Better For You!

Trail’s End has reduced the saturated and trans-fats, sodium, sugar and calories in all their products by using canola oils and natural tapioca syrup as a natural sweetener. These changes result in healthier popcorn and more importantly better flavor.

Better Packaging

Trail’s End has also redesigned their packaging for easier product identification that is environmentally friendly and is resealable to keep products fresher longer.  You will also find that it is easier to store, transport and you get more popcorn in every bag. Along with the change is an increased awareness of Scouting, the package is practically a billboard for the Scouting story.

- Scouts can become a member of the $600 Club! Just sell $600 in popcorn, earn a  Special Bonus Award!!!


- $2,500 College Scholarship Club: 6% of retail sales will be put in an interst bearing account at Trails End on the year you qualify. Scout will earn 6% of any dollar amount sold each year after the qualifying year.
