For a quick snack or take-away treat, visit Mountaineer Popcorn Company.

Things are popping in Shepherdstown. Tucked into a charming storefront on German Street is Mike and Erin Valasek’s Mountaineer Popcorn Company. Freshly popped and highly addicting, there are more than 20 daily rotating flavors, including Caramel Cashew, Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake, and tried-and-true Cheddar. It is made using non-GMO popcorn kernels, grown exclusively for them by Town & Country Nursery in Kearneysville.

Can’t make it to Shepherdstown? Markets and coffee shops from Leesburg to Charles Town to Sharpsburg carry it, or you can order a bag or a collectible tin online. Want to add a West Virginia-grown and produced food to your event? Mountaineer Popcorn Company can also accommodate bulk orders.
