This year, we had several readers write in to our Family Favorites Contest singing the praises of The Popcorn Bag.

“I love Popcorn Bag because they are always friendly and keep you coming back for more with their seasonal flavors and yummy regular flavors. Really like that it’s all around fluffy pieces and not hard, junky filler. Great staff, great concept!”

“The Popcorn Bag is always fresh and has a friendly staff. Their support of the Fairy Godmother Project every year is terrific!”

With recommendations like these, I knew I had to check them out! Now located in The Eagle Village, The Popcorn Bag offers a wide variety of artisanal popcorn flavors, custom orders, a popcorn bar for weddings, and soon, line ordering. Their popcorn is non-GMO and most, but not all, of their flavors are gluten-free. They also have lactose-free options. Arguably the most fun part of the Popcorn Bag experience is the unlimited free samples.

On my first trip to The Popcorn Bag, I was immediately greeted by a friendly young woman and impressive tubs of popcorn. I will admit, I was a bit worried about how my two boys (ages 22 months and 3 years) would do. They were hungry and neither had really napped. It was a recipe for disaster!

Verdict? We had a great experience! The staff was very accommodating and gracious. We left with a few of our favorite flavors in the smallest of their four sizes (“snack”). One was more than enough for each child.

The Popcorn Bag is a fun treat for the kids and parents alike and is a unique alternative to froyo or ice-cream. The artisanal bags of popcorn would make great party favors, and are perfect for a wedding or baby shower. Definitely a Family Favorite!
