Holy F this stuff is great. I live in Texas and got a sample mailed to me and it was the best I ever had. Now I have to get out of my budget and order this because it has now become a need and no longer a want. Thank you guys

Hands down the best popcorn I’ve ever had! The team greets everyone with a kind word and an offer to sample a new flavor. My dad is hooked just like me and drives from Henderson every week for a refill.

The mad popper is a must try. It all started with a business relationship when (my company was hired to replace their store flooring), Mrs. Ginsberg kindle asked me if I would like to try some of their flavors. Every flavor I tried was more delicious than the previous one . This was my first experience with this concept but what can I say me and my team just love it !!! We will definitely be back .

We received it as a gift, and it was the most delicious popcorn I have ever had. We live in Pinehurst, is there a way to order?

Delicious jalapeño cheddar popcorn! Variety of interesting and unique flavors, I look forward to trying more. A happy surprise when I wandered into the shop while I had time prior to another appointment in the same shopping center

Delicious kernels of heaven. The Mad Popper Blend is on-point. The Old Bay makes me feel like I’m at the beach. The Kettle Corn is made using an elaborate process involving an industrial-size pot (stand back) - but don’t stand back for too long because that kettle corn is coming.

Oh man. Andrea, I hope you see this. The Mad Popper has been a cornerstone of making North Carolina feel like home after moving here with my family about a year ago. I take my 3-year-old son in with me every Monday for a refill, typically the flavor of the week. You can get great local flavors (QShack!) and some really unique ones as well (Peach Bellini? What?) And if you're lucky, you'll get something drenched in white chocolate, like the cinnamon roll, or cookies and cream. Mercy, please, it's amazing. The only thing as good (or better) than the popcorn, is the people. Andrea, (and Katie, and all the folks who work here) for those who don't know, is an incredible individual who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. We can't miss a week; it's built into our budget. I often get one savory flavor for my wife, and a sweet one for myself (especially if they've made Toffee). My wife has made it plain that getting her weekly fix is the only thing that makes Mondays manageable. And my son demands he carries the refillable tin for the whole round trip. It's not just popcorn, it's a bucket of love. Go here. Feel good. Eat popcorn.

Went here for the first time today! The ladies were super helpful and friendly since we just wandered in to check it out. We got a strawberry/caramel/white cheddar mix. It's so good!

The popcorn flavors are mostly delicious! The popcorn itself seems pretty decent too. The service is usually fast and friendly, I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

Prepare to have your taste buds delighted with all the different selections offered for your popcorn snacking experience. Yes experience. So hard to choose a favorite flavor. But if you must choose, The Mad Popper is a good choice. Also love the green apple and cherry combo that is offered only during the holiday season. Whatever your fancy may be, you will not be disappointed.

The popcorn here is really yummy with a lot of flavors to choose from. Get the Maple (fall/winter flavor) if you can--it is delicious!! It's pricy for popcorn, but you can get a good deal by buying one of their tins that you can then refill with 11 cups for only 5-7 dollars. My only wish is that they made Poppycock-like mixes with dried fruit and nuts. However, their status as a nut-free facility must be great for folks with kids with a nut allergy.

My boss got us all a snack ton from here and I loved the Green Apple so much, I had to find this place. So happy I did! I've only been here twice, but I'll continue to come back because the ladies I've met here are so cool and happy! They let you try every sample you want and help you come up with cool combinations. I have never loved popcorn, but if you do, this is the place to go! I've taken my best friend, mother-in-law and aunt-in-law, and they can't get enough!

Customer service was amazing!! In the mist of preparing for a baby shower mommy to be and myself (aunt to be) realized we did not have enough popcorn for party favors. In a panic I called Mad Popper to see if they could help us in any way possible. I swear I called Mad Popper 4 times in an hour trying to figure out a work around. Every single time I called I was greeted with kindness, patience, and understanding. Staff were just as invested as we were in trying to get this dilemma handled with such a short turn around. Ultimately, I was able to walk away with a party sized bag of popcorn just in time for the baby shower. Mommy to be was extremely relieved and the baby shower was beautiful. To top it off, the popcorn was great! I will definitely be returning for any and all of my popcorn needs. Thank you again Mad Popper

Overall experience was great. This shop is very easy to find on Google maps and there is plenty of parking in the shopping center. The staff were very friendly to greet us inside and they have many popcorn options to choose from. I purchased the TMP Blend and it was quite good! They have many different sweet and salty flavors as well as some tubs of cotton candy, orange, blueberry, etc in the back. Pricing is pretty good as well, you can see the photos for the different bag sizes. Overall it is a pretty nice popcorn shop. It is not my favorite popcorn in the state, but it was pretty good and I would go back to try some new flavors.
