Favorite Places: Coastal Maine Popcorn Company
A couple of my students came in the other day with bags of popcorn. “Try this kind,” one student urged. “She’s already tried them all,” countered the other, a summer employee of Coastal Maine Popcorn Co., one of my favorite places in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
It’s true, since the store opened last spring, I really have tried almost all the flavors they sell. The gourmet popcorn shop boasts over 20 sweet and savory flavors of popcorn including Toasted Coconut, Dill Pickle, Chocolate Pudding, Salt and Vinegar, and Buffalo Wing. Additional flavors are added to their list all the time-I went in yesterday and they’ve added barbecue! They insist on giving samples to aid you in making your decision and, given my wealth of tasting experience, I can highly recommend them (I’m a big fan of Parmesan and Garlic).
Their prices are reasonable and they ship if you’re “from away”. I’ve realized over the past year that this unique popcorn also makes a great gift: hostess gifts, party snacks, thank you presents…I even just sent some off as a Valentine’s Day gift! So if you love popcorn, check out Coastal Maine Popcorn Company…and if you don’t love popcorn, you will!
