Midwest Living Review

Karen Sorensen
You'll find the standard plain, cheese and caramel popcorn, but why would you settle when you could order bacon and cheddar, candy apple or peppercorn ranch instead?

If you're a popcorn fan, selecting your flavor may be the hardest decision you'll ever make at least while you're in Galena. It took us a good 20 minutes of wandering back and forth among the racks before finally settling on a choice, and just when we thought we had it down, the store manager -- who must moonlight at night as a carnival barker -- lured us over for a free sample of the caramel pecan. And just like that, we were back to square one. There are literally dozens of flavors to choose from with names like Freakin' Hot, Louisiana BBQ, Kitchen Sink, Cinnamon Toast and Peanut Butter Cup. An 8-ounce bag costs $5.95, but it's worth every penny. Just the aroma inside this place is worth at least half that much. If gourmet popcorn's not your thing, they also sell homemade chocolate and fudge and offer a huge variety of Jelly Bellies.
