Today's New Day began with a blast, as audience members received bags of G.H. Cretors popcorn to celebrate the 4th of July with a classic American snack. If the name Cretors sounds familiar, Charles Cretors invented a steam-powered machine in the late 1800's that not only popped popcorn, but roasted peanuts, chestnuts and coffee as well!

Audience members also received masks to promote the new movie The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp. The film opens tonight at theaters everywhere. For more information about The Lone Ranger movie, please click here.
