This place is a landmark right on the strip. They have great Caramel corn, kettle corn, cheese corn, etc. Buy a plastic bucket full and you can bring it back in for $2 off your next purchase.

We stopped in for a snack while walking up and down the main strip in Gatlinburg. We were hoping for a pretzel but they'd run out, so we opted for the cheesy popcorn instead. What a treat!

What? We stop in here every time we are in town for our popcorn fix, cause there is no other better. Usually the same folks waiting on a couple of people at a time, but the other night we walked in to four workers, three of them new faces, waiting on one customer all looking at each other like what...

This place has been in Gatlinburg forever it seems and it still has the best Carmel corn there is. Every trip involves a stop here and the quality and taste is always the same great taste.

What do you mean dropping the K from your name. We noticed! Always a must stop in Gatlinburg. Been around for years! Right on the strip. My fav is the carmel popcorn with no peanuts. Always great quality. :)

Good popcorn, a bit over priced for what you get. Popcorn was fresh and tasty. Store was clean and service was good.

Several choices of popcorn are offered. My favorite is the caramel corn with peanuts. A little pricey but expected in a tourist town. Small store located on the Main Street

Karmelkorn is always a must stop for my family. The carmel popcorn is so fresh and delicious. The staff are so friendly and chat with you while they are getting your order ready. Even on busy nights they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It's also a blast to watch them make it! The smell alone... More

My little mother-in-law (97 yrs old ) always had to have a bucket of fresh Carmel Corn from this place everytime we would go ourselves or would take her. This store is very clean and the staff is always so friendly. They have all flavors of popcorn but, Carmel corn is my favorite.
