Thanks for voting Kernel's #1 in Popcorn/Candy!

We here at Kernel's Gourmet Popcorn and More think we have some of the finest Gourmet Popcorn, Candy, Chocolates, Nuts and more that is offered any where in the world.

But no one wants to hear what a company has to say about itself. So we thought we would let the customers do the talking.


I am a popcorn lover and have tried popcorn from around the country. Once I found Kernel's, I became a loyal customer. It is the best popcorn ever. I live in southern Illinois, but order from Kernel's whenever I'm in the mood for some great popcorn.

I am converted. I will no longer travel to Chicago to buy Garretts. I have compared your mix with Garretts and I no longer desire Garretts. I have converted 4 others and the all agree your popcorn is the best. Better taste as well as price wise.

I want to start off by saying Kernel's Gourmet popcorn is the best popcorn I have ever tasted in my life. I use to drive all the way downtown to buy Garretts popcorn. Garretts cheese popcorn doesn't even come close to Kernel's cheese popcorn. You all are the best. I make sure I buy a bag of popcorn once a week. So Garretts eat your heart out.

Kernel's Gourmet is by far the best popcorn I have ever had in my life. I have tried every popcorn ever made (including Garrets) & KG blows away the competition hands down. In is my last meal in my will.

Kernel's Gourmet Popcorn & More's popcorn is BETTER than Garretts. I didn't think it was possible. You have to try it and you'll become a believer
