There’s a new popcorn sheriff in town and she goes by the name of Rachel Michael.
Rachel Michael’s Gourmet Popcorn is the latest and greatest thing to hit the Toledo streets. My co-worker (and awesome foodie), Paula brought in a treat to work one day in the form of Buckeye popcorn…you know, the wonderful peanut butter and chocolate treat us Ohioans go crazy for whenever it’s available. So after sharing this delicious popcorn with the team, I was hooked and HAD to go check it out for myself.
I visited Rachel’s shop last Saturday. It is located on Monroe Street in Toledo, right next to our local Hobby Lobby (so I frequent the area quite often). When I walked in, I smelled the aroma of all things Holy – popcorn, melted chocolate on top of popcorn, pumpkin & caramel all up on popcorn…it was absolutely glorious. Yes, I am a popcorn lover…borderline kernel-obsessed, don’t judge me.
I already knew I loved the gourmet Buckeye flavored popcorn, so I requested a bag of it to take home (a large bag of course). Then, being the magnificent daughter that I am, I purchased a bag of pumpkin popcorn for my mother (so she keeps doing my laundry for me when I drop it off at home).
If I could have bought every flavor of the popcorn, I would have. Flavored popcorn is a great gluten-free treat because it’s safe, it can be healthy, and it’s fun. Everyone loves popcorn, even the gluten-eaters!
If you’re one of my local readers, I urge you to stop at Rachel’s shop as soon as possible. This weekend is full of Grand Opening festivities, starting Friday, October 18th with a live broadcast from 92.5 KissFM and a ribbon cutting with Toledo Mayor Mike Bell! I am going to stop by on Saturday afternoon for some fun, so maybe we can get a chance to chat!
Remember, the entire weekend all of Rachel Michael’s Gourmet Popcorn is 10% off! And parents, kids get FREE popcorn balls all day long. What’s not to love about that?
Don’t forget to follow Rachel Michael’s Gourmet Popcorn on Facebook so you can stay up-to-date with the latest popcorn flavors that are being cooked up! And if any of my admirers are reading this, feel free to buy me buckets and buckets of the Buckeye popcorn!
