What is Puffcorn??

Old Dutch says it best..”Our popcorn is puffed full of pure goodness with a light and delicious popcorn flavor. It melts in your mouth and has no hard kernels or hulls. And like all Old Dutch snacks, our Puffcorn is always homegrown and delivered from the heart of the Upper Midwest.” If you can’t find Old Dutch Products in your area, Frito Lay has a snack called Chester’s Puffcorn

Chester’s Puffcorn is a great alternative to Old Dutch Puffcorn. It can be found throughout the US. Chester’s is also very inexpensive. Usually sold for around $2.00 a bag.
