Popcorn was discovered accidentally in 1692, when early American settlers tried to burn the unfamiliar corn plant as a witch. Though most of these pioneers were then burned by witches who accused them of practicing humancraft, their beloved buttery snack remains, and today’s Groupon treats you to a bounty of it: for $13, you get three large bags of gourmet popcorn (a $26.93 value), which can include one bag from the chocolate-decadence line, at Kernel Colada's Snack Shack in Columbia City. Today's deal is valid in-store only, where you’ll get to sample as many flavors as you like before buying.
From the always-sunny atmosphere of their tropical-themed beach bodega, father-daughter duo Gary and Lindsey Hively continue their mad quest to capture all the world’s foods into popcornable form. So far, they’re up to 42 flavors, including peanut butter and jelly, loaded baked potato, and funky monkey. As you soak in the tropical sunset painted on the wall above your table, match it with an appropriate flavor such as sunset orange, piña colada, Tahitian vanilla, or the Trix-like Fruitopia. But save a bag for a dessert option from the chocolate-decadence line, each of which are hand-decorated with drizzles of chocolate or icing, then bedazzled with chewable jewels such as sprinkles, marshmallows, or almonds. Lingering over a sack of strawberry cheesecake, birthday cake, or s’mores popcorn also gives you more time to make sweet, sweet nose-love to the shop’s fresh buttery aromas.
Each bag contains 16 cups of popcorn, providing more than enough detonated corn ordinance to share with a wacky sitcom neighbor. Turn any living-room movie night into a dinner theater with a three-course meal from Kernel Colada's Snack Shack.
