Autumn is here, bringing cooler temperatures, falling leaves and – POPCORN SEASON. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts throughout the Northern Lights Council are starting to go door-to-door selling Trail’s End brand popcorn to fund their local Scouting activities. Many packs and troops rely on this annual sale to support their activities – like the popular Pinewood Derby and camp – throughout the entire year. The sale also allows individual Scouts to earn prizes and scholarship money for college. On average, 70 percent of all popcorn sales go directly to support local Scouting.

Trail’s End fans will find Scouts selling all of their favorites, including microwave popcorn in Butter Light, Kettle Corn and Unbelievable Butter flavors, as well as signature snacks like Classic Caramel Corn, Caramel Corn with Almonds & Pecans, Double Caramel Crunch (new this year), White Chocolatey Pretzels,  Chocolately Triple Delight, Cheddar Cheese Corn (new), Chocolate Lover’s Collection, Cheese Lover’s Collection and more.

In addition, the Northern Lights Council has again partnered with Trail’s End Popcorn, Support Our Military Troops Program that gives consumers the chance to donate $30 or $50 in addition to their regular popcorn purchase.  Trail’s End ships the popcorn directly to active duty troops and their families.  The Scouts want to help support those who are sacrificing so much to keep us safe.  In 2011, the Northern Lights Council shipped $73,220 worth of popcorn overseas to help support the Troops!  Plus, the Council gave popcorn to the local military bases in Fargo and Minot, for a total of $81,125.
