Cranberry Popcorn Bars

Between work and home, I eat popcorn every day. Our company makes old-fashioned stovetop poppers. We're in the heart of popcorn country and are always trying new popcorn varieties and seasonings. These snack bars are crisp and tangy.—Wabash Valley Farms, Steve Dold, Monon, Indiana

    My 3 yr old son helped me make these, and we all really like them. The salty, sweet, tangy combination of flavors is great.
