Earlier this week I posted on my blog an item from Infogroup that declared Pittsburgh the number 10 city in the nation for beer lovers (Scroll down to see the post).
To explain its top ten rankings, Infogroup analyzed more than 15 million verified business database records to identify which metro areas with a population of at least one million residents are home to the most beer retailers and breweries, including craft and microbreweries.
If you like a bit of popcorn with your beer, Ips Snacks™ (www.ipsallnatural.com), has come up with the first and only protein popcorn on the market. With Americans consuming 16 billion quarts of popcorn a year, Ips Pop was a natural addition to the Ips Snacks protein line and takes this category leader from a single product company to a full line of protein snack solutions.
Ips Pop claims to be a delicious and healthy popcorn snack made with whey protein and each serving includes 5 grams of protein- the same amount as 20 almonds. Made with non-GMO corn, gluten free, available in 2 delicious flavors, and only 150 calories per serving, this healthy alternative to traditional popcorn satisfies a multitude of dietary and snacking concerns.
Containing no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, Ips Pop – a Kosher product – is available in two varieties: White Cheddar (made with real cheese) and Classic Salted (salt and natural butter flavor). Single-ounce packages retail for $1.49; 5-ounce packages retail for $3.49. This newest addition was available in retailers across the country in mid-October
