Berco’s has long dreamed of creating the world’s best popcorn. So it wasn’t an accident that the fruit of their pursuit is no less than the world's most expensive kernels we’ve ever seen. Dubbed as the Billion Dollar Popcorn, a 6.5 gallon tin of this movie snack can set you back at $2500, a sum that's more than enough to pay your yearly life insurance plan.
The “billion” in Berco’s Billion Dollar Popcorn is actually a misnomer yet its whopping price tag is anything but. Worth $500 a tin (2 gallon), you get a bucket of caramel corn, each covered with 23-carat gold flakes and seasoned with hard-to-obtain Laeso salt, which was rumored to come from a Norse God who once lived in the Danish island of Laeso.
To be perfectly honest, it is foolish to buy Berco's for its salt and gold flakes alone. So I looked closer and saw the message on their branded tin can: "Changing Your World One Kernel At A Time." What does that mean?
I got curious so I read the complete product description.
Turns out, when you buy a 2-gallon tin of Berco's Billion Dollar Popcorn, the proceeds will be donated to a food bank that would feed about 200 mouths. It's not so bad an exchange, right?
So if you want to enjoy a movie night munching on the world's most expensive popcorn while helping the less fortunate at the same time, Berco's Billion Dollar Popcorn is worth checking out.
