Angry Birds, the challenging mobile game that took over our gaming lives is now an animated movie. Fans of the game get to watch the adventures of Red and his anger issues on the big screen as he deals with pigs that mysteriously appear on Bird Island.
Why not make a fun popcorn snack to celebrate the new movie? Candied popcorn is tossed with orange candy beaks, yogurt chip eyes and black licorice, which are perfect stand-ins for Red’s signature eyebrows.
Enjoy this popcorn treat with family and friends when Angry Birds hits theaters in May.
