chipping in: katy perry roars for local high school

it’s not everyday that an international popstar appears at a local high school to perform a private concert.  but that’s exactly what happened in lakewood, colorado today, when katy perry arrived (on her birthday) to reward the lakewood high school students for creating the winning gma music video for “roar” — her hit song from her incredible new album, prism.

the students of lakewood submitted their winning lip dub video, and got our attention by involving the entire school! we’re talking every club. every athletic team. the entire student body! the best part? they created all this awesomeness in just one take! we couldn’t believe it and neither could katy.  she was so impressed, that she named the lakewood tigers “the school with the loudest roar” and ultimately, the champions.

as if we didn’t like these kids enough already, the tigers are using this opportunity to give back to their community by raising funds for colorado’s flood relief.  and they are challenging every high school in america to do the same!  talk about popstar status!  to support this incredible cause, popchips donated 2,000 bags of katy’s kettle corn to lakewood high school.

katy perry & popchips launch katy’s kettle corn in the uk

katy's kettle corn popchips launch in the uk!we got such an outpouring of love for katy perry’s katy’s kettle corn popchips flavour when we launched in the u.s. earlier this year, well, we just had to share the bag. so now, we’re excited to  introduce katy’s kettle corn, a sweet & salty popped corn chip, to the uk!

like everything katy perry does, she wanted to create a unique flavour with her signature stamp that captured both her passion for popcorn and craving for the classic sweet and salty flavour of kettle corn. the result is katy’s kettle corn, a naturally delicious popped corn chip with just the right balance of sweet and salty. and with less than half the fat of fried crisps, fewer calories and none of the fake colours or flavours that give snacking a bad name, they are as irresistible as katy’s #1 hits.

our uk snackers can find katy’s kettle corn at sainsbury’s across great britian now, and soon at boots locations nationwide.

click here for the full scoop on katy’s kettle corn popping into the uk. and be sure to follow us on twitter, instagram, and down the snack aisle, of course!
