One of my most favorite snacks is popcorn. Truth. I’m totally ok with some plain ‘ole popped corn, but I truly enjoy the unique and different varieties out there. Well, passing by on a stroll in Portland, ME, it was fate. I approached Costal Maine Popcorn Co. and had to stop in.
Upon entering, you’ll see huge bags full of popcorn, but don’t let that overwhelm you, they have smaller bag sizes once you work your way in the store. They have a number of classic and unique flavors to choose from, both savory and sweet.
I got a small bag of their Chocolate Macaroon. I really enjoyed this. What I liked the most, was that this wasn’t some super sweet coated popcorn. You know, the kind where you have a couple handfuls and you’re nauseated. This had a more pure, chocolate cocoa flavor, delicately glazed too with a really nice coconut flavor, really giving you the taste of a chocolate dusted macaroon.
Name: Costal Maine Popcorn Co.

The Long and Short: Would I go back? Definitely. And, if you can’t make it there, they also sell their popcorn online. They also offer a Popcorn of the Month. So, you know, holiday season coming up and all. Message me for the best address to send mine. Thanks.
Would I recommend it? Whether you’re a savory or sweet fan, they’ve got a flavor for you.
