What We Make at Cole’s

The Best Gourmet Popcorn in Colorado Springs


Not only do we make all of our gourmet popcorn in house, but we also make it better than anyone else.

Why do we say that? Because we don’t just spray or shake flavor onto our popcorn. We invested in special mixers that completely coat the freshly popped corn with flavor and give it a chance to get under the surface.

Since we are always adding flavors, you’ll want to come in and look at our menu. We’ve got a wide range of flavors like extra buttery, cinnamon candy and bacon cheddar popcorn. We offer samples to make sure you know which one to choose.

Our menu offers many options in several categories. Most of our popcorns are vegan and appropriate for people who avoid dairy products.

  • Simple and Tasty
  • Kettle Corn
  • Cheese and Savory
  • Candied Popcorn
  • Caramel Popcorn
  • Caramel with Nuts
  • Colorado Lifestyle Popcorn for hikers & skiers
  • Chocolate Popcorn
  • Extra Extra Flavor Popcorn

Our popcorn is always fresh. We offer six sizes of bags and encourage you to go home with the right size so it doesn’t get stale.

Paletas (Homemade Popsicles)

Don’t miss out on these delicious popsicles. We make our paletas on site with organic fruit and organic cane sugar. Some paletas, like our chocolate flavor, are creamy and made with coconut milk, rice milk and organic cane sugar. A few are even made with cows’ milk.

We change the flavors with the seasons and availability of organic fruit. Here is a sampling of flavors you might find…

• Chocolate Coconut
• Cookies & Cream
• Root Beer Float
• Peanut Butter
• Pina Colada
• Blueberry Lemonade
• Cherry Limeade
• Orange Dreamsicle
• Strawberry

We keep samples on hand. Taste before you buy!


What is a Paleta?

The Mexican Paleta is an ice lolly made from fresh fruit, comparable to a popsicle but so much more. Our Paletas are gourmet and made fresh in our kitchen.

The fruity flavors are made with fruits and sweetened with organic cane sugar. The creamy flavors are also made with fruits, organic rice milk, organic coconut milk, and organic cane sugar.
