I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I appreciate movie nights at home. When I was in college my husband and I were always going to the movies. It didn’t matter what was playing we would just pick a movie and watch it. But now it has to be a really special movie playing in the theater to get me out of the house. I much prefer to stay at home and watch something playing on Netflix, Prime, HBO, or even a DVD from the library when it comes to having a date with my husband. Having a movie night date at home can be just as much fun as going out. Especially when you do some movie night prep and buy some tasty snacks to enjoy.
Which is why I was excited when I learned that the Pop Pop Shoppe in Little Rock was going to host a special event for bloggers. So we could come out to the store and sample all of the delicious popcorn and other snacks that they have available. I knew that this event would be the perfect time for us to buy some snacks for our next movie night date. So before the event, I went to Pop Pop Shoppe’s website to check out the popcorn flavors that are available. And I have to say that Dill Pickle and Wedding Cake flavors caught my eye. Salty pickle favor + popcorn and the flavor of wedding cake + popcorn both sounded like winning combinations to me. I was hoping that these flavors would be available when we went to the Pop Pop Shoppe in Little Rock.
My mom agreed to babysit our kids so we were able to make the blogging event a date where we picked out snacks for our next movie night date. Which was a lot of fun for us, because who doesn’t like sampling new foods. 🙂
We first sampled the Butter flavored popcorn that is made in house daily. It was good, but then I discovered that the Pop Pop Shoppe has a melted butter machine. So you can add the desired amount of butter to your own popcorn. And I have to say that the Butter flavored popcorn went from good to outstanding.
If you like classic movie theater popcorn this one is for you. The best part is that the prices at the Pop Pop Shoppe are a lot less than movie theater popcorn. A small bag is only $2.99 and a large bag is $4.99.
As I mentioned before I was really looking forward to trying the Wedding Cake flavor and the Dill Pickle flavor. We first sampled the Wedding Cake flavor and it was good. It tastes a lot like the wedding cake cupcakes that are popular at cupcake shops, but it was popcorn.
But I really fell in love with the Dill Pickle flavor (Pickle Pop), it was so salty and delicious. My husband also liked it so we knew we would be purchasing a bag for our next movie night date. We also tried the Rajun Cajun flavor and liked it a lot too. It’s salty and spicy, my husband is a fan of spicy foods so he really liked this flavor. So we selected a bag of Pickle Pop and Rajun Cajun for our next movie night date.
Now that we had settled on our popcorn choices for our next movie night we needed some beverages. Luckily, the Pop Pop Shoppe has a great selection of specialty sodas available to purchase. They have a variety of cream sodas, ginger ales, root beers, and more. They also have Cokes, because coke and popcorn is always a great snack combo.
We settled on two chocolate sodas for our beverage choice. Now that we had our Pickle Pop popcorn, Rajun Cajun popcorn, and our chocolate sodas we had accomplished our mission of getting yummy snacks for our next movie night date.
But we couldn’t leave the Pop Pop Shoppe without getting something for our kids too. So we got them a large bag of butter popcorn and I added some extra melted butter to it so it would be extra tasty.
The next time you are looking for snacks for your next movie night at home I would highly recommend stopping by the Pop Pop Shoppe to check out their selection of popcorn, flavored nuts, fudge, and beverages. With over 25 different flavors of popcorn, there is definitely a flavor available to please everyone. Plus all of their popcorn is gluten-free so it’s even suitable for those following a gluten-free diet. The Pop Pop Shoppe is located in Little Rock in the Park Avenue Shopping Center on University next to Target.
