Chicago Popcorn Maker Argires Snacks Drops Digital “Popcoin” Art as NFT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alsip, IL April 1, 2021 – Argires Snacks, the Chicago popcorn underdogs known for their Outrageously Good popcorn and nuts, have dropped their first “Popcoin” as an NFT, bringing their number of cryptocurrency releases to a total of 1.
“Just like every one of our Outrageously Good Cheddarcorn kernels, each Argires Snacks Popcoin non-fungible token packs more cheese per ounce than Ethereum, BTC, and Dogecoin combined” said Argires Snacks President and founder, George Argires.
“Ever since we released our Savory Hot Cheezy Cheddarcorn this year – we’ve been looking for the next hot thing” says Argires.
While the company has historically been known for its Big Blue Bags sold outside Wrigley Field, they’ve been shaking things up in the midwest popcorn market with flavors like Maximum Munch Caramelcorn, Outrageously Cheezy Cheddarcorn, and their recently released Savory Hot Cheezy Cheddarcorn. They are currently one of the fastest growing shelf stable popcorn brands in the region.
And now that the company is making its digital debut into cryptocurrency – they hope to spread big taste and big smiles across borders and throughout the value chain.
Argires Snacks’ Outrageously Good products can be bought factory direct online from their ecommerce platform Anuts.com, or on shelves around the Chicago area at Albertsons, Jewel Osco’s, Butera, Pete’s Market and other retailers. Their limited run of 100 NFT “Popcoins” can be purchased from OpenSea or by visiting Argires-Snacks.com/popcoin.
