When you are given an abundance of options between Cheezy Caramel, French Vanilla, Spicy Italian, Kitchen Sink, Bacon & Cheddar & much MUCH more, how could you not leave with a unique gourmet treat?

  • My wife and I recently were married in Galena and were looking for ideas for snacks for our reception. We were given the suggestion of this place from her mother. While we visited the wedding venue before our date, we made it a point to stop by and try some flavors before making a decision. The staff was so nice and you could tell they loved serving their famous popcorn. We were so delighted to sample some of the flavors and there were so many to choose from! Everything from sweet, to salty, to savory, this place has a flavor for everyone. We decided to order a large batch to serve as favors for our wedding. The Popcorn company offers different packaging and graphics and you can choose a variety of flavors. We decided to go with five flavors and they were able to customize each with our wedding logo and a neat quote. The popcorn turned out to be a HUGE hit at the wedding. It was the one thing that every guess continued to mention well after the wedding. We were so grateful for the care and time they put into making our big day so special. Next time we visit Galena, this place will be stop number one!
  • My heart sunk when we discovered a new shop where our beloved popcorn company used to be! Fortunately it just moved down the street. What a place. The same great popcorn styles and craft soda that you expect with a brand new look!
