Don Trapp, a familiar face at the Optimist Ice Arena, shares why he chose Popity Popcorn as their concession stand supplier over three decades ago: "I've been ordering from them since I've been here in 1985. Popity Popcorn consistently has the best products."

And what keeps customers coming back for more? According to Trapp, it's the irresistible allure of our popcorn. "Many come to the facility and say we have the best popcorn. That is a favorite for sure. Some people say the popcorn is what they look forward to when they come!"

What sets Popity Popcorn apart? Trapp sums it up succinctly: "Great, quality products. Everything tastes great and is top-notch."

As for their regular orders, Trapp reveals, "Popcorn and popcorn oil are number one. Then nacho cheese and supplies, caramel corn."
