Choose Between Two Options
Myron Peterson grew up on a Wisconsin cattle and potato farm. After serving in WWII, he returned home and met his wife, Avis, and together the pair opened a creamery, a dairy bar, and a sandwich business. In 1977, though, Myron and Avis Peterson finally found their true calling: popcorn.
When Myron died in October 2014 at the age of 95, the Minnesota Post called him "the popcorn patriarch of St. Paul." Myron and Avis had indeed created a local landmark, and today, a third generation of family members continues to build their legacy upon the same foundation of neighborly service and delicious treats.
Those delicious treats naturally start with the popcorn, which comes in such flavors as cheese, caramel, and hot cheddar. But customers can also divert from the salty, crunchy path and opt for sweet and creamy bites of Peterson's ice cream. There are currently nearly 20 flavors of ice cream available, along with a lineup of old-fashioned treats. These include malts, shakes, and floats, all perfect after a day spent rolling a hoop down the sidewalk.
