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.

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!

Happy New Year!As 2014 comes to a close, we at Cravings are so thankful for the support we have received through yet another fun and successful year. Without you, we could not have met our biggest milestone to date: opening our second location in the Lansing area. In addition to opening our Okemos store, we have continued to grow our online business and expand our line of unique products. 

We couldn't do any of it without you.

With the new year, we have some big things in store! We have new flavors unlike anything we've ever done before and some tricks up our sleeve that we can barely wait to share with you. It's going to be epic. Here's to a new year full of new beginnings.

Happy Holidays from CravingsFrom our family to yours, we wish you all a safe and happy holiday. May your season be filled with abundant joy and may you be surrounded by love at every turn. As another year comes to a close, may you look back at 2014 with reflection and look forward to 2015 with hope for new beginnings.

For many, the next few days will be filled with hurry, finalizing gifts and dinner plans and decorating. Be sure to take some time in the midst of the chaos that often surrounds the holidays to find some peace and calm and to reflect on the reason we celebrate. We all celebrate for different reasons during this season, each equally important. 

Spend time with your family. Your friends. Your loved ones. Slow down and savor each moment. And make someone else's holiday brighter while you're at it. You'll never regret doing so.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for a great 2014, and happy holidays.

Sincerely,

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn
