Little Lad’s Popcorn is based on a 25-year-old family recipe that began in a bakery in Maine. Maria Fleming created the recipe, and her son Orion is now making this same delicious popcorn for the next generation. He and his friend Arthur opened a production facility right here in Brattleboro, Vermont, where they have better access to distributors. This dynamic duo has replaced soybean oil with sunflower oil in the recipe and updated the packaging so the popcorn stays fresh longer. In their spare time, they also achieved several certifications for their popcorn (kosher, gluten-free, GMO-free, vegan, soy-free), which is a LOT of work. Best of all, according to Co-op staff, their popcorn is delish and more-ish, the perfect snack.
Come try it and meet Andrew from Little Lad’s on Friday, February 16th from 11:30-2:30.
