oh, the weather outside is frightful, but our snacks are so delightful! and since san francisco doesn’t snow – we’ve decided to make our own! this holiday season, we have discovered the silver lining to a snow-less city…literally! whether you live in a winter wonderland or a tropical paradise, these DIY snowflakes, crafted from empty popchips bags, will surely add some festive flair to your holiday decorations. so let it pop!
you will need:
- 1 share bag of popchips (we used original)
1. snack on your popchips until the bag is empty.
2. cut along the seams of the bag to make one flat sheet.
3. cut six 5 inch x 5 inch squares out of the bag.
4. start with one square and fold it in half to create a triangle.
5. fold the two bottom corners together to make a smaller triangle (use tape if you need help holding the folds in place).
6. using the same bottom two corners, take one and fold it until the point lines up with the center of the triangle. repeat on the other side.
7. snip off the top with the two points to create a flat line.
8. now it’s time to get creative! cut into both sides of the triangle to create a snowy pattern.
9. unfold your snowflake and repeat with the other squares you cut earlier.
and don’t forget to share them with us too! pin, tweet, instagram and post your crafty creations using #popchips

as if chicago needs any more personality during the popular summer months, here comes along pitchfork music festival 2013 an eclectic mix of music, art, style and food that has been a midwest staple for many years now. here’s a taste of what popped at this year’s festival…
the popchips rescue station, courtesy of our friends at tuff shed, allowed us to partner with chicago’s habitat for humanity – rescuing fans with a cell phone charging station, games, and a place to relax.
most importantly, popchips and habitat for humanity are giving the shed back to a local chicago community after the festival!
popchips and habitat for humanity made sure vips & artists backstage, including sky ferreira and yo la tengo, helped chip in by contributing to auction items.
check out more pictures of #popchipstotherescue at pitchfork.
huge thank you to chicago, pitchfork music festival, music fans & concert goers! keep rocking out with you pop out!
don’t wait until the next festival to get rescued. click here to find popchips in stores near you!

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.
