My whole family loves popcorn. I think it’s one of those foods that most people like. How can you not?! It’s not only a great snack, it’s also a great gift.
The Popcorn Factory is a leading gourmet popcorn and edible gifts company offering yummy popcorn treats including Popcorn Tins, Samplers, Towers, Baskets, Popcorn Balls and Personalized Gifts. The Popcorn Factory has a rich history which goes back to the inventor of the famous popcorn machines, now popular in movie theaters today. Over the past 30 years, The Popcorn Factory has been recognized for its rich history and contributions to the community. For the second year in a row, The Popcorn Factory donated 4,000 bags of fresh popped caramel corn to entice residents in nearby suburbs to donate to Lambs Farm, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering adults with developmental disabilities to lead personally fulfilling lives, during Popcorn Days. In 2006, The Popcorn Factory, a subsidiary of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLWS), was recognized by Guinness World Records for building the World’s Largest Popcorn Ball, which weighed in at almost two and half tons with a circumference of eight feet. The record-setting, edible popcorn ball made headlines not only when it was created, but also when it traveled and was destroyed in a festive event held in Denver, Colorado. In recent years, The Popcorn Factory also has been featured on The Food Network, the TODAY Show, YouTube and iVillage.com.
I had heard about The Popcorn Factory but never actually tried their popcorn until recently. We received a 2 gallon Falling Leaves tin of cheese, caramel and buttered popcorn. It was gone in about a week. TJ loved the caramel and thought it reminded him of Cracker Jacks. He liked it so much he ate almost half of the caramel section of the can on the first night! I did not expect to like the cheese popcorn as much as I did, it was definitely my favorite. It was fresh and flavorful. A 2 gallon tin of popcorn sells for $24.99 – $39.99, depending on the variety you choose. I’m including The Popcorn Factory in the 2009 Holiday Gift Guide because they have a nice variety of products, the snacks are tasty and there’s a reasonable price range.
The Popcorn Factory is celebrating 30 years of delicious, fun gifts that delight families, friends, children and business customers. In honor of its 30th anniversary and National Popcorn Month, The Popcorn Factory has launched a “30 Gift Giveaway” sweepstakes.
