boys and I were cracking up the whole time-with a few happy tears, too! I would see it again in a heartbeat.

And of course we had our bucket of popcorn and bubbly soda. But what I love about these popcorn and movie nights is the closeness it brings to our family of famished fish. Tis the season right?

So I thought, why not spread some Christmas cheer with another seasonal popcorn giveaway-and a $25 gift card for Fandango! If you’ve never heard of Fandago, it’s a website with a smart phone app, that enables you to buy and reserve movie tickets at select theaters across the US in advance.

And you’ll also get all the fix-ins to make this month’s featured Popcorn Flavor, Peppermint Bark Popcorn with Cranberries.
