Gold Medal Gourmet Popcorn Line Wins Best New Products Award 2021

Gold Medal Gourmet Popcorn Line Wins Best New Products Award 2021

In the highly competitive world of salty snacks, Gold Medal’s Gourmet Popcorn line just won recognition from Convenience Store News as a Best New Product for 2021.

Gold Medal’s Ready-to-Eat Gourmet Popcorn line was launched in August 2020. Known for the timeless taste you love, the line features five classic signature recipes: Old-Fashioned Caramel Corn, Cheddar Cheese Corn, Caramel & Cheese Corn Mix, Movie Theater Style Butter Popcorn, and Kettle Corn. Each comes in two sizes, a convenient grab-and-go snack size, and a larger shareable retail size.

According to Convenience Store News, judges taste-tested and evaluated products new to convenience store shelves for recognition in the 25th annual competition. The Best New Products Awards program recognizes the marketers that introduced the most innovative, high-quality products that meet consumers’ evolving needs and fit a convenience store’s value proposition. Entries were rated and awarded points based on the criteria of taste, value, convenience, healthfulness, ingredients, preparation requirements, appearance, and packaging. Judging was supervised and tallied by Past Times Marketing, a New York-based consumer research and product-testing firm.

“To earn this type of recognition really showcases the quality of our gourmet popcorn. The market is receptive and eager for snacks that meet their needs. Gold Medal’s goal is to leverage this opportunity and show retailers of all kinds that this is the type of snack food consumers want to buy,” stated Gold Medal president, Adam Browning.
