Smartfood Flamin' Hot White Cheddar Flavored Popcorn is free of artificial flavors and contains no added MSG, fitting in with Smartfood's longstanding commitment to using only premium ingredients.

While supplies last, Smartfood Flamin' Hot White Cheddar Flavored Popcorn will be available through the summer at select retailers, searchable via the store locator at The new popcorn flavor is available in multiple sizes with suggested retail prices from $1.89 to $3.99.

The Smartfood brand is one of the many brands that makes up Frito-Lay North America, the $14 billion convenient foods business unit of PepsiCo, Purchase, N.Y.
