Mythbuster: It’s Poppin, a new café meets candy store meets ridiculous popcorn lab with hundreds of housemade popcorns ranging from the semi-normal to the what-just-happened-here, now open in Buckhead.
This is the brainchild of a local cake shop owner. So don’t be thrown off by all the handspun cotton candy, jelly bean cases and funnel cakes floating around everywhere. Make no mistake about it... you’re here for the vodka. Popcorn. We meant vodka popcorn.
It’ll be that multicolored fluffy stuff behind the white marble bar to your left. We’d recommend starting off with something entry-level like Peanut Butter Kiss or rosemary-garlic. Then, when you’re ready, go ahead and step things up a notch. Margarita, perhaps. Maybe test out that buffalo wing concoction. Peach vodka: don’t mind if you do.
And should you feel like going it alone, have them customize a flavor for you. Anything you can dream up. Like bourbon-pineapple-sriracha popcorn or lobster thermidor popcorn (this is snacking, not a game).
Eventually, they’ll be getting a liquor license. Which... not necessarily standard popcorn shop procedure. But they just thought you could use some spiked frozen drinks alongside your spiked popcorn.
These are very considerate people you’re dealing with here.
