Good Monday Morning! If I seem annoyingly chipper, it’s because I am. For the next few weeks, I’ll be working and playing from Arizona while I spend some time with my mom.
Although I already miss my guys who stayed back in Portland, I am LOVING the sun. It’s supposed to be 111 today and I kinda don’t care because I get to be in the SUN.
And of course, Mom has air conditioning. Let’s be real… a girl’s gotta stay cool too.
Traveling means lots of interesting sites, which will lead to some rather unique posts… like this completely unsolicited review.
Not long after booking my plane tickets, I saw an article for Popcorn Girl in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since we would be travelling through Vegas and I would have my own popcorn, loving girl with me, we made a stop to check it out.
The staff was super nice and allowed us to try all kinds of samples. Tess picked a Creamy Cheesecake that is a great alternative to caramel corn.
From sweet to savory all the popcorn is made fresh in the store. Mom and I like things with a bit of kick so we picked-up a small bag of Southwest Hot Wings and another of the Southwest Jalapeno. Seeing that our bent toward flavors with some heat, the staff recommended their Fire in a Bag, which is a combo of the two. The name is very appropriate.
Before leaving we also grabbed a bag of their Crazy Confetti so we could sample a variety of their fruity flavors. I’ll definitely be going back for their Rockin’ Raspberry.
If you find yourself in Las Vegas, it’s worth a stop. In addition to all of the amazing popcorn, Popcorn Girl carries vintage candy and decorative tins for their popcorn.
If you plan on ordering online, please be aware that the shipping is a flat rate of $13. I don’t completely understand that and it was a little shocking to realize I spent more on shipping than I did on popcorn to send home to Tyson and Evan. Woof! But sometimes when you’re traveling, you just gotta splurge.
Have you ever tried Popcorn Girl? Any tasty treats you are looking forward to during your summer travels? Do you have a “must see” destination while visiting Arizona or Nevada?
