Popcorn used to be served in movie theaters, until researchers discovered that audience members under its influence were far more likely to create midfilm cell-phone disturbances. Snack on cinematic contraband with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet popcorn at Popcorn Stop in Arlington.
The pop idols at Popcorn Stop concoct more than 50 sweet and savory flavors of this classic puffed snack. Kernel explosions resounding throughout the storefront all day ensure the freshness of each batch, and treats are infused with ingredients such as real cheese and made-from-scratch caramel—never powder, pixie dust, or moon cheese. On the salty side of the street, popcorn comes in flavors such as parmesan and garlic, wasabi ranch, and chili con queso, while sugary somethings such as caramel peanut, blazin’ blackberry, and old-fashioned vanilla satisfy sweet fangs.
These munchable morsels are available in seven bag volumes, from the three-cup mini bag ($1–$4.95) to the 275-cup party-size satchel ($17.95–$65.95). The kernels can also be housed in triflavored tins and themed gift boxes. Pick up a graduation-themed box for a starving ex-student ($19.99) or grab a 10-inch caramel-corn movie-reel tin ($11.99) and attend the midnight showing of the beloved popcorn classic Children of the Corn.
Popcorn Stop’s confectioners keep fresh kernels popping continuously throughout the day, slinging their gourmet popcorn flavors alongside fudge, candy, and memorabilia. They coat each fluffed morsel in premium ingredients including real cheese and a secret caramel recipe, resulting in popcorn that, unlike a colonial judge's wig, doesn't contain any powder. Decorative pro-sports and college-themed popcorn tins pack up to 6.5 gallons of any flavor—including s'mores, caramel, and spicy-and-hot cheese—into portable snack stations ready for special occasions, business meetings, or at-home munching.
