2017 Popcorn is here!



Out with the old and in with the new isn’t just for New Year’s anymore! With this year’s popcorn campaign, we bid a fond farewell to jalapeno cheddar and welcome what is sure to be a new favorite—sea salt caramel! We tried to interview people from popcorn kick-offs about what they think of the new flavor, but their mouths were too full to answer!

In addition, this year’s $700 prize is sure to knock the socks off of everyone—a remote control race car from Fast and Furious. Many districts have had the car out and driving at events, and boy does it go!

Popcorn 2017 not only brings new flavors, but almost 20 new units selling popcorn. That means new customers throughout the council, new events and activities funded through popcorn, and new faces enjoying the flavor.

This year, Sioux Council has provided more resources for increased sales. Districts have instituted incentives, mystery houses, and great new kick-off events. And, video trainings were introduced, for youth and adults to learn best practices for maximum sales. Units have also been encouraged to focus on a "best of three years" goal—that is, match the BEST sale you have had in the past three years. If every unit will simply match their best sale, council-wide, that will be an additional $100,000 in unit accounts to use for the boys!

Popcorn deliveries will occur the week of Sept 25; sales start Sept 28. Be sure to watch the selling tips videos at . Here are a couple of sales tips to get everyone started:

 Try selling on Saturday mornings about 10 – 10:30 and again 2-2:30 in your neighborhood. Why? Popcorn is a GREAT football food!

 Never ask if someone wants to buy popcorn, Always ask if they would like to support scouting and scouting adventures!

 If you don’t have a flavor someone wants, take their order! Never let someone walk away!

 Did you know that scout sales donated over 6 pallets of popcorn to military personnel in our council! Military donations are GREAT!
