During our trip to Soleil Café in Fayetteville NY, something a few doors down caught my eye. We love ice cream, and I love different-flavored popcorn, so seeing Kandied Kernel Popcorn & Kreamery was a real treat (no pun intended). When I walked inside, it had this olde-time general store kind of feel to it. Barrels of popcorn decorated the floor. There was a lot to visually take in…my head was literally about to explode with all of the flavors and possibilities. Another cool thing about this place is that you can ‘try before you buy.’
The Kandied Kernel Popcorn & Kreamery in Fayetteville sells their own handmade ice cream, in addition to another brand that I forgot. I also overlooked taking a photo of the ice cream selection, but here’s a picture from Kandied Kernel’s Facebook page to get an idea of the quality:
We brought home my Dad a Kween Cup of Chocolate Banana Raspberry ice cream. He ate it all, and my Mom remarked that the banana flavor was really good. She requested the Chocolate Lovers, which had brownie pieces in it. She said that she felt satisfied. Although I sampled the Nutella S’mores flavor at the shop, which was good, I didn’t leave with any ice cream…because I chose to concentrate on the popcorn instead.
There are all sorts of different popcorn flavors to explore, and it was hard settling on just two so that I could take advantage of the 2 for $5 Grab-n-Go price.
In the end, I bought the following:
Heath Bar: Oh-my-goodness…this is one of the best popcorn mash-ups I’ve ever had. It is incredibly satisfying, chocolately (but not overwhelmingly so). The popcorn is still crisp, fresh, and not stale or chewy from the Heath Bar drizzle. I am definitely buying this again.
Sour Patch: The name alone piqued my interest. The popcorn has a light candy coating with a dusting of sourness that is addicting. Love it! Definitely captures the flavor of Sour Patch Kids.
Just a few other popcorn flavors to consider include Pickle Juice (I should have sampled this), Sea Salt Karamel, Banana, Fireball, Fruit Salad, Snickers, and Hot Wing & Blue Cheese. According to their website, there are also locations in Liverpool, NY and Cicero, NY.
