This cheesy bacon popcorn from CBPB is what’s up

Cool Bliss Pop Bliss on Neil Street pops fresh popcorn daily in addition to making other snacks and treats, but this cheesy bacon popcorn is fantastic. The popcorn has a deliciously cheesy dusting with a strong bacon flavor that will have you going back for more.

If you’re watching anything on tv today (or reading any online comment section these days), you need some popcorn. Instead of grabbing a bag off the shelf at a grocery chain, consider supporting this C-U Black-owned business and getting popcorn that is freshly popped right here in Champaign with 19 flavor options.

Find it on the shelf in the store with three size choices: $5 for a small, $8 for medium, and $12 for family sized. Check out all the popcorn flavors on the menu including Cajun, caramel pecan, buffalo ranch, and more.
