Lucky Elephant Popcorn
Lucky Elephant popcorn is a Canadian confection that has been on the snack food market since the 1950s. Not widely available in mainstream grocery stores or large convenience store chains, the treat has generally been more commonly found retailed at mom and pop grocery stores and neighbourhood food outlets, and more recently, online.
- The same factors that conspire to keep foods like Lucky Elephant Pink Candy Popcorn...from claiming a chunk of highly competitive shelf space in a real store -- relatively low demand, the cost of maintaining unsold inventory in a warehouse, the high price of shipping bulk orders to retail stores -- make these items the ideal sort of merchandise to move online.
Lucky Elephant popcorn is sold in 70g boxes. Similar in concept to Cracker Jack, the box contains sweetened popcorn and a small prize. The popcorn is not sweetened with caramel, however, but with a pink candy coating. There are also no peanuts in the package.
Lucky Elephant is produced and distributed by Super-Pufft Snacks Corporation of Toronto, Ontario. Lucky Elephant is also a Trademark of Poppa corn corp.
