- Quintessential hometown popcorn shop on a picture-perfect street in historic Geneva. Our pick of the five flavors was the warm, fresh Kernel’s Kettle Pop—a melt-in-your-mouth morsel with an ethereal sweet-salty glaze. – Denise Peñacerrada, Chicago
- First off, you could smell the amazing aroma a block away. Try the different samples, but the best is the caramel and cheese. It is the BEST popcorn we have ever had and we will now be lifetime customers. – Gabby, Geneva location, Yahoo! Local
