Shirley's offers two flavors of the month in July: "Spicy Jalapeno," and "Berry Cherry"

Shirley's Gourmet Popcorn Co. has two flavors of the month in July, according to Pete Suter. The flavors are "Spicy Jalapeno," and "Berry Cherry."

Suter said this about Spicy Jalapeno: "Find a beach and grab a cold drink before you open your next tin or bag of this popular July flavor. The touch of our classic cheddar creates a smooth entry before the spice of the jalapeno explodes in your mouth. Come to think of it, you probably ought to grab two drinks before you sit down with this one."
