Competing against more than 240 entries, the Family Time Snacks Perfect Popper popcorn box won the PPC’s President’s Award and its Innovation Award. The package concept includes a flat paperboard carton with a pouch of microwave popcorn glued inside. The consumer only needs to “pop-up” the carton and microwave it. The carton fills with popcorn, the lid peels back, and it becomes an instant bowl.
