Add some sugar or spice to your next at-home movie night, or give a tasty gift to a friend or loved one with a bag of handcrafted popcorn from POParella’s Gourmet Popcorn & Treats in Frisco Square, near Olympus Boulevard. Whether you’re into sweet, savory, classic, or crazy flavors, popcorn from this local, family-owned business has the delicious crunch you’ve been craving. Here are our top five picks.
Andes’ Chocolate Mint Popcorn
If you love popcorn and you love peppermint patties, this is the popcorn for you. Classic caramel popcorn gets a serious upgrade with the addition of creamy dark chocolate and peppermint, topped with chunks of Andes’ mint candy. Shut the front door!
Caramel & Pecans Popcorn
What could be better than classic caramel corn? It’s POParella’s Caramel & Pecans Popcorn. Caramel and fresh chunks of pecan nuts are added while cooking to make this insanely good treat. You’ve got the sweet, gooey goodness of the caramel coating, plus the double crunch of the popcorn and nuts. You can also get caramel corn with almonds, cashews, or peanuts if you prefer. Go nuts!
Dill Pickle Popcorn
Salty, tangy, and tart. The Dill Pickle Popcorn at POParella’s is all that, with a great crunch. No wonder it’s a bestseller. Pickle fans (or those who love salt and vinegar chips) will go gaga for this one.
Made with a blend of cayenne, habanero, jalapeño and ghost peppers, this one is packing some serious heat. If setting your mouth on fire is your jam, you can also try the Hot Cinnamon, Spicy Cheese, Jalapeño Kettle, Texas Jalapeño, or Texas Nacho Jalapeño Popcorn. Just keep that glass of water handy!
Candy Corn Popcorn
Get into the Halloween theme with this seasonal popcorn available in October. It’s a mix of vanilla popcorn and candy corn coated in white chocolate, and then drizzled with an orange-colored birthday cake candy coating. What a fun sugar rush!
Don’t limit yourself to just one flavor. Try some samples and get a variety of your favorites to mix and match at home. POParella’s also sells a great selection of candy and makes fantastic gift baskets. You can even order online if you can’t make it into the store, and they’ll deliver right to your door.
