[box size=”large” border=”full”]Why its awesome: what isn’t awesome about a store that specializes in the creation of new and fun flavored popcorn? With popcorn that can be any flavor you can imagine, on top of being delicious, what’s not to love?[/box]When in Old Town Lansing, be sure to stop by Cravings Gourmet Popcorn & Soda Pop Market. “Like Old Town, Cravings is that one of a kind specialty shop that’s become a destination stop,” says David Gregware, owner of shop next to Cravings, Tallulah’s Folly. Cravings Gourmet Popcorn was created in 2007 by Chad Jordan. It was originally located in the Lansing City Market in downtown Lansing. Then in 2010, they outgrew the market and moved to their current location in Historic Old Town Lansing. “It has been fantastic here; Old Town has been perfect!” Jordan says about the move. Chad created Cravings because popcorn is a key factor in many of his childhood memories; from watching wrestling with his grandpa while eating popcorn as a small boy to eating popcorn while watching 90210 with his friends as he grew into a teenager. “Chad is one of the most energetic entrepreneurs I’ve ever met,” says Gregware.

At Cravings, Jordan specializes in creative, new flavors of popcorn and always welcomes suggestions from customers. In the store, you can sample several of these unique flavors. Cravings signature flavor is the Premium Signature Gold: it’s sweet & salty with just the right amount of flavor and butter. They also have a large inventory of different flavored, old fashioned soda-pop. Everything that can be found in the store can also be found on their website for those too busy to make the trip to Old Town (although it is strongly recommended that everyone does make the trip!)As Gregware sums up, “Cravings and Old Town go together like popcorn and butter.” This popcorn, with all of it’s unique and tasty flavors, is definitely worth the trip into Old Town. Be sure to go in to try some for yourselves! ~Leighanna Whiting, Regional Director‘Like’ Cravings on Facebook

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
