An established icon in Wheaton. The old fashioned candy store where your kids (and adults) get to pick single candies and mix and match. The popcorn is spectacular white. MUCH better than any movie popcorn. Hope it stays forever!

Went to Little Popcorn store for the first time as a college student, then continued as an adult and now as a grandparent. Great warm popcorn. Penny candy and old time hard to find candy for those sugar inclined.

This is such a great big little place. Candy is at great price and the popcorn is always fresh and delicious. Just really the best to take kids, it will blow their mind off.

This is a must for any candy person or family with kids. So small but cute place. Must try it. Lots of variety and single pieces that is weighed. Many items just a few cents.
