Disney popcorn. It’s an iconic snack for good reason.
Not only is it one of the first things you smell when you enter a Disney Park, but it also comes in a variety of flavors throughout the resort, from the fun mixes at Kat Saka’s Kettle in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to those special blends you can buy in the Magic Kingdom to take home. But we bet there’s something you don’t know about that popcorn.
Believe it or not, many of Disney’s popcorn flavors are often made in collaboration with a local Florida Business called Popcorn Junkie. This family-run business owned by Neal and Minetta Crosier became the gourmet popcorn supplier for Disney World in 2018. You’ll find Popcorn Junkie flavors ACROSS Disney Parks as well as on Disney Cruise Line.
Popcorn Junkie, which has grown from two to nine employees, continues to introduce new popcorn offerings in Disney World, including the new Strawberry Crunch popcorn you can get for a limited time at Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom. In fact, you can also get that delicious Strawberry Popcorn in the Sweetheart’s Mix at Main Street Confectionery (read our review here).
Other Popcorn Junkie flavors you need to try in Disney World include:
- Better Butter, Crispy Caramel, and Cheesy Cheddar at Magic Kingdom
- Fruity Mix at EPCOT
- Special seasonal flavors across the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs
So the next time you try a new popcorn flavor in Disney World, be sure to silently thank Popcorn Junkie for coming up with that wonderful concoction!
