French Toast, Just Like Grandma's

Warm crunchy buttery maple syrup 

French Toast

There are a lot of gimmicks when it comes to gourmet popcorn, but french toast gourmet popcorn is not a gimmick. French toast popcorn is one of the tastiest gourmet popcorn flavors that we have ever created at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn. If you were to close your eyes while eating it, you could be swept away in the nostalgia of eating your grandmas french toast breakfast.


French toast flavored gourmet popcorn has a light crunch to it like none other. Its flavor is of maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Its got a buttery smoothness that is as mouth-watering as real French toast.


French toast popcorn is a little bit lighter than your typical caramel popcorn. It's slightly less sweet than caramel popcorn, but just as robust in flavor.


It's been a favorite of our fans over the past few years. It is a flavor that we usually put on the menu in the winter. You can get french toast popcorn until February 14th, Valentine's Day. You'll be sure to miss it when its gone and you will be sure to fall in love with it when you eat it.

Wow! What a fantastic year

Hello world, it's 2015
Happy New Year

What an awesome year 2014 was for Cravings Gourmet Popcorn. Everyone knows about our Old Town location, the original store of Cravings Gourmet Popcorn. For so many years, that store was the anchor for gourmet popcorn in the Lansing area. It was a proud moment for all of us, when the Okemos location opened in May 2014. We were so proud to be able to share this accomplishment with all of our customers because without great customers, the new location in Okemos would never have been possible.

What does 2015 look like Cravings Gourmet Popcorn?

  • More savory flavors
  • Unique spice mixes
  • More popcorn variety and new popcorn items
  • Expanded soda pop selection

…And much much more

If you have ideas that you would like to see us do, let us know. Write your ideas in the comments. We want to hear from you. Your ideas make us great.

Cheers to you and toast to 2015 being the best year ever!

Everyone loves to eat fresh popcorn during the holidays. Now is the time to get your popcorn. Here is a guide to make sure your popcorn is fresh.

1. We make popcorn every day. During the Christmas season, none of our popcorn is more than a few days old. We don't have a warehouse to store our popcorn. We are not a popcorn factory. We make as much as we can to keep up with demand.

2. Plastic bags are sealed and stocked daily. You can expect them to stay fresh for 2-3 weeks.

3. Popcorn tins stay fresh the longest, up to 3 months unopened. Once opened, popcorn will stay fresh if you close it between snacking.

Of course, gifts like Whirley-Pop poppers, gourmet seed, seasonings and oil, shirts and soda will stay fresh in plenty of time for gift giving. Beat the long lines by shopping during the week.

Fall Flavors

Nothing says fall like apple cider, pumpkin pie and caramel apples. We know you love popcorn, so try these three special fall flavors.

Apple Cider Cinnamon is made with real apple cider. Some say it tastes like Apple Jacks cereal.

Pumpkin Pie is made with real pumpkin and pie spices. It's crunchy and delicious.

Caramel Apple is sweet caramel popcorn with apple flavor in every bite.

There are two size tins. One gallon tin (16 cups volume) or two gallon tin (32 cups volume). Because it’s made fresh, you can expect tins to stay fresh for 60 days. Keeping popcorn sealed and away from high humidity and direct sunlight will help to keep your popcorn fresher.

We are real people who are passionate about our popcorn. We aren't a popcorn factory. We know you'll love the popcorn.
