Give Thanks this SeasonThis time of year, we often think about homemade turkey dinners, family gatherings, football games, and Black Friday deals. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and it's important to keep the reason for this holiday in mind. We take pause during this time to reflect on all that we are thankful for -- the big things we often take for granted, like a roof over our head and food on the table and the little things that make life feel so full, like friendship and giving back to our communities.

Cravings Popcorn is thankful for each and every one of our customers and this year, we invite you to celebrate with your families with one of our Thanksgiving Dinner boxes. These boxes feature five bags of popcorn that taste just like turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie for only $50. Each flavor tastes exactly like it sounds, and are more delicious than you can even imagine. Share these with your friends. Share them with your families. You'll bring a fun, new element to your holiday and we know you won't regret it. Order online or stop into any Cravings location today.

November Flavor Launch Party We had a blast last night at our Flavor Release Party! We had over 20 special guests come try our new holiday flavors and play several fun games. Each guest received a gift bag with a bag of each new flavor (over $40 worth of popcorn!). Guests also won prizes for playing each of the games. Everyone was a winner!

The new flavors are hot chocolate, sugar cookie, candy cane, butterscotch caramel, and butter rum. The most popular new flavor was the butter rum, and we will have each of these flavors available in both Cravings locations on November 1. Be sure to try all of them and let us know which one is your favorite! We're certain you're going to want to share these with everyone you know.

Keep an eye out for more information on our next Launch Party in November where we will reveal our 2015 Thanksgiving Popcorn Dinner boxes. They're as delicious as they sound.
Celebrate National Popcorn Poppin' Month

Guess what? October is National Popcorn Popping Month! There's still time to celebrate, and before you head to Cravings to pick up some kernels for home or your favorite Cravings flavor (we’ll do the popping for you), we wanted to give you some information about popcorn you never knew you wanted to know.

  • Americans eat around 17 billion quarts of popcorn each year—enough to fill the Empire State Building 18 times.

  • Popcorn kernels can pop up to three feet in the air.

  • There are about 1,600 popcorn kernels in one cup.

  • In ancient times, people would make popcorn by heating sand in a fire and then stirring kernels of popcorn in the hot sand.

  • Autumn is the peak time for popcorn consumption, followed by the winter months. Popcorn sales taper off during the spring and summer.

Be sure to pop into a store to celebrate National Popcorn Popping Month in style. There’s no better way than with a bag of mouth-watering Cravings popcorn.


And, in case you haven’t gotten your fill of popcorn facts, read more about the history of popcorn as well as these additional facts!

Popcorn Flavors That Make You Say Yum

We are happy to announce our ten new flavors. These flavors will be available February 21st. As suggested by one our genius Facebook fans, three flavors were voted on via poll. Those three flavors are Premium Signature Gold, Bacon Cheddar and Buffalo Cheddar.

The next three flavors were selected by the Cravings team. Those flavors are Cajun Spice, Nacho and finally Sun Dried Tomato & Basil.

Chad had final say over the last four choices. He selected Jalapeno Cheddar, Chicken & Waffles, Coconut Cream and Coco Invasion (our crunchy, caramel like cocoa popcorn).

Finally, don't forget we always have our classic flavors Original Caramel, Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt, Cheddar Cheese, White Cheddar and Lightly Salted Movie Popcorn every day.

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.
