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 $7, you get $14 worth of gourmet, flavored popcorn from POPtions! in The Village at Schneithorst's in Ladue.
The discerning kernel connoisseur can choose from any of POPtions!'s crave-worthy classes of corn. The popular Caramelt Nut ($8 per bag) begins with a fluffy canvas of caramel-coated popcorn blended with walnuts before being crowned with a mop-top of dark chocolate from venerable French chocolatier Bissinger’s. Toasted Rav ($5.50 per bag), meanwhile, serves up a radical blend of secret spices, tomato flavoring, and parmesan cheese. For chocoholics requiring their decadent daily fix, Over the Top ($7.50 per bag) 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. Cocoaphobics can opt instead to tag team their taste buds with the tempting tandem of Caramel Cheddar ($6.50 per bag), which swaddles caramel corn in a protective coating of Land O'Lakes cheddar to treat mesmerized palates to a sweet-and-savory square dance.
POPtions! creations also make scrumptious gifts for your Valentine, favorite football devotee, or Hollywood entourage—who insist that you look hot in those tapered velour leggings. 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."
- 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, 12/15/08
- They have a passion for the product and it shows in all the varieties that are offered. Many things can be over come by the feeling that these people love what they are doing. Gourmet popcorn at its finest. – Paul K., Yelp, 7/10/2010
