Our founder Jean Tsai was on CNBC’s Power Lunch explaining the origins of Pop Karma. You can check it out here.

We did a full day of filming at the shop to get those two minutes. Somehow the CNBC crew of producer Karen Stern and cameraman Bob Briscoe made it a blast! Here’s a behind the scenes photo of the crew in action.

We worked with Tache Artisan Chocolate to bring you this addictive flavor – it’s an antioxidant rush from the dark chocolate and the popcorn that goes straight to your head. Seduce tastebuds with this limited edition flavor, available in store and online.

Pop Karma is one of Vanity Fair’s Best Holiday Popcorn Offerings!

Pop Karma is one of the Best Holiday Popcorn Offerings

We love the holidays so we were especially thrilled to see ourselves in Vanity Fair’s Guide to the Best Popcorn Offerings Out There this Holiday Season! One of our customers studied the list and informed us that we were the only organic corn of the bunch.

We think Karma Tins and Big Karma Tins are the perfect holiday gift. They are shareable, which makes them perfect for offices, gatherings, and families (the holidays are all about communal celebration!). Just put one out and watch the popcorn disappear. People gather to talk over and about the different flavors, and they come on their own time to grab a cup of inspiration.

pickleIt’s time for Pickle Day! Everyone talks about the bustling Lower East Side of the past, when everyone came to shop the great clothing deals and pickle vendors populated the area.  For one day every year, this heritage comes back to Orchard Street via Pickle Day.  Orchard Street is packed with revelers since food and retail vendors line the street between Houston and Delancey Streets, including pickle vendors.  Join us for the fun!  We’ll be serving Pickle Popcorn!

Taste of the Lower East Side 2014

tles_logoAs proud Lower East Side community members, we are proud to be back at the Taste of the Lower East Side for the second time (even though we aren’t yet two) on April 24.

As the Lower East Side is a food and drink mecca, this event is a who’s who of offerings. In addition to being a fun taste sensation, it supports Grand Street Settlement, and last year’s Taste raised $420K for their programs. Here’s to an even better year!
