We are a family-operated small business, Johnmark & Diane Cooper and on special events, one of our original partners, brother-in-law Steven Ratnik. We serve the Brock / Durham / York Region with delicious, quality hand-popped kettle corn done the old fashion way in small batches. When we started the business back in 2010, we had no idea what to expect. What we found out is that we love to make people happy as they experience this burst of yumminess!!
If you have been to a festival or farmer's market in the Durham region, undoubtedly you may not have have seen us but definitely have wondered "Where is that wonderful smell coming from?"..
Your senses - especially sound & smell - may have led you to our bright yellow booth. The aroma of popcorn & sugar floating through the air has tingled your nose and as you approach the source of the sweet smell, the "explosion" of sound coming from the kettle fills your ears.
The only sense left is the taste.... you are expecting salty/buttery popcorn...you pop a few big round bites into your mouth... "What is this?" your mind asks.... definitely not what you were expecting to taste. As you start to walk away, your brain & your taste buds have connected to your nose & ears and now all are working together to have more!!! You turn around and walk back to the booth. Another satisfied customer!! This is the experience 'newbies' go through as they experience "kettle corn" for the first time. Even though it was been around since the 1800's, the way the American settler's enjoyed their snacks...in Canada it has started to become more popular in recent years. It is more commonly referred to here as "sweet & salty popcorn". Snack lovers love kettle corn as it satisfies cravings for sweet and salt with an added "crunch" in one delicious handful.
Popcorn is considered the number one healthy snack food. It it a good source of fiber and fills you up quicker than traditional snack food.
