Stella*s Popkern is a gourmet popcorn company in Washington, DC that makes unique small batch flavors using non-GMO popcorn and real ingredients. Born from her family tradition of making popcorn at home, Stella's Popkern (named after her daughter and surname of Kern), aims to bring yummy, flirty, delicious, gourmet and affordable popcorn to DC.
Currently operating a food truck, a brick and mortar store is set to open in Petworth on October 29, 2016. The team reached out to me to sample their products.

Made with high quality extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil along with sweet and savory spices, Stella*s Popkern is reasonably priced starting at $5.50 per half-quart or $16 per half-gallon. The tin of popcorn is a fabulous hostess gift or gift for any friend/family member.
I tried these sweet and salty flavors: White Cheddar Cheese with Old Bay, Caramel, and Black Truffle with Sea Salt. The Old Bay was a bit intense for me; the black truffle had a much stronger smell than taste, and the caramel was classic, very buttery and sweet.
Check out their new store and get some tasty popcorn for yourself. They also can create inspired custom blends for any special events upon request.
