Fruity Trix Popcorn

I’m beyond thrilled to tell you guys about my newest partnership!

I’ve teamed up with General Mills, (Big G Cereals) to showcase the new fruitier taste of Trix cereal!

Fruity Trix Popcorn

That silly rabbit is celebrating 60 years as well as a brand new fruitier flavor, so I thought what better way to celebrate than with a big bowl of Fruity Trix Popcorn!?

You guys! This popcorn is super addictive. I covered the popcorn and Trix with a candy coating made extra flavorful by adding in a fruit flavored gelatin mix. It’s actually super easy to make this fun and colorful treat, and it’s also completely customizable too!

I used a lime, berry blue and a raspberry flavored gelatin mix to create a fun and fruity treat, but feel free to use any flavor (or color) that you desire. This would be perfect for coordinating a special treat for a themed party don’t you think?

I brought this popcorn mix to my daughter’s preschool graduation and I kid you not, people were astonished at how delicious this popcorn was. Everyone kept asking how on earth I gave it so much flavor, and “what are those crunchy fruity bits in there?!” 

It’s the Trix people!!

Did you know that Trix contains NO HFCS, and the first ingredient is always Whole Grain Corn? I had a friend over at my house the other day and we started talking about the cereal that we buy for our kids. I told her how much I love how ALL of Big G Cereals have whole grains as their first ingredient and she was shocked. She didn’t know that! Did you know that?

Next week I’ll be sharing another fun and fruity Trix inspired treat along with a Trix Party Giveaway!! So be sure to grab a couple boxes of the new fruitier tasting Trix, make this popcorn mix, and get ready for another great recipe!

Ok, ok… I guess you can eat it with milk and a spoon too. 😉

    Your instructions calls for corn syrup, your ingredients does not show corn syrup. Can you tell me if this is an error. Also what do I do with the honey? Sorry I am confused.

    1. Sorry Sandy! I had tried the recipe both ways, with corn syrup and honey. Both ways work, but I think I prefer the taste of the honey over the corn syrup. I’ve fixed this error in the recipe. Thanks for pointing it out to me!
