Kernel Encore Gourmet Popcorn (Orlando)
***** Kernel Encore Gourmet Popcorn , 601 North Primrose Drive, Orlando, Florida 32803, (407) 897-7022.
I’m not exactly sure – when I first got hooked -but I’m thinking October, 1954! That’s when Jeff Eats fell in love with caramel corn and buttered popcorn. If recollection serves me correctly, it was those $.05 boxes of Cracker Jack and those $.10 cups of Loew’s Kings popcorn-that started the ball rolling.
Flash forward to-Father’s Day 2014…with Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats “delivering” to my home -a 2 gallon popcorn tin filled with caramel corn, a 2 gallon popcorn tin filled with caramel cashew/chocolate cherries/french toast/garlic cheddar/loaded baked potato/sea salt caramel and a 2 gallon popcorn tin filled with toffee/triple dipped chocolate carmel/two cheese/white chocolate drizzle macadamia nuts from gourmet popcorn store, Kernel Encore in Orlando-and I gotta tell you, definitely one of best Father’s Day gifts Ive gotten in the past 31 years.
Nothing for nothing, I know some of you guys are into the whole “neck tie” thing- but 6 gallons of popcorn is the way the Eats kids rolled this year.
From what I understand, Kernel Encore -has a retail outlet in Orlando, makes 237 flavored popcorns and ships all over the country. You can check www.kernelencorepopcorn.com for products/prices/other stuff. The retail location is open Monday-Thursday 11am-6:30pm, Saturday 11am-5pm, closed Sunday.
Let me wrap this up by telling you, Jeff Eats knows his caramel corn and Kernel Encore’s stuff is amazing-good. I’m also gonna let you in on a little secret, Kernel Encore’s “flavored” popcorn are also amazing-good…for sure some flavors top others, but Jeff Eats never looks a gift horse in the mouth.
Happy Pop’s Day!
