Hello. We’re Butterkist – the folks behind the Nation’s favourite popcorn. And we’re here to make sure your popcorn is the best it can be. We want you to love the taste as much as we do.

That’s why we’ve spent the last 100 years perfecting our best ever recipe – using feedback from our lovely customers along the way. We think it’s perfectly popalicious and it’s from only 80 calories per serving, wow! But don’t just take our word for it, pop it for yourself!
