‘Poptober’ is here for area Boy, Cub Scouts

MANISTIQUE – October is “Poptober” for the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Ventures in the Hiawathaland District. The troops will be selling Trails End Popcorn, as well as Interstate batteries.

The scout organization receives 70 percent of the selling price of the products. Half of funds received go toward activities and supplies for the packs, troops, and crews, while the other half supports the facilities, programs, and services of the Bay Lakes Council.

In addition to the traditional products like microwave popcorn and caramel corn, new flavors are available this year. They include ready to eat bags of Sour Cream and Onion and Buffalo Cheddar Cheese and a tin of Bacon Ranch corning in a Green Bay Packer tin.

Consumers may also order products to be sent to service women and men throughout the world.

In addition to the Trails End products, most units are simultaneously selling Interstate batteries.

Scouts will be taking orders in neighborhoods and selling directly at various retail outlets and community events through Oct. 20.
