Oprah likes Utah’s Pop Art Snacks
Utah’s Pop Art Snacks, makers of gourmet flavored popcorn such as rosemary with Italian truffles and Thai coconut curry, are featured in the August issue of "O, The Oprah Magazine." Pop Art’s nori sesame popcorn, one of six flavors the company makes, was named "The Find!" of the month. Made with toasted seaweed and sesame seed, editors praised the popcorn for being "rich in umami, the undefinable savory quality — also found in mushroom and cheeses — that makes these flavors so deliciously addictive." Pop Art is sold in stores across the country and in Utah. Find a location at popartsnacks.com. A 5-ounce bag costs around $4.50
