It seems everyone loves popcorn. Children, adults, on a diet and not on a diet. Maybe it’s because he’s so versatile. You can have it salty or sweet and it comes in all kinds of flavors. You would think there would be a store that would only sell popcorn, right? Well guess what? In fact, there is. I had no idea we had such a store in the Hudson Valley, but I came across an ad and was intrigued. So I looked at him.
The store is called Country Kids Popcorn and is located on Route 52 in Hopewell Junction. Popcorn and Kettle Corn are made here in the Hudson Valley and they have an incredible list of flavors ranging from classic popcorn, movie popcorn and classic kettle corn to more adventurous flavors like corn in Creole kettle, wasabi and dill pickle. And dozens of flavors in between. And it looks like they have different flavors for different occasions.
I haven’t had a chance to visit the store yet, but read about it. Here is what I learned. The people behind Country Kids have been around for a while. They started in 2014 selling their kettle corn at local fairs, flea markets, farmers’ markets, fundraisers and festivals. Over time, they became so popular that they were able to open their store at 2593 Route 52 in Hopewell Junction. Discover their website.
While you are in Hopewell to buy your popcorn from Country Kids, you may want to visit East Fishkill Provisions Smoke Haus for some of the best meats and deli around, and you can’t go to Hopewell Junction without a visit to Hot Hopewell Bagels. One thing’s for sureâ¦ you won’t leave Hopewell Junction hungry.
