From grabbing a bag to enjoy while watching a show at Legends in Concert to snacking on the sweetness of Carmel corn from River Street Sweets, you can enjoy your favorite popcorn flavors all day and night at Broadway at the Beach. Before we dig into the delight, let's take a look back with a "pop" of history. A quick Google search tells us the first "pop" did not appear in the United States until the 1820s. As the snack grew in popularity, so did the variety in which it can be enjoyed including Louis Ruckheim's creation of Cracker Jack, made from popcorn, peanuts and molasses during the late 1890s.
Fast forward to today, the flavorful fumes of popcorn can be experienced all throughout Broadway at the Beach. In the warmer months, popcorn can be found at every corner with kiosks offering everything from candy corn to caramel corn to cheddar corn and more popcorn creations. It's a great snack to enjoy while strolling from store to store while you enjoy fireworks and other events at Broadway at the Beach. Don't forget, many offer free samples!
