Worse Than GMOs

I think we’ve all seen and heard the GMO food arguments and counterarguments. It seems like a pretty complex issue, but in reality, it’s dead simple. (If you need a primer on what a GMO is, check out THIS post.) First there are two distinct positions that keep getting mixed together. Advocating for the elimination of GMOs, and […]

Natural Flavors

(Here’s a promise from us, we’re always going to share exactly what’s in our product. No hiding behind natural flavors here – the photo above is some of our raw ingredients.) Nature and flavor might be two of our favorite things, so why is this word combo stirring up such a hullabaloo? For us, it comes […]


Harvest in Nebraska

This is a quick story of where our corn comes from. Four years ago Quinn Popcorn was an idea that would have never been realized if we couldn’t find the right partners. Kristy spent the first year of Quinn Popcorn in her attic, Quinn in lap, and phone to ear. She was talking to everyone in […]


Don’t Eat Popcorn This Thanksgiving

Do you love Thanksgiving? Do you love popcorn? Well, we have created recipes that incorporate popcorn into all of your Thanksgiving dishes! Just kidding. Even though we are big fans of popcorn, we know there is a time and a place. Snacking? Yes definitely! Part of Turkey Day dinner? Probably not. For Thanksgiving this year, […]


Lemon is Moving On

Sometimes life gives you lemons. If you loved our Lemon & Sea Salt popcorn, then sometimes is today. Lemon was one of our first flavors and a favorite of many here at Quinn. Our special, additive free, dried lemon is no longer available and Lemon & Sea Salt is going the way of Old Yeller, […]


Popcorn & Beer

​We’ve always enjoyed beer with popcorn and we know we aren’t the only ones. So ​we decided to take some time to really dig into the phenomenon. In other words, ​we stayed a little late Friday night, popped up some popcorn, and invited our friends from Sanitas Brewing Co. over to hang out. Pretty important stuff. Sanitas​ is a […]


Recyclable, Compostable, Plantable

At events it’s fun to have something to hand out, but we didn’t want something that would just end up in the trash. Charged with the task, I started looking for something USA made and recycled. That’s when I came across seeded plantable pins here. After doing some more research I learned that not only was […]


Cardboard, Glue, and Patience

The trade show circuit is a bizarre thing. For an obscene amount of money we get a tiny cube of space to occupy for three days. Our crew spends way too much time behind laptops and suddenly we are on our feet and putting on a show. We actually put a whole lot of energy […]


Quinn, Now Ready to Eat!

A little over two years ago we launched Quinn Popcorn by reinventing microwave popcorn. At the time, fixing microwave popcorn was the whole mission. The thing is, as our microwave popcorn gained traction we started to see that there’s a lot more work to be done. Now, I present our pre-popped popcorn, the first snack […]

A New Home

Kristy and I arrived in Boston five years ago to an apartment rented sight unseen. We drove 18 hours to get there with our dog Colby watching the changing landscape in the back seat. A dream job brought us there, and now pursuing our dream of owning our own company is sending us to a […]
