YUM with just the right mix of butter and seasoning! Also tried the duck duo (caramel and cheese) which was ok as well. The caramel tasted like burnt marshmallow (my husband loved it, me not so much). Lots of other flavors to choose from!

Stopped into the Corolla store just before close and the staff were great. Offered lots of samples to the kids who loved getting to taste before we bought. We settled on the Corolla crunch, Pirate Blend and S'mores. All were really great combination of salty and sweet. Customer service was fantastic!

Stopped into the Duck location to pick up a few variety of popcorn. Other than saying the obligatory "Hi" when we entered the store, the teenager behind the counter was surprisingly unhelpful and made us feel like we were interrupting here work when we were trying to buy popcorn. we got two varieties (white cheddar cheese and the chocolate/caramel mix)....

We love this place! I'm sure to visit the popcorn shoppe every time I visit the OBX. Free samples are provided and every flavor is delicious, making it harder to choose which to purchase. My favorites are bacon and cheese & parmesean garlic.

A great little shop with popcorn flavors left only to the imagination, until now. They allow you to step up and sample the flavors, test drive those you would never consider, and create the mix you desire. They have a buy some and get one free. The quantity you have to buy is unclear. One person in our party bought... More

We got the S'Mores and Watermelon popcorn. The S'Mores was excellent! The Watermelon was delicious and very sugary (a crowd pleaser for the kids), however it in no way tasted like watermelon. The pop corn is pricey, and the more intricate the popcorn the more it cost, but this is a tourist area so I guess that is to be... More

I'm usually not very big on flavored popcorn but we went last fall and fell in love so we happened to be back in summer and had to stop in. They are so nice in letting you try what you want so you can decide. They have monthly and seasonal flavors along with year-round specialities. We visited the location in... More

The customer service here is awesome! They let you sample whatever flavors you want. There are a lot of different sports team tins to choose from. Oh yeah...the popcorn..AMAZING!! All the flavors I have tried are great. My top 3 are...Jalapeño Cheddar, Cinnamon Twist and Watermelon. Can't wait to come back. You must stop at this location, don't miss it.

We are the one and only Outer Banks Popcorn Shoppe, yes a small family owned and operated business! We make all of our gourmet popcorn fresh daily right in each location (Duck or Corolla) We also make it in small batches to verify the absolute best taste possible. The popcorn we use is some of Nebraska's finest "mushroom" corn, allowing for a bigger popped corn for more flavor coverage. Our caramel corn will knock your socks off. If is a family recipe that has been passed down to us. OBX Popcorn Shoppe prides itself on using the finest ingredients to ensure you get the best popcorn flavor you can get.
If you have any comments or suggestions for flavors you'd like to see added or tried please let us know. We love to keep our creative juices flowing.
