Great Life In LansingChad Jordan: My Popcorn Life
Great Life In Lansing

Lansing deserves the great things that all big cities have. We are great people, hardworking and grind every single day to make things happen. We've got a great creative culture that works hard.


Be sure to support small businesses. They are the backbone of the community, I know that is a cliche but it is true. Old Town especially has great small businesses. From Whipped Bakery, Katalyst, Preuss Pets, October Moon, Grace, Curvaceous, Meat BBQ, Zoobies Bar and the Cosmo's. These are all my neighbors in Old Town. They are like family.




On the east side near the Okemos the store, there are also great businesses such as Dusty's Cellar and the Tap Room, Mert’s Meat, Buddies and many more.

Mackinac Island

Last summer I visited Mackinac Island with my family. We hit all the gift shops and t-shirt stores on the island. We even checked out the scenic views overlooking the big lake. 

One of my favorite parts of the trip was the delicious caramel popcorn. I loved how crunchy it was and the rich molasses flavor. As soon as I got home, I created Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt and every time I eat it, it reminds me of summer on the island.

I describe Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt as a crunchy, molasses rich and salty caramel. I've heard people say that it reminds them of Cracker Jacks, but without the nuts. I know it's the sweet and salty that I love. It just tastes so good to me. 

Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt is now one of our best sellers and every time I think of Mackinac Island there is a special feeling I get about that awesome trip. You can get the same happy feeling I get, right now. Get a tin delivered to your door right now by clicking this link.

Be happy.Dark Molasses Caramel.

Most Popular Flavors

Choosing your favorite popcorn flavor can be a very difficult task when they are so many delicious flavors to choose from. Some people like sweet and some people like salty. No matter what you like, there something delicious for you. Here is a list of the top five gourmet popcorn flavors at cravings gourmet popcorn in Lansing, Michigan as selected by our fans.


#5 If there was ever a popcorn flavor that was polarizing, dill pickle is that flavor. People that love it crave its vinegary dill flavor. It’s surprisingly zesty taste is very addicting. Unlike many other flavors, dill pickle is not a flavor commonly mixed with other flavors. Dill pickle popcorn is delicious on its own.

#4 White Cheddar is popular on its own or mixed with a caramel popcorn. It's rich cheese flavor is unique and addicting. Because it is slightly salty, the flavor is made more intense by sweeter popcorn.

#3 Cheddar Cheese popcorn always makes your fingertips orange and cheesy. When eating it, you are constantly licking your fingers. Traditionally, it is a mixed with caramel popcorn to create what is called Chicago style popcorn.

#2 Original Caramel is our classic and most widely mixed caramel flavor. Made in small batches in our kitchen, the popularity of this flavor cannot the understated. Customers always buy original caramel to take to parties and to share with their friends. Of course mixing with cheddar cheese, white cheddar cheese or movie theater popcorn only makes it better.

#1 Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt is our newest and most popular caramel popcorn. The deep dark molasses paired with delicious sea salt takes you back to a time when you enjoyed getting a prize out of a box of caramel popcorn. The prize when you eat this flavor is the smile on your face and nostalgia in your mind. By far the most popular and most addicting flavor.

Start shopping now. You can get fresh gourmet popcorn shipped directly to your front door.
