Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn

In the beginning, there were no snacks or joy or happiness. And then, in the kitchen, Mom spoke: “Let there be popcorn!” And there was Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn. 

Yes, like all good creation stories, this one begins with a Mom. A Mom in Asheville, North Carolina, whose love for homemade popcorn was too big not to share.

After years of making popcorn for after-school snacks and movie nights, Poppy’s friend suggested that she open her own shop. Poppy accepted the challenge and embarked on a journey that included countless hours of research and many batches of not-so-great popcorn (don’t ask her about the time she tried beer-flavored popcorn). And , on the seventh day, she got it juussst right.

We love all Poppy’s popcorn, but we think she especially nailed it with her “Poppy Mix,” an adorably designed bag of three a-maize-ing flavors: salted caramel, white cheddar and jalapeño cheddar. Each handful has the perfect balance of sweet, spicy and cheesy, making every bite a truly unique and Mouth-watering experience.
