Spicy, buttered popcorn is blended with habanero spiced almonds and mini turkey sausage bites to create a Spicy Popcorn Mix worthy of any man cave or savory popcorn lover.
Family time is important to my husband and me. It’s safe to say we spend a fair amount of time watching movies together with our daughter for movie night. We spend the evening together watching movies, interacting, and spending quality time with our daughter. Maybe even more than the time she spends with us, our daughter looks forward to the fresh, hot batch of buttered popcorn. I usually make up different flavor combinations – sweet or savory – to enjoy with the film. My daughter and I like our popcorn blends to include sweets while my husband is always asking for a savory blend.
Last week as my daughter and I were doing our weekly shopping at Walmart. We came across the following offer on our favorite popcorn: “Buy 2 Pop-Secret 10 count or 10+2 count bonus packs at Walmart between 12/7/16 – 1/8/17 and get an $8 credit toward a ticket to the Assassin’s Creed movie while supplies last.” My husband is a Sci-fi, fantasy movie, and video game addict. So when I saw that the Assassin’s Creed movie is coming to theaters December 21, 2016, I knew he would be interested. Needless to say, we swiftly purchased two bonus pack boxes of Pop-Secret popcorn and got busy redeeming the offer.
Note: your boxes do not need to be specially marked boxes to receive this offer. They need only be the appropriate sizes mentioned in the above offer.
It’s pretty easy to get the $8 credit, too! No mailing in UPC codes and waiting weeks for the coupon to arrive, you only send a text message and a photo of your receipt. It’s completely painless and hassle-free – though message and data rates may apply depending on your cellular plan. Below is an infographic outlining how to get your $8 credit:
With the purchase of two 10+2 bonus packs of popcorn, my daughter and I decided to make her Dad a popcorn combination he would thoroughly enjoy – Man Cave Spicy Popcorn Mix.
