Rooster's Gourmet Popcorn has over 50 flavors—cheese, candied, caramel and chocolate—made fresh everyday. After a year in business, their owner Holly Walker-Roose says she's still thinking of new flavors all the time.
"I dream about it; I walk around the grocery store and always think of new flavors," she says. "It's hard to perfect a flavor. It's really just trial and error." The most popular flavors out of the store's 55 are the "White & Nerdy," which is caramel popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkled with nerds, and the "Buffalo & Ranch" popcorn. The newest flavor, pumpkin spice, debuted on Nov. 1 to honor the season.
"I'm from Texas, and there's a lot of popcorn stores down south," Walker-Roose says. "I thought it was a great idea, so when we moved, I did my research and brought it to Utah. Now, our clientele is growing everyday."
Rooster's will have a booth at the Salt Lake Family Christmas Gift Show at the South Towne Expo Center from Nov. 15–17. At their booth, costumers will be able to sample any flavor they want and popcorn tins will be on sale.
Rooster's Gourmet Popcorn is located at 11560 S. District Dr., South Jordan.
