Midwest Living Review
From big plastic tubs behind the counter, the staff at Great Lakes Popcorn Co. scoop out samples and shake them into stainless-steel divided plates. Want to try some bacon and cheese popcorn? Maybe grape? English toffee? Wild walleye? Here, you can try (and buy) flavors of popcorn you might never have imagined. And the funny thing: It's all good. Bubblegum-flavored popcorn might sound a bit cloying, but it's surprisingly tasty. The citrus flavor tastes like Froot Loops cereal. The store's top seller: vanilla butternut, which is available in traditional white or in patriotic red, white and blue. The store, a main attraction in downtown Port Clinton, also sells tins, popcorn-related gifts and an odd smattering of souvenir jewelry. But the big draw is the mouthwatering popcorn. Buy a bag and take it down the block to eat waterside at the marina. Just hold your nose when you walk by the Port Clinton Fish Co., which is situated between the popcorn store and the dock.
