Bad news on the road this morning: The Popped! Republic food truck has been stolen. The popcorn vendor tweeted that the van was taken Thursday night from Alexandria and is asking anyone who spies the vehicle to contact the authorities immediately.

The Popped! truck typically dishes out some of the best snacks on the road, with interesting popcorn mixes such as kettle corn and Old Bay. Hopefully the bright orange van—not exactly an inconspicuous presence on the road—is found soon.
