Popcorn lovers (and who isn’t a popcorn lover?), I have found the best of the best in popcorn. I met the folks at Popcornopolis at the Summer Fancy Food Show in NYC this past summer and was completely WOWED by their products. Seriously, they’ve been described as the “Prada of popcorn” and it’s no lie. The BEST I’ve ever had. Let me share what I learned at the show about this brand, and then show you our favorite flavors (because they have over 20 of them!).
One of the things that really sets Popcornopolis apart from other brands is that their product is both a snack and a gift. These bigger bags, which you can find in Costco, Sams, Kroger, and a bunch of other retailers, are perfect for snacking. They are SO good, and the reason why is that all Popcornopolis products are made with all-natural ingredients, certified gluten-free, and all of their corn is non-GMO, too. High quality ingredients = high quality popcorn.
I met Mike Arnold at the show, VP of Sales and self proclaimed Popcorn King (love it!). He told us all about the Popcornopolis brand and what makes it the best. I mean, one taste of the samples they had available and I was sold!
These are the more ‘gifty’ varieties of Popcornopolis. You can see there are a bunch of amazing flavors here and check out the cone-shaped packaging! This is what makes this brand stand out first, even before you taste it.
I love the packaging not only because it’s fun and unique, but also because it really does help the popcorn stay fresher longer. The packaging, combined with the use of 100% pure coconut oil to cook the popcorn, means these bags stay fresh for up to 9 months!
After being introduced to the brand at the show in NYC, I was sent a variety of Popcornopolis products to try with my own family. We just happened to be heading to the beach that weekend so we took it with us (because we snack a lot of vacation!) and dug in.
The Nearly Naked popcorn is amazing. This is pure butterfly popcorn, coconut oil, and just a pinch of salt. Guilt free, all-natural snack that seriously tastes SO good. Look for the giant bags at your Costco and Sams stores.
I have to tell you, I think this is the thing I’m most excited about with Popcornopolis: gift ideas! You can see the Halloween packaging on the assortment above. Popcornopolis has a bunch of these for different occasions, PERFECT for gifting!!
Who else struggles to find something for the Easter basket, or for a Christmas gift, or a birthday treat? Trust me on this. ANYONE would love to receive one of these popcorn assortments. They are to-die-for delicious and just so much fun to open and try each flavor!
My daughter Lily tried to claim this as her own. Nice try, love. Hand it over. 😉
So, let’s talk flavors. Popcornopolis has 10 main flavors but a total of 22 in all. It’s so hard to pick a favorite but I’ll show you a couple we loved, and also mention that they do add special limited-time flavors throughout the year.
Look for Strawberries & Cream from Valentine’s Day through Easter; Gingerbread, White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice (OMG!), and Candy Cane Crunch over the holidays; and Lemon Crunch in the springtime.
This is the Zebra popcorn, their best seller! Caramel corn with white and dark chocolate. I mean…. There are no words. It’s insanely good.
We also received this larger, classic 5-cone assortment and this is where I found my favorite flavor: Cinnamon Toast!
Oh, you guys, it’s so, so good. It’s crunchy and sweet and just the right amount of cinnamonny (is that a word?). Ah, divine. I loved this one and tried my best to not let the kids have any. I failed but it was worth a shot!
Snacking on gourmet popcorn on the beach is a real treat. I promise the seagulls got not even one little crumb. The packaging makes it perfect for slipping into a bag to take on the go, and since you can seal it up with the little twist tie it comes with, nothing spills out.
Definitely look for Popcornopolis products in your local stores and remember it when you need a gift idea. It’s so fun and easy to shop through the creative (and delicious) Popcornopolis products on their website! A gift from them will be a total hit with anyone you are shopping for. The kids, a hostess gift, a teacher gift, anyone!
