Mojito. Cherry Limeade. Coconut Curry. Peanut Butter with Grape Jelly. Dill Pickle. Jalapeño Ranch. Watermelon. M&Ms. These are just a few, out of an abundance, of flavors to choose from at The Popcorn Bar. We happened to be in the area and I wanted to stop by. I recently heard about The Popcorn Bar by coming across a Yelp review (go figure) and the various mouthwatering flavors sold there. I was sold at Dill Pickle flavored popcorn! Could this be true? So today happened to be the day my stomach and tastebuds have awaited for!
You can get quite lost finding the establishment, but its located right off Southwest Freeway in a small shopping center. You wouldn’t know it was there unless you were looking for it. It smelled heavenly as soon as I walked in the doors! It’s a small but lovely decorative shop. Filled with celebratory and holiday decor, as well as gift packages filled with delicious popcorn!
I was greeted by a lovely young lady named Autoosa. Not only did she not judge me on my school girl excitement and reaction (or the five bags of popcorn I bought), but we also bonded over food. Loved her! What was even sweeter than the customer service was the popcorn itself. Every single flavor I ordered was awesome and I would order again.
I had the following flavors:
- Strawberry Cheesecake & Oreo – I thought this would be my favorite but wasn’t, however still delicious
- Pina Colada – sweet and crunchy
- Buffalo Wings – Spicy, savory, delicious!
- Houston Style – I am a huge caramel popcorn lover and this mixes caramel & toffee together
- Dill Pickle – MY FAVORITE! By far was surprised how tasty this was. If you like pickles. GET THIS! If you don’t like pickles. GET THIS!
I ended up spending about $15 which isn’t bad for 5 bags of mini popcorn flavors (the ‘mini’ size is quite big in portion). I’m shocked more people do not know about this place or that there are no more locations spread throughout the city. Or maybe it likes to stay a hidden popcorn gem. Now it’ll be my little hidden gem (and yours of course). My new favorite place! Be sure to stop by for your Halloween goodies!
