Although corn is now a pop icon, it built its fan base through standing gigs in breakfast cereals and furtive poems published under the pseudonym C. Cob. Celebrate its starchy legacy with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of popcorn at Knights Gourmet Popcorn.
Knights Gourmet Popcorn's snack sages forge fresh, daily-made treats with trans-fat-free oils and gourmet kernels in a kaleidoscope of sweet and savory flavors. Classic corn such as the cholesterol-free lightly salted ($2.25 for 6 oz.)—which garnered a healthy nod from the author of The Thin Commandments—and toffee-infused caramel corn ($5.25 for a 24 oz. bag) fill taste buds with nostalgia for the state fairs, movie theaters, and flaming cornfields of their youth. Flavor cocktails such as the Milwaukee mix ($4.99 for 10 oz.) prime palates with a trio of salty, sweet, and savory tastes, and the deluxe jalapeño cheese ($5.19 for 7.5 oz) peppers kernels with fiery aromas. Knights Popcorn is popped throughout the day, keeping a fresh supply of corn for immediate consumption or within a variety of gift tins ($16.99–$24.99 for two gallons), which make thoughtful housewarming presents for lonesome scarecrows.
Knights Gourmet Popcorn
The ping of popping kernels and aroma of simmering caramel drift out of Knights Gourmet Popcorn throughout the day, heralding the arrival of the shop’s latest batches of fluffy popcorn. This commitment to freshly popped kernels has earned Knights Gourmet Popcorn the spotlight on Fox 6 Now, and a devoted following since the shop’s inception in 1952. Popcorn pros coat popcorn kernels in sweet and savory toppings such as cheddar cheese, buttery toffee, and Cajun seasonings. Though the shop specializes in indulgent flavors, health-conscious patrons can veer toward cholesterol-free treats that garnered a nod from the author of The Thin Commandments as the healthiest alternative to sprinting through a corn maze.
