Popcorn can be flavored to taste like every food except itself—a quandary that has stymied philosophers for centuries. With today’s Groupon, your taste buds can savor the enigma: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet, flavored popcorn from POPtions! online plus a $6 flat shipping fee for anywhere in the U.S. (normally $12).
The discerning kernel connoisseur can choose from any of POPtions!'s tantalizing 2- or 3.5-gallon Pop du Jour and three-way combo tins. The popular Caramelt Crunch ($50 for a two-gallon tin) begins with a fluffy canvas of caramel-coated popcorn blended with pecans before being crowned with a mop-top of dark chocolate from venerable French chocolatier Bissinger’s. Toasted Rav ($35 for two gallons), meanwhile, serves up a radical blend of secret spices, tomato flavoring, and parmesan cheese. For chocoholics requiring their decadent daily fix, Over the Top ($50 for two gallons) might send you into a choco-coma with popcorn cooked and coated in a caramel recipe, then drenched in Bissinger’s dark chocolate and chocofied a second time with a generous drizzling of white chocolate. And if the Cheese Lovers tin's fromage à trois of cheddar, Buffalo bleu, and chipotle cheddar ($35 for two gallons) just isn't enough, truly plumb the depths of your personal popcorn psyche with a savory six-bag sampler pack of POPtions!'s most popular flavors, including buffalo bleu, pizza, honey mustard and onion, sugar and spice, chipotle cheddar, ranch, and kittens with mittens ($30).
While a full POPtions! tin makes a scrumptious mid-April snack and an empty one a particularly cruel mid-April Fool's gift, POPtions! can also cover the coming cavalcade of Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, summer birthdays, and the biggest holiday of the year—Burton Gilliam Day. For no extra charge, POPtions! will customize your lid with occasion-specific messages such as "Happy 80th Birthday, Son!" and "Sorry, thought the safety was on. Get well soon."
Bissinger's chocolate-drizzled popcorn can't be shipped between April 15 and September 15 due to warm weather.
- I ended up purchasing a mix bag of pizza pop and del-i-cious. Both were very tasty. The pizza pop has a little zing to it, and the del-i-cious has a really delectable sweet to it. Yum! – Gene Y., Yelp
- I'm ordering 10 tins next week for gifts. I think they need to make people sign a waiver though. You are responsible for your own popcorn consumption. – Heather B., Yelp
