Jody's Popcorn

My love of popcorn goes back a long way.
When we were in college, my husband Alan and I took date night strolls down the streets of Chicago sharing caramel corn. Alan even hid my engagement ring in the prize envelope of a Cracker Jack box giving me the surprise of my life. To this day, he still won’t tell me how he got the ring in to the sealed box!
When we moved to Virginia Beach, we realized that the area was missing out on fresh caramel corn and that is when the idea for Jody’s Popcorn was born.
The popping began in 2005 when we opened our store at the 31 Ocean Shops. We were determined to create a caramel corn more delicious than any of the commercial brands. It began in our garage, where Alan tweaked batch after batch of caramel corn until the recipe was just right. Our motto was “Amazing or Bust.” After 53 tries we knew we achieved “amazing.”
Although we have grown out of our garage we still put our popcorn through the same rigorous trials and use the best ingredients to achieve amazing flavors!

Do the Jerky-ey!

Lynda and Marcia are fans of the old Western movies – John Wayne, Clint Eastwood (Marcia just calls them The Duke and Clint, of course). In their opinion you can’t really call yourself a true cow”person” (wanna-be) unless you’ve eaten jerky and tried riding a horse.
So they decided to figure it out on their own. They decided that it was very important to create a jerky that was as natural as could be and as healthy as possible. They spared no expense in using the leanest cuts, the lowest fat in the ground meats, and only the necessary amount of preservatives in anything they do. They decided that everything should be homemade in their own kitchen. This was a very time consuming adventure, and as they went along experimenting, they shared their discoveries with their neighbors, friends, and work associates. After awhile, they found ourselves filling request orders. Seems as though they had finally discovered the jerky that matched their image of the old West. And people liked it! Hence, “Do The Jerk-ey!” was born.
