I Recommend GOPO Popcorn

I love popcorn to the point that I pick movie theaters based on their popcorn quality. As much as I love it, I think Megan loves popcorn even more–she eats Skinny Pop on a daily basis, and she has an air popper that we frequently use when watching movies at home.

So when I heard from Stonemaier fan Nicholas that his wife and him run a gourmet popcorn shop in the middle of Missouri called GOPO, I had to give it a try. A more responsible version of myself would have waited until my next visit to Kansas City, as GOPO is on the way there, but I couldn’t wait that long–I had to try the popcorn now!

GOPO always has a few seasonal flavors and crowd favorites in stock in various sizes, though I also think it’s really cool that you can order an off-season flavor as long as you buy a few bags (this makes business sense to me, as you’re asking GOPO to pop something they’re not already popping).

We tried movie theater butter (my favorite), white cheddar, cookies n cream (Megan’s favorite), and tiger stripe. Nicholas surprised us by including a sample of the dark chocolate sea salt, which was delicious too.

Also, I thought it was cool that the popcorn arrived in a special type of reusable box that we can drop off at participating stores. It’s called a Boox.

If you love fancy popcorn in a variety of flavors, I’d highly recommend GOPO. I’m excited to visit their store in Fulton later this year, as I love the idea of a popcorn bar–it looks like the store is a place to hang out, eat popcorn, and play games (opposed to just buying popcorn and leaving).

What’s your favorite fancy flavor of popcorn?

  1. If you like “fancy” check out Chicago’s Berco’s Billion Dollar Caramel corn! https://www.bercospopcorn.com/ though my favorite is Everything Tiger. Melt some butter in the microwave, clarify it, then toss it on the popcorn and tumble it in a bowl, then add everything bagel seasonings and a packet of kraft mac n cheese powder! Forget about staying in shape 😂
