Where to Eat This Weekend: Whatever Pops Up

Whatever Pops UpWhen you stroll through Larimer Square, make sure you stop at Whatever Pops Up, a gourmet popcorn store because the tastes you find here are unlike anywhere else.  You will find unique flavors like dill pickle, buffalo and blue cheese, pizza, cherry cordial, peanut butter and jelly or maple bacon- just to name a few!

Whatever Pops UpOwner Elizabeth Zimmermann is the master mind behind Whatever Pops Up, and she creates all the unique flavors on the spot in the store.  There are always new flavors coming in and out, so each time you come in you are bound to see something new to catch your eye.  The best thing is you can try a sample of a flavor before buying.  Zimmermann uses quality ingredients and keeps it simple without adding extra preservatives.  The kernels come from Indiana, are non-gmo and are popped in coconut oil.
