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!

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.
