Portage, Wisconsin - Popcorn Heaven
It's kind of a "must do" stop if you travel to western Wisconsin, or thereabouts. Just one block south of Hwy. 33. on Hwy. 51 (Wisconsin Street), this munchie heaven is only a 1 minute detour off the beaten path, and worth the experience!
If you thought theater popcorn was the bomb, wait till you encounter Craig's drive-thru popcorn.
What flavor would you like?
Blue Raspberry? Jalapeno? Ranch?
If you think buttered popcorn is ordinary, think again. Craig's is so laden with delicious butter they have to double bag in plastic just before handing it out the window. (Butter is only an extra 10 cents. Yes, you read that right!) I personally like it just the way it is! The popcorn is freshly made, not popped the day before, so it is super crunchy and flavorful.
The price is right, too! Small medium and large run anywhere from just over $1 to barely $3 for a GINORMOUS bag for the family......
Craig's also sells hot dogs, ice cream (in a zillion flavors), and other treats.
Inexpensive, delicious, and just simply one of those places you can take the family for a mini adventure!
Craig's is open after 3 p.m. on weekdays, but opens earlier at 1 p.m. on weekends.
