A New Way to Use Glaze Pop®


We are proud that some of our best ideas come from our customers!

A Chicago-area popcorn shop wanted to run an innovative promotion related to breast cancer awareness month. They came to Gold Medal to find the best way to produce a popcorn with a vibrant, eye-catching pink color. Our concession experts went to work experimenting with different products. What we discovered was a new use for Glaze Pop®!

Glaze Pop® is a convenient mix normally used to produce sweet flavored popcorn straight from the popper. Now, you can incorporate those same delicious flavors into your candy glaze products and the results are absolutely amazing!

For example, in order to produce the bright pink color the customer needed, we used the Cherry Pink Glaze Pop® with the Basic Corn Treat Mix. In your corn treat cooker, simply directly replace the white sugar with Glaze Pop® and follow the standard corn treat cooking instructions. The finished product has the most robust colors and bold flavors. It is sure to attract your customers’ attention.

Some other combinations you can try include:

  • Milk Chocolate Glaze Pop® with Silky Chocolate Corn Treat Mix makes the most decadent chocolate popcorn mix.
  • A fun and flavorful fruity mix is Red Strawberry Glaze Pop® combined with Basic Corn Treat Mix. Plus, the color would make for a great Valentine’s Day red.
  • Mouths will water for Maple Syrup Popcorn made with Maple Glaze Pop® and Basic Corn Treat Mix. Try adding in walnuts for an unforgettable recipe.
  • Refreshing Vanilla Latte is our newest Glaze Pop® flavor. Make it even more rich and enticing by mixing it with the Basic Corn Treat Mix.

National Popcorn Day is coming up on January 19 and this would be the perfect time to launch your new candy glaze popcorn!
