CELEBRATE THE REUNION

MIKE AND IKE® are back together with a cool new look and enhanced flavors.

 



Who made movie popcorn?
The New York Times
In the 1920s, movie palaces rose up around the country like so many portals into a glamorous world. After you bought a ticket, you might pass through gilded archways and ascend a grand staircase lighted by a crystal chandelier to find your velvet seat. Eating was not meant to be part of the experience, says Andrew F. Smith, author of "Popped Culture: A Social History of Popcorn in America." Theater owners feared that audiences would strew popcorn and peanuts on those crimson carpets. They hung signs discouraging people from bringing in food from vendors parked outside and didn't sell it themselves.

Choosing the right font for your brand
By Jessica Taylor
Whether you’re coming up with a new logo, business card, brochure or website, fonts can say a lot about you and your business. Typography helps create an experience for your audience before they have even read a word; it tells a story about you and your business.
