We know Dad is a master at the barbecue. Perfect for summer snacking, the Bourbon Barbecue popcorn marries tangy barbecue and dark notes of bourbon wrapped in smokey goodness. Maddy & Maize is a small-batch, gourmet popcorn company that was born when founder Brett Striker grew tired of plain popcorn and knew he could do better. This all-natural snack is for everyone, even those with dietary restrictions. The popcorn contains no artificial ingredients or colorings and is usually gluten- and peanut-free, as well as vegan.
