The girls and I took Mama and Aunt Lori to the Dairy King today for a tasty lunch. While we were sitting in our van eating, a vehicle pulled in next to us. On its sides was some writing that caught our attention. When the driver exited the vehicle, Mama asked him some questions about his company that he represents. We were quite interested. Turns out he is a representative of Lakota Popcorn which is the first and only Native American owned and operated organization that produces, processes, packages and markets its popcorn which celebrates its Native American origin.
The representative told us that he travels around a 10 state area getting the word out about this fine popcorn and getting it onto grocery store shelves. He wound up giving us a 3-microwave-bag box and a couple of pre-popped corn bags. OH, MY GOODNESS!!! It is simply W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L and available right here at Mel's Foodliner. If you've already tried it, you know how delicious this is. If you haven't had the pleasure yet, you owe it to yourself now to give it a try!
It comes in a variety of forms and flavors:
2. Pre-popped and ready-to-eat
3. Unpopped that you can put in any corn popper either at home or in theatres, etc.
The company doesn't just sell popcorn, it sells jerky, etc. For more information, please go to
