Pop Into “Popcorn Charlie” & Company!

As a lover of popcorn, “Popcorn Charlie” & Company is one of my favorite destinations in the Quad Cities. Popcorn, cheese corn and caramel corn are the reason that I visit. Located on the north west side of Davenport, Iowa, this store is packed to the ceiling with various popcorn treats and candy in all colors and flavors. The moment that I enter the building I am greeted by the enticing aroma of freshly popped popcorn.

I appreciate that “Popcorn Charlie” & Company has been family owned since 1989. Named after the owner, this business started with a popcorn machine at a grade school fundraiser and has grown over the years into a Quad Cities favorite.

What makes Charlie’s so outstanding to me is the fact that they have over 76 sweet and savory flavors including fruit flavors (21 fruity flavors), and seasonal flavors (Eggnog, Absinthe, Ketchup, Mustard, Stove Pop, Cheese Pizza, Peppermint, Amaretto Stone Sour, Irish Creme, Lemon Meringue Pie, Licorice, and Pumpkin Pie). For those that prefer “heat” in their popcorn, Charlie’s has spicy flavors (Blazin’ Ranch, Buffalo Hot Wings, Dragon’s Breath, Hot Habanero, Inferno, Jalapeno, Pepper Pop, Smokin’ Chipotle, Sriracha (a limited edition), and Red Hot Cinnamon) which are rated by warm, hot, and very hot.

Candy Anyone?

Sometimes I prefer just the standard buttered popcorn. There is a delightful vintage popcorn machine that pops away all day long. Generous bags of warm popcorn come in several sizes and a large assortment of gift tins are available to be filled and then shipped across the country.

Popcorn For Home Popping

For home use I like to get Popcorn Charlie’s unpopped white and yellow popcorn in bags.  To add to the popping experience, I like to try Shake-on flavors (Cheddar Cheese, Gourmet White Cheddar, Salt & Vinegar, and Sea Salt & Black Pepper) which are also available for home use.

As Charlie says, “Pop in and see us, try some popcorn and see for yourself why everyone else knows that our popcorn is “Crisp ‘n’ Fresh©!”

I agree with him completely!
