As someone who loves a good snack, I was thrilled to discover Prospector Popcorn. Not only is their popcorn delicious, but their mission to create competitive and inclusive employment for people with disabilities is truly admirable. It’s a win-win situation: I get to enjoy tasty popcorn while also supporting a great cause.
One of the things I love about Prospector Popcorn is their wide variety of flavors. While I’m a big fan of their Key Lime Pie, Pineapple Paradise, and Strawberry Shortcake flavors, they also offer classics like Butter and Kettle Corn, as well as unique options like Bacon Cheddar and Jalapeño Popper. And for those who can’t resist a little pumpkin spice, they have that covered too.
But what really sets Prospector Popcorn apart is their commitment to creating employment opportunities for people with disabilities. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, their employees (or “Prospects”) are given meaningful work that allows them to live a higher quality of life. And as someone who has seen the talents and passions of people with disabilities firsthand, I know how important it is to provide them with opportunities to thrive.
Prospector Popcorn’s dedication to their mission doesn’t stop at their employees. They also believe in creating a positive moviegoing experience for their customers. Their popcornistas (yes, that’s a real job!) pop fresh popcorn daily and transform it into “sparkling showstoppers” that are worthy of a standing ovation. And as someone who loves going to the movies, I can attest to the fact that their popcorn is a popular part of the experience.
But Prospector Popcorn’s impact goes beyond the movie theater. They’ve expanded their operations to ship their popcorn worldwide, meaning that anyone can enjoy their tasty treats while also supporting a good cause. And with every bag of popcorn sold, they create more jobs for America’s most talented but underrepresented population.
I highly recommend trying Prospector Popcorn. Not only is their popcorn delicious, but their mission is important and worth supporting. By snacking on their sweet and savory combinations, we can all play a small part in creating a more inclusive and equitable society. And I promise, their popcorn is much better than their corny puns.
