The company says the caramel corn isn't safe, but all the microwave Trails End popcorns are safe.

Our BSA council dumped Trails End. We sell Camp Masters. I have not checked the ingredients list yet.

I'm going to call on this one as DS has now become a Cub Scout (I'm sure I'll post elsewhere on this).

Anyone have any new info on the microwave popcorn before I call on this?

I didn't call this year. I still have cub scouts, but I'm burned out on fundraisers!

I already threw out the order form, so I'm going by memory. It does have an allergy warning on the order form, not by any specific product, so it gave me the impression it was a general statement for all the products on that form. I thought of looking into it further, but decided that if my DS didn't want to sell it, then it wasn't worth the effort.

We have used the microwave popcorn from Trails End. I have a December 2004 email from the company stating that the microwave products are free of peanuts, nuts and eggs.

Thanks everyone. I don't intend to have DS go all out selling, but we'd like to buy some from him. It makes more sense than buying it from the grocery store, and I can't imagine that the regular microwave wouldn't be safe, but one can never make assumptions about these things . . . .

We are sick of selling. We did minimal on gift wrap (last year we lost money on the deal!), and we're "saving" people to ask for his Million Minute Reading for ---oh, I'm at a loss, but the charity where you "buy" animals to send overseas to help families raise the animals, and it becomes a self sustaining thing. My migraine medicine prevents me from thinking of simple words these days!! It's a great charity, and last year his school raised tons of money--and read tons of minutes in the process. What a win/win!

Anyway, I'm planning on writing a donation check for whatever 30% DS would sell of the popcorn that would go back to his den or pack or whatever. And then we'll buy popcorn if it's safe. Back in the prechildren days when we bought from every kid we knew, Boy Scout popcorn actually tasted better than the stuff we bought at the store.

Tidina, were they eating a prepopped mix or had they popped the microwave kinds? We just ordered a large pack of the lightm which was fine last year. I hope it is okay. Dh did it and said he checked the label. If he didn't, I would think my neighbor selling it did, she is pretty good with that. Her son was selling it. I will post what I find out after we get it delivered and I email. becca
