Not Just Popcorn in downtown Edinburgh, Indiana is one unusual shop.

The first thing you notice at this Johnson County popcorn shop is the wall of popcorn tins: baseball, football, and other sports teams.

Have you ever strolled around Edinburgh, Indiana? Kid #1 kept commenting how good it smelled–like popcorn! We figured there must be a small town movie theater in the area.

We were surprised to see an entire shop devoted to popcorn! Not Just Popcorn isn’t your regular popcorn. It’s colorful and there’s a lot of it! Bags and tins are lined up everywhere you look.

In fact, Not Just Popcorn makes 300 different varieties of popcorn! little Indiana went on a behind the scenes tour of this Johnson County business–and you can too! Just ask.

Not Just Popcorn pops their corn in coconut oil in 2 lb batches. A contraption on the machine removes the unpopped kernels, which are later fed to animals so there’s no waste. Neat, right?

The most popular flavors include Dill Pickle, Chicago Cheese, and Caramel. There’s plenty of unusual popcorn flavors, too, like Snickers, Nutty Hoosier, Blue Raspberry, Bubble Gum, and so many more!

After watching a lady filling a tin of popcorn, I couldn’t help but ask, “Do you still eat popcorn?” She laughed and said that she does! They all agreed that they just can’t keep from snacking on it! Well, I guess with over 300 varieties of the stuff you wouldn’t be tasting the same flavor everyday.

We sampled Dill Pickle Popcorn, Maple Cream Popcorn, Chicago Cheddar Popcorn, Pumpkin Spice Popcorn, and Iced Cinnamon Popcorn (a white chocolate coated cinnamon popcorn). My husband, Jeremy, liked the Dill Pickle popcorn while Kid #1 and I loved Iced Cinnamon. I’m still getting cravings for it!

    You get to do taste tests? That sounds like my kind of job!

    Lemonade popcorn? THAT’S an unusual one! 🙂 How fun!

    I’m one of the cooks at Not Just Popcorn, hired on a couple months ago. One nifty secret is that we have to sample everything we make to ensure quality. So two months into my time at NJP, I’m still learning all the flavors and saying, “Ah! WE MAKE THAT?! That is cool!” So I love the days I get to make Lemonade popcorn. 🙂

    Yay! Glad to hear it. 🙂 Ooooh, that Iced Cinnamon Popcorn is really dangerous stuff! Ha ha! Enjoy your visit (and ask for a tour–it’s neat!).
