If you ever decide to visit our store, you can't miss our bright red and white striped awning in downtown Port Clinton, Ohio (The Walleye Capital of the World). Port Clinton also has historical significance, in that Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry captured the British Fleet a few miles off shore during the War of 1812, speeding up the end of the war and leading to a treaty with the British, which basically meant that they could have what is now Canada if they ceased trying to encroach on U.S. territory. (Enough with the history lesson already!)
Once inside our store, you can watch the World's Best Popcorn being made, and maybe even smell the aroma of Frosted Almonds or Pecans being prepared.
Because Port Clinton is located directly on Lake Erie, and because it is often referred to as the "Gateway to the Erie Islands", we get a lot of summer visitors. Just look for the red and white striped awning, or listen for the music on our outdoor speakers.
But if you can't stop by and visit us, you can still enjoy our wonderful popcorn, gourmet nuts, gift tins and numerous other gift items. At Great Lakes Popcorn Co. we specialize in unique, high quality gifts, perfect as fund-raising ideas for schools, churches, or your organization. They're great as corporate gifts to say "Thank You" to your staff or your favorite customers…. for that golf outing, tail-gate parties, or whatever. We can also prepare your popcorn orders in your favorite colors. Our motto is "We Aim To Please".
We have more than 30 delectable flavors of popcorn….from the old standards of Caramel and Cheddar Cheese to our special Island Mix, or Bubble Gum, or even Wild Walleye ! That's right….we said Wild Walleye, a blend of special Cajun spices that makes it one of the favorites. You can't be located in the Walleye Capital of the world and not serve something called "Walleye".
Besides the popcorn and coated nuts which we make every day, we can include other gift items such as Chocolate Coated Pretzels and other tasty treats.
