Located in historic Bricktown, Good People Popcorn invites visitors to enjoy volumes of fluffy, freshly popped kernels in its cozy, family-owned space with exposed brick walls. The shop crafts its gourmet corn kablooeys with real butter and local sugar and envelops them in a cornucopia of scrumptious flavors such as caramel, cheese, cinnamon, and chili cheese. Snackers can pull up a chair and enjoy a hot bag of classic butter ($1–$2), kettle ($2–$3), or cinnamon ($2.50–$6) corn with a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade or hot apple cider. One-gallon tins filled with butter ($18) or a toothsome mix of crispy caramel and savory cheddar ($24) corn let patrons dash off with munchies to go, as well as a vast supply of fodder for DIY decorative garlands. Practical and pleasing mementos, such as men's and women's T-shirts ($10) and insulated travel mugs ($5) bearing Good People Popcorn logos, commemorate the art of this treasured treat, discovered after food scientists' disastrous attempts to pop eggplant and rutabaga.
