My 8 year old loves popcorn more than normal. Stopping here on our way home was always the plan. The bag he got was much larger than ours were. There were tons of choices. Great place to visit again and again!

Stopped in here on Black Friday. Place was packed as was the rest of Galena. Popcorn smell was great, who doesn't like the smell of popcorn? Almost every flavor of popcorn to choose from that you can think of, however, it's pricey at $7 for a small bag. They were offering a free bag if you bought 2 or 3 that day but honestly I didn't want to spend $20 or more for a few bags of popcorn. We bought one bag and enjoyed it on our road trip home. Was a little disappointed in that they didn't let a try a taste of the flavor we bought and only had a few sample flavors to choose from.

My family and I visit Galena every year for the craft show. This popcorn place is, hands down, my favorite popcorn store! Super busy but every single employee is cheerful and super helpful and nice. The owner, Dave Lewis, makes sure that you try a sample! His loud contagious presence makes you want to try everything! We left there with 4 bags! Cannot wait to visit next year.

Like flies drawn to honey (or manure), people simply cannot resist entering the Great American Popcorn Company. And, yes, it's a fun place. Entertaining to see the mountains of popcorn and sample till you're sick. You'll almost surely also be compelled to buy a bag or two of the sweet and sticky stuff. From my perspective, though, the popcorn is grossly overpriced (most flavor as more than $7 a bag). And, it's really not that good. People seem to get caught up in the excitement of seeing the piles of popcorn, but frankly, the taste isn't all the great.

The smells drew me into this delightful store. Soooo many flavors and you can sample any of them before you buy. It was seriously hard to decide which flavors to get, the Tiger Butter and Memphis BBQ were particularly good. Super friendly and efficient service. Will definitely be stopping in, next time we are in town, awesome, fun place.
