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.

Old Town’s Dickens Village a Holiday Event that Celebrates the Season

"It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour."

- Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Inspired by the Victorian Era novella by Charles Dickens – A Christmas Carol, Lansing’s Old Town merchant association kicked off the holiday season Saturday, December 1st with the annual Dickens Village event.  Family fun activities were front and center with rides in a horse drawn carriage, ornament-making and a holiday scavenger hunt.  To enhance the flavor of the day Dickens characters and Carolers roamed the streets of Old Town to entertain all who attended this festive event.

At Cravings Gourmet Popcorn we look forward to this annual family friendly event every year.  So if you missed being haunted by the ghosts of Christmas past, you can still put a visit to Old Town on your family calendar of events because the Christmas spirit is alive In Old Town.  If you come, please be sure to stop in to the Cravings store to sample the latest and most popular flavors and consider gifts from Cravings to help you complete your holiday shopping list.  Holiday Tins, Cravings Gift Cards, and the popular Whirly Pop Popper and Seed are all great choices.
