Popcorn crazies

I was grabbing some lunch today and noted a gourmet popcorn place called Poppa Maize that I hadn’t seen before.  So, of course, I had to go in.

Inside this cool shop was a virtual cornucopia (I used this big word since it has “corn” in it and I just like it) of popcorn.  I was mesmerized by the variety contained here.  I knew that I had to take some to the office to “bless” their day as well.

Choices.  Which would I choose.  They had apple cinnamon, backyard barbecue, candy bar caramel, cheesy chipotle, banana (you are kidding, right?), toasted almond, toasted coconut, German chocolate, sweet cheese, pineapple jalapeno (again, you are kidding, right?), chili y lime, Strawberries and Cream, Toasted Sesame, Pina Colada and the list goes on and on.

So, I ordered a bag of Caramel corn and Kettle corn.  I know, I know, kind of boring after seeing the list above. But, I wanted to go for the ones I knew I and others would like.  Seems predictable but sometimes I like predictable.

When it comes to certain things (like popcorn), I tend to play it safe.  In things like life and relationships and conversations however, I know there are many times that I need to throw caution to the wind and go for it.  Safe misses the adventure.  Without risk, there can be little reward. So, next time, I am going for broke and trying Firecracker Crunch popcorn.  Sounds pretty bold I know. But, that is just the kind of guy I am!

    I love that place!! I must confess I can’t get passed the kettle corn… I remember once Kathy C. brought in different popcorn to taste for the 5th and 6th graders and tied it in with her lesson… Kids loved it..
