FAQs

How many people can share a 2 gallon or 3.5 gallon tin?

The 2 gallons tin is about 32 cups and the 3.5 gallon tin is about 56 cups. In our experience, friends will eat about 4-6 cups when sharing. So the 2 gallon tin is enough popcorn for 5-8 friends and the 3.5 gallon tin is enough for 9-14 friends.

Shipping Information

Can I track my order?

We will send a tracking number when your order is shipped. The tracking number is linked through ups.com.

When do you ship?

Packages are shipped Monday through Friday only, except holidays. We ship up to 24 hours after you have placed your order (often same day). Weekend orders are commonly shipped Monday. Occasionally there can be a slight delay, no more than half a day, during peak gift season.

We do not ship during weekends.

Do I need to be home when my popcorn arrives?

This is a judgment call. If you live in an apartment or area where packages are not secure, we suggest you use a work address or alternative address. We ship all orders without requiring a signature upon delivery. If no one is available to sign, UPS will leave your order at the door without a signature. We strongly recommend that someone be present to accept delivery, as popcorn can be a tempting treat for someone to snag. Cravings Gourmet Popcorn cannot be responsible or liable for deliveries where the customer is not available to receive the order.

How are my orders shipped?

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn ships exclusively with UPS. UPS Ground Service and, 2nd Day Air are the shipping options. Because our popcorn is perishable we package your popcorn with care.

Traditional Gift cards are delivered via US Postal Service First Class Mail.

How can I keep my popcorn fresh?

Here are some recommendations to keep your popcorn fresh:


  • Avoid opening your popcorn until you are ready to eat it.

  • Exposure to adverse weather conditions such as high heat and humidity cause popcorn to lose freshness.

  • After popcorn has been opened, store it  in an air-tight container.

  • Never refrigerate, freeze, reheat or microwave the popcorn.

  • Our popcorn can stay fresh for up to four weeks.

What is your return policy?

Because our popcorn is perishable, we do not accept any returns. We only ship popcorn that is fresh, generally made within 48 hours of shipping. Because we are not a factory, every order is popped in small batches.

How much popcorn do I need for a popcorn bar?

A typical person will consume about 2-4 cups of popcorn at a social function, more if alcohol is involved. We sell lots of Jumbo bags (5 gallons, 80 cups) for popcorn bars at weddings, guests love them. You get tons of popcorn and if you buy 3 or 4, you get a variety to eat alone or mix with other flavors. Jumbo bags start at $30 each. We generally have every flavor in stock, but it's always great to call ahead to reserve what you want.

Is your popcorn gluten free, nut free, vegetarian or vegan?
