Unlike hard candy, popcorn is known for its light, airy texture and not for warrants issued in its name from angry dentists. Crunch responsibly with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two 6.5-gallon gourmet popcorn canisters from Deanan Gourmet Popcorn (a $108.25 value) in Converse. This Groupon is valid in-store or online.
The heir of husband and wife duo Dean and Nanella Alexander, who began nurturing their gourmet popcorn business in 1979, helms Deanan Gourmet Popcorn, delivering cornucopias of treats popped from specialty mushroom-style kernels. Seven flavors anoint the characteristically large, round, and moist popcorn, tickling tongues with essences of rich caramel, tangy white cheddar, brooding dark chocolate, or real vanilla fashioned in varying colors based on the season and alignment of the planets. The succulent treat bursts forth from sturdy 6.5-gallon tins decorated in 18 designs that include such patterns as holiday tableaus of congregating Christmas trees or a coastal lighthouse against a snowy landscape. Mouths can revel in combinations of one, two, or three different flavors per tin, as each canister offers a configuration of dividers that keeps star-crossed flavors so close, yet so far away from one another.
