Popcorn with a Purpose
Pop-a-Roos Gourmet Popcorn Shoppe first opened its doors in September 2014 with one old kettle popcorn machine that my dad left after his passing. One day, I had a desire to pursue a dream to open up a quaint little shop that my dad would have been proud to see and help create jobs for people in need of one. Our flavors are a spin-off from watching my dad, Monroe Sr., create popcorn and peanut recipes with flavored syrups. He didn't know about gourmet popcorn; he was just a young man who grew up in the country and popped some 'corn on the stove and started mixing stuff up--and it was GOOD! Seeing him create fun foods years ago gave me the idea to create fun flavors with kettle popcorn.
TODAY, Pop-a-roos offers over 30 flavors of dessert and savory popcorn that our customers enjoy! Our popping team pops “mushroom” kernels to a beautiful plume, then glazes them with layers of sweet goodness for our dessert popcorns. If you love the cheddar cheeses or more savory flavorings, we offer a variety of delicious combinations that we are certain you will LOVE!
Our flavors include:
901 Mix, River Mix, Chicago Mix, Sharp Cheddar, Spicy Cheddar, White Cheddar, Movie Butter, The Real Dill, Coconut Cream Pie, Loaded Baked Potato, Oreo Cheesecake, Chocolate Pecan, Peanut Butter Cup, Strawberry Cheesecake, Birthday Cake, Banana Pudding, Watermelon, Sweet Heat, Sour Grape, Toffee Nuts, Memphis Heat, Salt & Vinegar, Pistachio, Garlic Toast, Kettle, & many more!
WHAT DADDY AND MAMA USED TO SAY
AND MAMA COULD GIVE YOU THAT LOOK AT CHURCH OR WHEREVER YOU WERE, THAT MADE YOU STOP WHATEVER YOU WERE DOING... WITH NO WORDS, BUT I BET YOU KNEW WHAT SHE MEANT!
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING... MONROE SR. AND JOEANN BALLARD, OR AS WE CALL YOU
Daddy & Momma!
Keep it poppin',
