Pop Popcorn combines myriad unique flavors with pretty packaging, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

“We have expanded our offerings to include truffles, featured popcorn flavors, sodas and candy that customers have requested,” says owner Betsy Cummins.

Cummins was brought into the industry by her sister-in-law Carol Davis, who opened Crave Popcorn in Plano nine years ago. After seeing her success, Cummins decided that Lake Highlands and the Dallas area needed a spot of their own.

The shop celebrates one year with champagne Jan. 28, right before their busiest season of the year.

“We are expecting Valentine’s season to be very busy with custom orders for children, schools and businesses,” Cummins says.

The shop plans to introduce three new specialty Valentine’s flavors — “Cupid’s Crush,” “Chocolate Cherry” and “Amaretto Love” — which will be phased in during February.

Producing and selling desserts isn’t always as sweet as it sounds. As such, Cummins is very intentional about making sure her family is deeply involved in the process. Whether it be her Lake Highlands family or her husband, and two children, the shop and its employees have their priorities right in line.

“At any given time, you may see all four of us,” says Cummins, referring to her husband Alden, and her daughter and son, Caroline and Carden. “Our employees are all local, and we treat our employees as family.
