After two kids & nearly 18 years of a successfull business, Dave & Cathie never grow tired of seeing their fun business grow & are looking forward to keeping it in the family by one day passing it along to their children, Victoria Lewis (Manager) & Zach Lewis.

With well over 350 flavors created over the years & an average of 50 different flavors in store daily, you are sure to find your favorite! 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 husband visited three times and honeymooned in Galena. He died from kidney cancer and my sister died from cancer two months later. Both of them loved your popcorn and I moved to Vegas. I want to thank you for your fast service to my order and your hospitality. I can eat popcorn and remember all the fun times we had in your little town. Thanks again.
  • Walking in the door ya get a sample of fresh caramel corn. Then you see shelves and more shelves and then barrels of popcorn. Then it hits ya...there is a tall gentleman behind the counter trying to coax and entice ya into spending all your hard earned money on popcorn. I'm pretty sure he had to have sold cars at one time. Well doesn't matter how many customers he harassed people including me were emptying there life savings just to buy some of this amazing popcorn. I walked out with the Hot Cinnamon flavor. Side note they didn't sell plain popcorn. The guy yells at my wife saying you would go to Baskin Robbins and buy Vanilla. Boy was he ever wrong, that's exactly what she would buy!
