What We Tried: Cookies ‘n Cream, Strawberry Balsamic, Blueberry Balsamic, Mexican Hot Chocolate

Our Take: Friendly service, inventive decor, and a delicious product a good popcorn shop does make. Founded by two brothers and their friend, the trio is constantly creating new flavors for us to enjoy. Flavors start with either a cheese or caramelized base and range from savory to spicy to sweet. The best part is that every flavor still maintains the light, airy nature of popcorn, unlike a certain famous Chicago popcorn chain. So light that you and your roommate could polish off two bags without even noticing (not that we would know). We LOVED the balsamic flavors. Keep an eye on Popcorn Asylum’s latest flavors on their Facebook page or website, and be sure to stop in soon!
