While strolling through Boothbay Harbor, ME in July we couldn't help but "pop" into Coastal Maine Popcorn Co, a colorful and creative popcorn store located on Oak St. in Boothbay Harbor. My curiousity was further piqued by the array of colorful popcorn behind the counter. Owners Paul and Jackie are definitely thinking - or should I say popping - out of the box, with 20 sweet popcorn flavors including Mai Tai, Sour Green Apple, and Black Licorice. Noting several other customers, both young and old, clamoring for the sweet popcorn flavors, I sampled several. New England Berry - yep, definitely accurately named. Marshmallow - yep, another home run. Raspberry - true to life, honest to goodness raspberry flavor. I purchased a bag of good ole' Salty Sweet. With the perfect balance of, well, salty and sweet, it was the best kettle corn I'd ever had. About 2 blocks later that small bag was empty, so we walked back to the Popatorium to buy a couple bags for the road. Another Salty Sweet, along with bag of Mexican Jalapeno.
