Pittsburgh is poppin’! And I’m not talking about the latest dance move by Hines Ward.  Pittsburgh Popcorn Factory moves to its own beat, popping out the tasty kernels that will have our taste buds doing the tango.

Here’s a warning though,  the fun flavors can quickly become an obsession: Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese, Crunchy Caramel, Sweet ‘n Salty Kettle, Chunky Chocolate Caramel, Smacker Jacks, and many more.

On what should have been a relaxing day in the Strip, I was on a mission. I headed straight for Pittsburgh Popcorn Factory.  When we arrived my mouth watered as I watched an employee drizzle warm chocolate over the freshly popped corn.   I asked for the two fastest-selling flavors of the day– as long as one included some of that chocolate!   It turned out the best sellers both included chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Chocolate Carmel.  But when I got home I had two bags of Chocolate Carmel by mistake. Looks like I just found my excuse to make a return visit!

The store is owned by Rob and Genalle Day, a husband-and-wife team who met while working in NYC at a popcorn store.  Their love affair with popcorn has exploded into three locations:  Downtown on Liberty Avenue, the Strip District on 21st Street, and a brand new one in Oakland on 5th.  But if you can’t make it, you can always order online —  an especially wonderful taste of Pittsburgh for homesick college students.

Find them on the web here.
