Notable Quotes

“I was so surprised how many flavors I loved. I knew I’d like the cheese flavors, but when I tried the Ghirardelli Chocolate, the peanut butter with Jiff Peanut Butter, WOW! I felt bad asking to try so many samples, but when you have so many to choose from what do you expect. You gotta try them all.” —Sarah D.

“I saw the big Popcorn sign and had to stop. I love popcorn and this is the best. I bought several flavors and took them home to my family. They ate them up—literally. LOL Glad you are here on our Pleasure Island.” —Island Local
