Lucky Star, Poetry and Popcorn

Lucky Star

 I hear the music across the way

 my toe begins to tap

the beauty of my city

 just a star upon a map.

Last September the Old Town Poetry Bench project was completed with the selection of winning poems and installation of new benches.  At Cravings Gourmet Popcorn we thank our lucky stars that we have a bench in front of our store.  We are equally grateful to winning poet Denise Corey Henderson for her poem: Lucky Star. It is great to see visitors to our store and Old Town have a place to sit a spell and enjoy the comings and goings. 

This Poetry Bench project is just another example of the Old Town Commercial Association’s commitment to improving the look of our business district and enhancing the experience for our visitors.  Coming to events sponsored by the OTCA means you are helping to support this community asset. Thank you for continuing to support our store by shopping regularly and bringing your friends and family to Old Town for a special treat.

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town Lansing, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan.  Cravings Gourmet Popcorn can be purchased online and shipped to anywhere nationwide.

Popcorn for Dessert on this Special Day

On September 19 Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is celebrating a very special day. Did you know that National Butterscotch Pudding Day is September 19th?  It’s a simple holiday to remember because it is always celebrated on September 19, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls.  This year it is Wednesday – a perfect day to have a mid-week celebration. 

National Butterscotch Pudding Day does not have an official proclamation, and the traditions associated with this day are understandably limited.  If you check online the best you can find is a call to make and eat your own butterscotch pudding on this special day.  You won’t find any decorations or special cards to commemorate this event - it appears that the stores and retail associations did not get the memo about this wonderful holiday.

We thought that the word scotch in the name might refer to either Scottish origins or for the hard liquor of the same name – wrong on both counts.  One explanation for the word is its relationship to the meaning "to cut or score" for the word "scotch", as butterscotch candy must be cut into pieces, or "scotched", before hardening. It is also possible that the "scotch" part of its name was derived from the word "scorch". (Thank you Wiki!)

With ingredients like butter, sugar, and salt – how can you go wrong?  That combination has worked well for us at Cravings. One of our most popular sweet popcorn flavors is – you guessed it – butterscotch.  Come celebrate National Butterscotch Pudding Day with us! Let’s try tossing some popcorn on your pudding.

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan. We welcome visitors to our store and our website.  Enjoy our unique naturally seasoned flavors and vintage sodas, and when you can’t come in person know that we will ship your favorites to you anywhere nationwide.

I love Cheerwine.  It's a southern soda pop treat that is as refreshing as it is tasty.  Cheerwine and Krispy Kreme doughnuts may make my head explode.  Check out this blog post from CookBookAholic

If that makes your mouth water, you can get a bottle of Cheerwine at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn & Soda Pop Market in Old Town Lansing.
