Concession Food Industry Leader Releases New Product to Meet Government Nutrition Guidelines for Schools

Concession Food Industry Leader Releases New Product to  Meet Government Nutrition Guidelines for SchoolsThe launch of the USDA Smart Snacks in School program has created a challenge for schools to meet the new national nutrition standards. The Cincinnati-based concession industry leader, Gold Medal Products Co. has responded by introducing SunnyPop™—a popcorn snack that’s popular with students, yet still meets the national requirements.

Popcorn has always been a best-seller for schools. But many schools actually had to stop selling popcorn in their lunch rooms because they didn’t have a product that met the new standards.

"With SunnyPop™, it’s the best of both worlds. It meets the needs of schools and also gives students what they want—a food that’s fun and tastes good," says Gold Medal Vice-President, John Evans, Jr.

The hallmark of SunnyPop™ is its simplicity. It’s just three ingredients: popcorn, oil and salt. And it offers some of the most sought-after nutrition benefits:

  • whole grain
  • gluten-free
  • non-GMO
  • 0g trans fat

A detailed chart is available, which outlines how SunnyPop™ compares to the Smart Snacks in School requirements.

SunnyPop™ is ideal for any environment that caters to children, including schools, daycares, museums, parks and recreation centers. It is also beneficial for those who must have a high attention to nutritional value, such as hospitals, senior centers, retirement communities and fitness complexes.
