See you later!


Our shop at 95 Orchard Street is closed! We have heard from you, our customers, loud and clear, and you want the convenience of finding us on store shelves. So we are going to work on it and come back to you (in stores and online) later this year.

Closing our shop was bittersweet – we got to know many of you face to face and over the phone, and we loved getting your instant feedback and love. Over 5+ years, we built something special together – as customers, employees, vendors, friends and a combination of all the above. Please keep talking to us! You can find us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Until later –

We are Five! It’s hard to believe, but we opened our doors in 2012. What motivated us five years ago is the same thing that drives us now – making irresistible, pure popcorn for you and yours to enjoy.

To celebrate, we are going to give a birthday present to one of you, our amazing customers, every Friday in September, starting this Friday, September 8. You have up until Friday to enter for that week’s giveaway. The winner will receive a Karma Tin of his/her choice, to be shipped anywhere in the US. To participate, you must sign up for our newsletter at and share or retweet our anniversary post on FacebookInstagram or Twitter. You can enter to win every week! Check for new contest posts every Sunday in September.

Pop Karma at Sweetgreen for Summer Solstice

Pop Karma at Sweetgreen

To celebrate the Summer Solstice, Sweetgreen is giving out a Pop Karma Shot with purchase on 6/21/17! Photo courtesy @sweetgreen

Many of us at Pop Karma are avid Sweetgreen fans – we love the fresh produce, global flavors and carefully sourced ingredients. They feel like kindred spirits! So when they contacted us and told us about how they were celebrating the summer solstice, we were thrilled!  For the first day of summer, the first 200 Sweetgreen customers at the Union Square locations (18 E. 18th St.) in New York City will receive a Karma Shot of Kyoto Mix or Spanish Barbecue. What’s your favorite salad? Pretty sweet!
