It’s Christmas week!!! Are you ready? Are all of your gifts bought? Wrapped? Shipped? Are you driving far this holiday season? Are you staying home? Are you working? Are you getting to see your family? Are you spending the holiday alone? Will the weather cooperate so you can get to where you need to be and do what you need to do? Are you on Santa’s naughty list or his nice list??
I don’t know about you but the holidays are super stressful for me! My full time job is at a hospital and most the time I wind up working Christmas Eve or Day. This year I am off Christmas Eve but I have to work Christmas Day. Luckily for me my family does our big family Christmas on Christmas Eve but that means getting up that morning (I also have to work that day before) driving three hours to my parents, celebrating, and then driving three hours home so I can get up at 4:30am and go to work on Christmas Day. Ughhhh. I don’t even want to think about it.
One thing I do get excited about this time of year is getting out and having fun with my friends. Sometimes I just need to get out of my house, put on some real clothes and not think about the stresses of the holiday season. I am a single lady and while I do actually really enjoy spending time alone sometimes it’s nice to get out and hang with friends. I don’t know what your weather situation is but in Arkansas it is really freaking cold right now and that makes me not want to leave my house AT ALL. Ughhhhh.
Luckily for me the weather cooperated a little bit the other night and I was able to go hang with my fellow Arkansas Women Bloggers at The Pop Pop Shoppe in Little Rock. We got to hang out, eat way too much yummy popcorn and just talk. It was so much fun!!
We also got to shop and I think I came home with more of my fair share of popcorn! I plan on eating some and then giving some as gifts. So see? it was the perfect opportunity to hang with friends and get some last minute shopping done! I love when that happens…HA!
We also got to try all the popcorn flavors the Pop Pop Shoppe offers! I don’t know about you but I am a popcorn addict, I swear I go to the movies so much just for the movie popcorn, and I loved trying all of these yummy flavors! My favorites are White Chocolate, Pickle Pop, and Rajun Cajun!
It’s also fun to just grab some regular popcorn and top it at the topping station! There are so many fun toppings to choose from, I even saw some crushed up Oreos!! YUM!! I am definitely a salty mixed with my sweet kind of girl!!
If you are looking for some last minute gifts you can’t go wrong with some Pop Pop Shoppe popcorn!! They have some cute gift baskets already made up…
…and then they just have their popcorn flavors in different size bags. Pop Pop Shoppe popcorn would be perfect to have at any holiday gathering this year! I know my sister bought the Confetti flavor for my nieces birthday party and I had some at my Girl’s Game Night In and it was a big hit at both parties!!
They have some new holiday flavors that are sure to be a hit at any party!! There is a Hot Chocolate that is out of this world yummy and a Christmas mix that is super cute!!
So all in all I had a fantastic night at The Pop Pop Shoppe hanging out with my bloggy friends, drinking wine, shopping and eating yummy popcorn but it wouldn’t be a blogging event without giving something away right? So today I am giving away a $40 gift basket to one lucky central Arkansas resident!! Unfortunately you have to go pick up the gift basket yourself from The Pop Pop Shoppe’s Little Rock location on University Ave so if you aren’t local you can’t enter. SORRY!!!
So if you want to enter, head on over to my blog’s Facebook page and tell me what your favorite Pop Pop Shoppe flavor is on this pic…
Have you been to The Pop Pop Shoppe??
What’s your favorite popcorn flavor??
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
That sounds like so much fun! I would love to spend some time there. It all looks so good!
Would be the perfect gift for my friend. His favorite snack is popcorn and I know he would love everything in this shop.
Claudia Krusch says
My son loves popcorn! He loves any flavor, I can’t wait to check it out! It would be a great last minute gift!
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I have never heard of The Pop Pop Shoppe, are they exclusive to Arkansas? Or are they a franchise that you know of? I will look out for them, haven’t seen them yet here.
I used to work in a hospital I remember that meant no holidays. Especially since I don’t have kids, it is like the assumption was that it was OK for me to work every single holiday all the time.
This year I had a death in my family and I am personally not feeling very festive, but I have been curling up on the couch and watching movies, so popcorn would go with that perfectly! :-)
Right now they are exclusive to Arkansas, there are two here, but maybe they will expand in the future?? You never know!!
Oooo I love popcorn and all of those flavours would feel like heaven! There is something special about curling up with some popcorn and watching a movie.
Amanda @bephoenixfit says
This looks so fun! I’d love to try some of the holiday flavors.
I’m done with it all and it’s time to have have some yummy popcorn and watch Christmas movies! All these kinds look so delicious!
Louise Bishop says
Man, I always feel so out of the loop when reading lists like this. I had no idea all this existed!
Louise Bishop says
Oh my gosh, I love popcorn. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself with all those options.
Sheena Tatum says
This shouldn’t exist. It’s far too awesome!
I need to have a girls night out like this! I have never seen a store like this but I would be all about it if it was local!
This sounds like a lot of fun. I love popcorn and I wish we had a store like this here.
My Teen Guide says
I’m pretty sure that you had fun with these popcorn! It looks like a great idea for our Christmas party tonight (girls only).
Lisa Favre says
My nieces would LOVE the Pop Pop shoppe. Just looking at your photos, I can already smell the popcorn!!

We love to snack on popcorn. The Pop Pop Shoppe looks like a great place to try all kinds of flavors. I will have to see if there is a location near me.
Terri Beavers says
I’ve never thought to have a girls night out at the Pop Pop Shoppe. It would be a blast and a place we’d all love. Thanks for the idea, I’ll see if everyone wants to do that in January.
That looks like so much fun! What a great experience. I love popcorn! Looks like there are a ton of great flavors too.
Yum, I haven’t see the popcorn show. I love trying different flavors. Right now I am on a kettle corn kick.
