About Jody

My Love for popcorn goes back to my college years. In fact, Alan, hid my engagement ring in a box of caramel popcorn! Our new home, the resort City of Virginia Beach, was missing fresh caramel corn. We were determined to fill that void with popcorn more delicious than anything we had ever tasted. We began development of the recipe in our kitchen, where Alan tweaked batch after batch. Our motto was “Amazing or Bust.” After 53 tries, we arrived at “Amazing”- Recipe 53 Caramel Corn! Today our flagship store on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront is an icon for vacationers and a staple for locals. And, as we share our popcorn nationwide, we still put it through the same rigorous trials. To achieve our indulgent flavors, we pop our corn daily, use only the finest ingredients and never use preservatives. We hope you love the popcorn as much as we enjoy making it!

Jody's Popcorn was founded by Jody and Alan Wagner in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 2005. We first started in our whimsically designed store at the beachfront in 31 Ocean Shops, where we still sell gourmet popcorn, fudge, sweets, snacks and much more just one block from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

Satisfying Growing Demand

We later expanded to our production facility just a few miles away from the store. In this facility we still handcraft our gourmet flavored popcorn for people like you coast-to-coast.

Our Jody's Popcorn fans had requested packaging of their favorite flavors for delivery to their year-round homes, after enjoying all we offer from the store during their summer beach vacations. Now, whether visiting during the summer for some fun in the sun or staying at home in the United States, Canada or on military bases worldwide, Jody's Popcorn fans have access to the flavors they love every single day of the year.

Whether you buy your Jody's Popcorn from this website, in a retailer near you, or in our Virginia Beach store, we continue to deliver our promise of better recipes, better flavor and better ingredients.
