Evil villain robot Mega-Corn the Destroyer has come to planet Earth to eat all the world’s popcorn, so Earth has called upon The Popcorn Squad, a group of adventurous Scouts with super powers, to stop Mega-Corn before Earth is eradicated of popcorn! Trail’s End Popcorn has supported Scouts like you for over 35 years and was the first national fundraising partner with the Boy Scouts of America.  Units have raised more than $4 billion nationwide with Trail’s End to support their adventures. Will you join forces with us this Fall and help fund your exciting Scouting adventures?

2017-popcorn-patchIn addition to raising funds for your Unit, Scouts will be awarded prizes in our NEW prize program and Top Sellers of popcorn and peanuts will earn the opportunity to attend Galactic Blast Day, launch rockets and meet their favorite Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion!

Your Unit will receive Trail’s End Popcorn sales materials and Whitley’s Peanut sales materials when you attend training.  For more information on popcorn and peanut fundraising, email
