Caffeinated Popcorn Keeps Movie Buffs Buzzed

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new brand of popcorn promises to keep you from dozing off in the middle of a movie.

Buzz Popcorn is a microwave popcorn laced with caffeine meant to give folks a jolt similar to the effects of a soda.

Richard Davis created the snack after seeing too many people fall asleep in the middle of watching movies and figures it’s time something other than soft drinks gives people a buzz.

The caffeine is combined with salt crystals so the popcorn tastes normal, but Davis assures there’s not enough in there to get addicted.

Still, parents should give the popcorn to their kids in moderation, so they’re not bouncing off the walls right before bedtime.

The product will be made in the old Orville Redenbacher plant, and Davis thinks the popcorn legend’s ghost will be pleased.

Davis believes this is the key to getting the popcorn industry popping again, and other manufacturers will follow suit.
