They've about 75 flavors, all pre-bagged. If you ask you can sample some. The older woman who took care of us was BEYOND friendly and helpful. The maple popcorn was unusual and delicious. The price at $10 per bag seemed a bit high, but it is gourmet. Nobody rushes you and lots of interesting flavors.

Friendly staff and great popcorn. We enjoyed sampling all the flavors. We decided to get 4 bags since we couldn’t narrow it down. There are soooo many flavors!!! Staff was super friendly and felt welcomed!!!

You can smell the popcorn as soon as you park! Super nice store owners. Flavored popcorn - you name it they have it plus some! Sort of pricey, but worth it for the flavors. Chocolates look good - didn’t try. Ice cream and taffy.

I was just there 3/5/2022 and bought 2 bags of overpriced and under seasoned popcorn. Over 7$ for a bag that is maybe 5 ounces (they dont print the weight on the bag of course). You could get better more flavorful cheese popcorn at walmart. I also
bought a bag of caramel cashew. Im not kidding there were maybe 3 or 4 half pieces of cashew in the whole bag! And very little caramel flavor. They appraently like to save money by under-seasoning their popcorn. Try Garrets from Chicago (they ship). Its pricey but 1000 times better than this tourist trap.

Extremely expensive, very bland, mediocre popcorn. Also made with very poor quality corn half the popcorn has a rock hard piece in it. I've had better popcorn in Christmas tins. The fudge was a little better, but not worth buying.

Came here on a food tour and left with two yummy bags of popcorn. The Galena Mix is so good! Samples when you walk in the door, tons of popcorn flavors available for purchase and amazing ice cream and cotton candy in the back. A must visit in Galena!

I can into the store excited and it was great hearing the fresh popcorn popping. There were so very interesting flavors but when I tried the cheddar it was hard and did not taste fresh. This made me rethink purchasing a bag and so we left. I wish they had fresh samples so you could really get the flavor and appreciate it.

There are so many different flavors of popcorn! We came home with 4 bags and tried other flavors we had never heard of-birthday cake, puppy chow, cotton candy, etc.

We walked in and several people were behind the counter, laughing and joking with each other. No one gteated us. As we looked around, we tried asking a couple of questions about the products. All we were told was, "If you wanna try something, there's samples over there". After looking around some more, we picked what we wanted, paid for it, and left. Again, no one said "Thanks for coming", "Have a nice day" NOTHING as we walked out. They were too busy chatting with each other.
On the bright side. The popcorn was fantastic!!! That is the only nice thing I'll say about this place, today.
Will I go back? Probably... I'll give them a second chance.

We are sooo sorry to hear about your experience in our store the other day and I personally apologize that our staff wasn’t being attentive like they usually aim to do! We’ve built our business around the goal of exemplary customer service for over 25 years now. Breaks our hearts when someone comments on not having the experience in our store that we strive for. I appreciate you taking the time to review us and letting us know. I have spoken with all my staff and we will all work harder and do better. I also appreciate you saying you’ll give us another try. I hope the next time you come into our business you not only love the popcorn, but you get the customer service we expect to shell out as a family business. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Blessings, Victoria Manley | Manager
