If you are a “snack monster” like me then I am sure that you are on the constant hunt for new “good eats” to try. I recently decided to try out some popcorn from a shop not far from my house that I had become curious about (and that my daughter had asked me a few times to take her to). Popportunities DID NOT disappoint! Their popcorn is wonderful…..I’d even compare it to Garrett’s (yes I said it)! They feature a variety of popcorn flavors as well as other snacks such as chocolate turtles, chocolate covered pretzels, and even ice cream. But the popcorn is what they really take pride in and will have you coming back for more.
Popportunities is a family-owned business currently with one location in north county St. Louis although they do have plans to expand to other areas. After some brainstorming and research on good businesses to start, they decided to pursue a popcorn business after finding only one other popcorn shop in the St. Louis area. After this, the family decided to invest in a large popcorn maker and started experimenting with different flavors of the snack out of their home. They finally decided to set up shop in a building to really grow their business and landed in their current location, which opened in March of 2013. And they have been at it ever since adding new popcorn flavors and winning new, loyal customers (including me)!
In addition to running their shop, the Popportunities family also does catering and deliveries throughout the expanded St. Louis metro area. Additionally, they do fundraisers and sell their popcorn in gift tins. If you plan to visit Popportunities soon, here are their top flavors:
– St. Louis style (caramel and white cheddar cheese mix)
– Chicago style (caramel and cheddar cheese mix)
– Oreo cookies
Other flavors they have include:
– loaded baked potato, buffalo blue cheese, sour cream and onion, barbeque, buffalo wing, cajun, candy coated varieties, jalapeno cheese, flame n hot, strawberry cheesecake, caramel pecan, red velvet, chocolate hazelnut, Reese’s PB cup
Now isn’t that a lot??
You all have to try out their popcorn soon if you never have. So here’s what I’m going to do. The first 10 people to try out their popcorn and mention that you found them through my blog will get $2 off their purchase. You will also get entered into a drawing to win one of their gift tins filled with your fave flavor of their popcorn!!!!
Popportunities….check them out and take or tell a friend!
