Are PopCorners Gluten Free?

PopCorners are a tasty combination of chips and popcorn in snack form. This snack company is owned by Pepsi.

Here’s more from the company: “WE BELIEVE EVERY DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY. FOR US, THAT STARTS AT THE SOURCE. Our delicious snacks are air popped and never ever fried.Not only are PopCorners never fried, we have no artificial flavors or colors. Plus, we’re incredibly tasty.”

Let’s find out if this popular popcorn style snack brand contains any wheat or gluten ingredients . . .

Are PopCorners Gluten Free?


To be honest, I think PopCorners does a really bad job of explaining if their products are gluten free. On their FAQs page of their website they state: “To check if your PopCorners® are gluten free, please reference each product’s ingredient statement and labels prior to consumption. We also recommend visiting PepsiCo Product Facts to check out ingredient labels. On PepsiCo Product Facts, you are able to filter by brand to find which PopCorners® products and flavors are gluten free.”

Essentially the classic, ‘check the label’ to see if our products are gluten free. They do state that certain flavors may contain gluten in this blog post they published. I find that to be super frustrating from a company the size of PepsiCo. However; after we did our own research, we could determine the following flavors are gluten free.
