It’s National Popcorn Day and we’re sure you’ll find something a-maize-ing at these shops.

Anna’s Gourmet Popcorn
With a variety of fresh-popped favorites to choose from, Anna’s offers monthly seasonal flavors (January’s pick is Jalapeno White Cheddar) as well as unique palate pleasers like Birthday Cake. Visit the website and check out the flavor calendar to see what’s available. 2 S. Broadway, Lebanon, (513) 480-1206

Patty’s Old Fashioned Popcorn
Patty’s peddles the kind of wares that are throwbacks to the days of the penny candy store. You can get its popcorn in a sports-themed tin (Reds, Bearcats, or Bengals—take your pick) or an retro replica of an old school red-and-white striped popcorn bag. Whichever one you choose, you can fill fit with your favorite gourmet popcorn flavor. 3437 Michigan Ave., Hyde Park, (513) 533-2676

Mama Made It Kettle & Gourmet Popcorn
Head over to Findlay Market for some of Mama Made It’s kettle-cooked popcorn. The high-quality kernels bloom “mushroom style” when heated, which end up being denser and more compact than “butterfly style” kernels. Have your fill of caramel, cheddar, Chicago style (cheddar and caramel mix), or traditional sweet. Mama’s is only open on Saturday and Sunday but you can pick up a bag at Mama Lo Hizo any other day of the week. 117 W. Elder St., Over-the-Rhine

Al’s Delicious Popcorn
Al’s hasn’t opened yet but it’s already highly anticipated among kernel aficionados. The Columbus-based gourmet popcorn shop plans to open in the old Park + Vine space on Main Street in Over-the-Rhine this winter. While you’re waiting, you can visit the website and get 10% off of your purchase today only in honor of National Popcorn Day. 1202 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 993-7677
