About Cole’s Gourmet Popcorn

“We’ve been blessed so we like to bless other people.” –Cindy Cole

Let us tell you a story.

A family of two parents and three kids came into the store some time ago. The dad didn’t look well, but he was as excited as the kids about the nostalgic candy. We gave them our tour of the store and the family looked around, laughed and enjoyed samples together.

They left after about 20 minutes, but the mom came back in a few minutes later to thank us for being patient with her ill husband. You see, he was dying and the family had come in so that the kids would have one more happy memory with him.

Stories like this show how our store is more than a place to buy candy. It’s a part of the community and we take our role as a place to have fun seriously. We work with schools to thank teachers and with churches to make sure ill and elderly neighbors are doing alright. We make frequent donations to local charities and we relish the opportunity to be part of weddings, company celebrations and neighborhood events.

We even offer discounts for military, first responders and teachers. “We’re all about caring for children and young people in the community,” says Tom Cole.

Just like you, we’re part of our neighborhood, our city and our beautiful state. And as members of the Colorado Springs community, we want to be part of the story of building strong relationships and happy memories right here.

“OK this is the coolest little popcorn/candy shop ever!!”

-Stephanie B. on Facebook

Cole’s Gourmet Popcorn wants you to have fun. Local business owners Cindy and Tom Cole always said that if the space next to their promotional goods shop ever became available, they would open the best popcorn & candy store in Colorado Springs.

People say things like this all the time, but Cindy and Tom were serious. Tom became an expert in candy and house-made treats by visiting popcorn shops all over the country and when the salon next door moved out, this independently-owned candy shop became a reality!

In February of 2015 they opened for business. Not only did they paint the walls a cheerful yellow and make sure there was lots of light, but they also paid attention to the details that make customers happy.

  • Savor fresh popcorn made with state-of-the-art mixers that fill it with flavor
  • Make your friends and clients happy with pretty gift baskets full of Colorado treats
  • Relive a bit of childhood wandering the shelves where you’ll find 90% of the nostalgic candies available
  • Cool off with something new! We make paletas right here in the store
  • Enjoy our treats knowing they are made with organic ingredients whenever possible

People come into the store for all sorts of reasons. Some people are looking for a specific candy that they remember from their years growing up. Others bring their kids for some fun family time.

Some are even orthodontists looking for treats to congratulate patients who have just gotten their braces off!
