Share This!Earth popcorn is so terrestrial! With Kat Saka’s Kettle coming soon to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to serve the popcorn of Batuu, it’s no surprise that Pandora has also decided to get in on the popcorn action. At Windtraders, the retail establishment in Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you can find Pandora-themed prepackaged popcorn. And yes, it’s Na’vi Blue.As alien as the popcorn looks, the flavors sound pretty tasty if you’re a fan of sweet, flavored popcorn: blueberry-almond. Although I personally prefer the blending of cherry-almond, this flavor combination also makes for a great blend, and the popcorn includes dried blueberries and almonds. Each bag is $7.Is this a flavor of popcorn you’d want to try, or would you want to stick with the other flavors of prepackaged popcorn found at Walt Disney World? Let us know in the comments.

(Kelly O’Day photo)“Mason capitalized his own strengths by outscoring Gerber on his feet,” Stratford coach Joe Schwabe said. “This strategy didn’t allow Gerber to score anything but one point escapes from the bottom as Kauffman showed a command performance.”Sophomore Kamren Bornbach (41-3) finished off the quadruple with a 5-0 whipping of Henry Fielding (44-2) of Shiocton in the 182-pound final. Bornbach took fifth at state last year.“Kamren didn’t want to go out without matching his teammates, and he had Fielding on his back in the second period with a cradle and never looked back,” Schwabe said.“It is great that it worked out so well that all four finalists were able to win. Seldom does it end the way we’d like, and the nice part is two are freshman and two are sophomores.”Auburndale’s Wyatt Weiler lost his bid for a Division 3 state title, losing 7-5 to Jared Roen (42-3) of Riverdale 7-5.
