Unpopped kernels of popcorn are known in the industry as "old maids," and are often found at the bottom of bowls whispering of vengeance while swathed in tattered, decades-old wedding gowns. Avoid their Dickensian fate with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of flavored gourmet popcorn from Metropolis Popcorn in Cuyahoga Falls. This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
Metropolis Popcorn, voted as a top-five dessert destination in the Akron-Canton area by CityVoters, crafts sweet and savory flavors of gourmet popcorn in small 5-gallon batches to ensure a radically fresh taste experience. Every kernel at Metropolis Popcorn is popped in cholesterol-free coconut oil before completing its metamorphosis into one of more than 50 flavors, including seasoned ($6–$10), candied ($8–$12), and deluxe varietals ($10–$16). Quality ingredients form each lip-smacking flavor, and include delectable edibles such as real cheddar cheese, whole roasted cashews, and freshly harvested Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Visitors to the store can even create their own flavors based on memories of desserts gone by or the snack chip that got away.

Gift tins suitable for housewarmings, birthdays, and clown college graduation are available for $19.99–$39.99, depending on flavor combinations.
