I was definitely looking forward to visiting Just Poppin Gourmet Popcorn. The service was great, I was immediately greeted with a friendly hello and a beautiful smile. The place appeared to be tiddy and clean. Unfortunately, the popcorn I received was not up to par, the cheese popcorn portion was stale and the combo didn't melt in my mouth. I have had other gourmet popcorn that did melt in your mouth and I was looking for the same. I went on my lunch break and it is a good distance from my job, so by the time I discovered my popcorn was stale I was almost back in the office. The location isn't close and it is hidden if you have never visited before. I like that they offer the money back guarantee; however, it isn't worth the drive to return it. I appreciate the experience to try it out, but will not return.

I originally order two of the certificates after speaking to Just Poppin about their location downtown. I was told that is was closed for only 2 weeks and after 6 months of calling their location in Stafford, Texas, I was told over and over that it will open within a few weeks. On 4/21/14 with no resolution - Danya at the Stafford location told me that she will ship me my popcorn to make up the groupon that I ordered on 4/22/14 to my home. As of today I still am without. I only ordered based on the downtown location since I don't live anywhere near Stafford.. Help!!

Location, location, location. That's the first thing any business owner should think about. Why in the world would someone open a gourmet popcorn retail store in the back of a car repair business park? It is very hard to get to, because one would not think to look for a retail shop in a car repair district. I wonder how long this business so going to last...

The location is unbelievably bad, it's way in the back of an industrial park, where car repair shops are, so it took me several times driving back and forth on the main road before it occurred to me that the shop is in this seedy looking area of town. For a medium size bag ($10), it is a very small bag. If I had paid the full price, I would be very upset. I definitely do not recommend this place at all.

The only thing I did not like was the groupin did not cover the order in full. If I wanted to benefit my full groupon, I paid tax, if not, I list part of the groupon becuz I was told I had to use it all in one visit. I have not experienced this before with other vendors using Groupon.

I tried their popcorn with a previous Groupon. Now I'm hooked. I try to always buy their Groupon when available but even without the Groupon when I'm in the mood for popcorn I head to Just Poppin for the best Chicago Style cheesy/caramel mix!!

The popcorn isn't at all what I had envisioned! All they hype, but they did not deliver. The caramel popcorn is wasn't good at all. I ordered the crazy-Pleasy mix...Its ok, but I won't be a repeat customer. Maybe it would be good if it were fresh!!

From Our Editors

When the owners of Just Poppin Gourmet Popcorn moved from Chicago to Texas, they loved everything about their new home, even the hot weather. But there was just one aspect of the Windy City they couldn't bear to leave behind: the popcorn. The family decided that Stafford might actually enjoy the sweet and salty snack and decided to take matters into their own hands and got poppin'. Today, staff at Just Poppin air pops kernels in small batches––a technique that doesn't rely on heavy oils–-and eschews powdered cheese for real cheese sauce, which they use to coat the kernels in their Pleasy Cheesy mix. Other flavors include popcorn coated in a blend of pecans and caramel, chocolate drizzle, or butter, as well as a Crazy-Pleasy mix featuring a classic Chicago-style blend of cheese and caramel corn. Custom tins are also available for customers who want to surprise someone with their three favorite popcorn mixes or a snack that doubles as an industrial-chic footstool.
