Artisan popcorn maker Populence teamed up with the New Zealand winery Kim Crawford to create two new wine-soaked popcorn flavors: Pinot Noir Chocolate Drizzle and Sauvignon Blanc Kettle, ABC-News reported.

“I love combining organic heirloom and whole ingredients to create gourmet popcorn flavors. To me, the perfect snack satisfies both a sweet and salty crunch but remains low in calories, low in fat, and is gluten-free made with all-natural ingredients,” Maggie Paulus, founder of Populence, said in a statement. “I began making my own gourmet popcorn flavors to satisfy my cravings in a healthy way.”

The Sauvignon Blanc offers a zesty, lemony taste, while the Pinot Noir Chocolate Drizzle plays to the more indulgent. Both are meant to be paired with their respective wines, Paulus said.

A 1-gallon tin costs $28 in Populence’s retail store and $35 on its website, Paulus said.
