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!

Mackinac Island

Last summer I visited Mackinac Island with my family. We hit all the gift shops and t-shirt stores on the island. We even checked out the scenic views overlooking the big lake. 

One of my favorite parts of the trip was the delicious caramel popcorn. I loved how crunchy it was and the rich molasses flavor. As soon as I got home, I created Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt and every time I eat it, it reminds me of summer on the island.

I describe Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt as a crunchy, molasses rich and salty caramel. I've heard people say that it reminds them of Cracker Jacks, but without the nuts. I know it's the sweet and salty that I love. It just tastes so good to me. 

Dark Molasses Caramel with Sea Salt is now one of our best sellers and every time I think of Mackinac Island there is a special feeling I get about that awesome trip. You can get the same happy feeling I get, right now. Get a tin delivered to your door right now by clicking this link.

Be happy.Dark Molasses Caramel.

Pop-up LibrariesTo say it's a micro library is an understatement. As I have traveled Michigan, I keep seeing more of these super small book exchanges. What is cool about them is the decorative architecture and the fact that you can select a book, read it and take it back. The honor system is an old school concept that helped bond our community. 

Each time we see one of these little libraries, we are going to put cards inside of books for free popcorn. From Lansing to Okemos to Traverse City, be on the lookout and keep reading.

GET DELICIOUS POPCORN SHIPPED TODAYBook Exchange: Traverse City Michigan

There's nothing like reading and enjoying popcorn. A fun treat to relax with.
