Americans love corn more than any other food, including Swiss cottage cheese and chocolate-covered fishing twine. Today’s Groupon gets you $20 worth of corn-edibles from Cornucopia for $10. Your autumnal cornhusk decorations will appear as poor exercises in corn-creativity after experiencing the vast possibilities within each Cornucopia kernel.
Corn has been inadequately represented through culinary history with meager dousings of butter and salt. The dedication of Cornucopia’s Nikki and Nadia has elevated the kernel to heavenable possibilities. Cornucopia offers more than 40 different colorful, gourmet popcorn flavors, including cheddar, jalapeño, loaded baked potato, pesto, Madras curry, Texas chili, cinnamon toast, watermelon, green apple, cherry, s'mores, vegan options, and many more. Nikki and Nadia spend significant time in their flavor lab, constantly concocting new palate pleasers with game-changing ingredients.
Each kernel is popped fresh daily in-store and made by the hands of Nikki and Nadia's friends, which happen to be attached to the arms of Nikki and Nadia's friends. One-gallon pails––perfect for your patriotic July gathering––run from $15 to $24 depending on flavor (you can mix and match), and small gift bags are priced from $4.75 to $7.25. There are sizes for every appetite, and with Father's Day and Flag Day right around the corner, there are plenty of popcorn gifting opportunities.
You must purchase your sweet maize treats at the store on Guadalupe Street, but delivery within a specified area is always an option for a few extra bucks (order must be $25 or more). Pre-orders are not necessary, but are greatly appreciated by the Cornucopia staff.

The drumroll of corn being popped or devoured constantly resounds through air scented with butter, cinnamon, caramel, and curry at Cornucopia Popcorn Creations. The crew embellishes popcorn with more than 30 unique flavors, which are divided into four basic categories: candied, chocolate, seasoned, and vegan or gluten free. The list includes everything from basic butter or cheese popcorn to snacks reminiscent of Red Hots or s’mores as well as dill-pickle popcorn that the Austin Chronicle called “amazing.” They also serve up seasonal flavors like pumpkin pie, caramel apple, and candy corn. Like the spark plugs of your rival’s car, the creative munchies can be packed into decorative bags and tins to make an ideal gift.
