My love of popcorn goes back a long way.
When we were in college, my husband Alan and I took date night strolls down the streets of Chicago sharing caramel corn. Alan even hid my engagement ring in the prize envelope of a Cracker Jack box giving me the surprise of my life. To this day, he still won’t tell me how he got the ring in to the sealed box!
When we moved to Virginia Beach, we realized that the area was missing out on fresh caramel corn and that is when the idea for Jody’s Popcorn was born.
The popping began in 2005 when we opened our store at the 31 Ocean Shops. We were determined to create a caramel corn more delicious than any of the commercial brands. It began in our garage, where Alan tweaked batch after batch of caramel corn until the recipe was just right. Our motto was “Amazing or Bust.” After 53 tries we knew we achieved “amazing.”
Although we have grown out of our garage we still put our popcorn through the same rigorous trials and use the best ingredients to achieve amazing flavors!
That is why Jody’s Popcorn means:
A Pop Above the Rest!
Like Alan and I, I hope you will create your own memories around Jody’s Popcorn. Whether it is giving a loved one the gift of a Jody’s tin filled with popcorn, or sharing a bag on the couch on family movie night, we want Jody’s to be a part of your family.
