The Localist: Popcorn Papa

Celebrate National Popcorn Day in style.
By Melissa Mackaly |

Tomorrow is National Popcorn Day, and I’m going to share one of my favorite local popcorn purveyors in honor of the playful food holiday. Popcorn Papa is located in Rockwall and has been serving up gourmet popcorn since 1982. The business has more than 20 different candied popcorn varieties to choose from.

Popcorn Papa offers several sweet and savory flavors plus a few options with nuts. All flavors and colors are available online and in their store. If you happen to make it into the location you can also shop their wide variety of vintage candies and bottled soda. They take custom orders up to any amount and can take care of your packaging needs for those orders. The company has anything from large popcorn tins to small, single serving plastic containers. Special orders can be tagged with custom labels.

All Popcorn Papa products are made in house and are guaranteed to be fresh and delicious. To learn more about Popcorn Papa visit their website here.
