Pop By on Popcorn Day

Pop by on National Popcorn Day! The Rochester Downtown Alliance is celebrating National Popcorn day early this year by handing out complimentary popcorn bags at select Downtown Rochester locations on Friday, January 18. RDA employees will be distributing bags from 11am-1pm, while supplies last, so stay tuned as we release drop-off location details!

While our favorite popcorn provider, Carroll’s Corn, is supplying us with their extra delicious classic “Triple Mix” to hand out on January 18, we couldn’t help wondering what other types of flavors people enjoy. So, here are five of the most a-maize-ingly unique popcorn flavors we found. You be the judge and let us know if you’d be willing to try any of these!


Nothing quite says comfort food like potatoes, cheese, bacon and sour cream. That’s what Kernel Encore was thinking when they put it all together into one tangy seasoning to create Loaded Baked Potato Popcorn!


Tired of seeing your money slowly dwindle with those daily coffee runs? Replace the can with corn, and give caffeine-infused popcorn by Biofuel a try for the mid-day work pick me up!


Imagine your grandma's famous lemon bars ,but with a...crunch? Popcornopolis, a California-based company made just that with the perfect mix of lemon zest and classic popcorn salt with their Lemon Heaven Popcorn. 


We found a company called PortleBay that's bringing back the nostalgia of early mornings of pancakes and bacon with their Bacon and Maple Syrup Popcorn. The smokey bacon flavor paired with the subtle syrup will have it feeling like Sunday morning.


Just in time for the holiday season, Kernel Encore brings you Eggnog Popcorn! Whether you love it or you hate it, Eggnog is one of Kernel Encore's most popular holiday flavors. 

So, would you try any of these unique flavors? We have to say, we're going to play it safe and stick with our favorites from Carroll's Corn. Don't forget, you can grab your bag of Triple Mix from us on Friday, January 18 from 11AM-1PM! Stay tuned for the location reveals.
