This journey began over 25 years ago when my family was vacationing in Arizona and came across a craft fair that had a kettle corn vendor. As a lover of popcorn, after my first taste, I knew that this was an amazing way to prepare popcorn. As a matter of fact the taste was so good that we traveled over 60 miles the next day to buy more and bring it back to New Jersey.

After doing some research we started making our version of this great new find on our stove top at home. After many hours of experimentation with kernels, oil, sugars and salts, my finished product was born. I would make it for the family and give it to close friends to enjoy over the holidays. The samples would literally take me hours to make and the reaction from the crowds were  very  good.

About 22 years ago we moved to San Diego and I retired out of health insurance and wanted to start my popcorn business.  I found a popcorn manufacturer in 

Canada that could replicate my recipe and I then found a local food broker and submitted my samples to Costco. They loved the popcorn but about 7-8 days after my submission, Orville Redenbacher sent in his version of kettle corn and Orville was in  and I Lowell was out. (BTW he only lasted about 6 months and mine was much better tasting)

Fast forward 20 years and a few business ventures later, I was still talking about the popcorn and making samples for friends and clients. 


Approximately 8 months ago (April 2019) my mother Goldie who is  93 and the sweetest women ever asked me  “ when  I was finally going to launch the popcorn”  and my response was “Right Now”.  So Goldie Pops was born. We started in one of the largest Farmers markets in San Diego and now we’re in the top 5  local Farmers Markets. 


We use only the best ingredients , NON GMO corn which I screened about 25 different kernels before deciding on our present choice along with the best non GMO coconut oil , Himalayan salt, organic sugar and all natural flavors.              As of now we are featuring 12 different flavors.


The packaging is a beautiful gold mylar resealable bag. 

It is best served ICE GOLD (COLD) we suggest eating it right out of the freezer.

When the temperature drops the flavor POPS !!!


The response has been off the charts and here we are 

 We know that you will enjoy,

Love, Goldie
