Additional Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have Gluten-Free or Vegan Popcorn?

Certainly! We provide an array of popcorn options that are gluten-free and/or vegan. Despite the gluten-free or vegan availability of many popcorn flavors, it's essential to clarify that our facility is not exclusively gluten or vegan-free. All our products are crafted in the same kitchen, introducing the potential for cross-contact. To find out the ingredients of each product, we advise checking the respective flavor pages on our website. For a flavor's ingredient list, click on any flavor and scroll down to the bottom of the description. We strive to offer a diverse snacking experience while maintaining transparency about our production processes. Our goal is to ensure you have a delightful snacking experience while prioritizing your health and safety.

What is the shelf-life of your popcorn?

At City Pop, we pop-to-order. This means we pop daily. To maintain the freshness and quality of our popcorn, we recommend following these storage guidelines:

Store in a cool, dry place:Popcorn is best stored in an area with low humidity, as moisture can cause it to become stale or lose its crunchiness. Avoid storing it near the stove, sink, or any other source of heat or humidity.
Seal it tightly:After opening the package, make sure to reseal it tightly to prevent air exposure. This will help retain the popcorn's crisp texture and prevent it from going stale.
Consider airtight containers:If you prefer, you can transfer the popcorn to an airtight container for added protection. This can help extend its freshness and keep it free from external odors.
Avoid direct sunlight:Keep the popcorn away from direct sunlight or strong light sources, as they can affect its taste and texture. Opt for a dark pantry or cupboard for storage.
Consume within recommended timeframe:While our savory flavors are good for up to 15 days, and sweet and caramel flavors last for several weeks, it's best to enjoy the popcorn as soon as possible to experience its optimal taste and texture.

Remember, the storage duration may vary depending on the environmental conditions and your location. By following these storage tips, you can savor the fresh, delightful flavor of our popcorn for an extended period.

Do you sell Popcorn Kernels?

While we focus primarily on popcorn that is already popped and seasoned, we do recognize some customers love to pop at home! Try our large mushroom kernels here: https://citypopdenver.com/products/mushroom-popcorn-kernels
