For more than 30 years, The Popcorn Factory has been the “popcorn authority” with our impressive collection of crowd-pleasing gifts and great-tasting snacks. We start with the finest corn grown right here in the USA and transform each kernel into premium popcorn using 100% corn oil and infusions of the very tastiest flavors. The Popcorn Factory pops over 1 million pounds of popcorn per year, and all of our popcorn is Kosher OU-D.
During the holidays my Dad would always bring home big tins of popcorn from the office. It was always exciting for me because it wasn’t often that we had popcorn and we would sit and eat it until we were sick.
Now I am a grown, married woman with four children. My love affair with popcorn has evolved and, I am almost embarrassed to admit this but, our family goes through a 50 lb bag of popcorn kernels in about 2 – 3 months time. We have popcorn almost every single night. I see the looks of withdrawal in my children’s eyes when I neglect to pop that fragrant snack after the hubbub of the day has died down. I think that might put us in the realm of popcorn connoisseurs or maybe even popcorn experts, don’t you think?
The Popcorn Factory generously offered to send us a 2 gallon tin in a 3 way container to sample. Well, I knew my head would roll if I said no… so of course I said yes!
It arrived in perfect time. My sister in law and her family had just moved back into town and we were having them over in a matter of minutes when our favorite delivery man in the big white truck pulled up. You should have seen us scrambling trying to be the first to open the tin! This was Emma & Ethan’s first taste of “gourmet” popcorn (that stuff that “the marts” sell at holidays does not count as gourmet popcorn) and their eyes lit up when we gave them their first pieces.
The smell coming from the tin reminded me of my childhood and of holidays with the family. The taste was fantastic! I am not a “caramel girl”, but I liked this caramel… it wasn’t too sweet. The cheese powder was enough to make me say “ummmmmmm” while I was licking it off my fingers. Emma & Ethan thoroughly enjoyed the butter popcorn. By the end of our visit that night… the tin was almost empty *sniff sniff*.
The Popcorn Factory has a tin for just about every occasion, all at reasonable prices!
A 2 gallon 3 way container runs $29.99
