Popcorn mania

Once you pop, you might not be able to stop

Dill pickle popcorn. Zingy, salty, impossibly pickly—and difficult to stop eating. Most of the treats at the Popcorn Girl store will be tough to put away. Crazy Cornfetti is a multicolored mélange of every fruit flavor you can imagine, and some you cannot (banana cream popcorn, blue coconut, blackberry), all tossed together to create a sticky/sweet masterpiece in your mouth. Classic caramel corn comes mixed with peanuts, pecans, cashews or almonds.

8550 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite 109, 258-2676.

Once you step inside this tiny storefront, a weeks-old business chock full of patrons even though it has yet to install proper signage, you’re in Popcorn Girl’s world. Flavor options are unlimited: loaded baked potato, jalapeño ranch, pizza, Orange Crush, Butterfinger, milk chocolate peppermint … whew. Everything is homemade, including decadent fudge. Custom gift bags, boxes and tins will make last-second gifting easy on you, and pick up some nostalgic candy for a stocking stuffer. This might be the last place on Earth still selling candy cigarettes.
