The journey of Yum Yum’s Gourmet Popcorn began in June of 2012 in Southaven, Mississippi. Currently, there are two locations, one in the metro Memphis area, and one in Southaven, Mississippi.

Popcorn lovers and new converts often stand in lines all the way out of the door and around the building. There were security guards inside these facilities just to maintain order. This was fascinating and Samuel McClenton had to know the secret!

We specialize in yummy popcorn flavors such as our #1 top seller, caramel/cheese mix (Chicago style), then pecan caramel, cheddar cheese, birthday cake, and chocolate swirl, and our rainbow flavors consisting of a mix of watermelon, strawberry, blueberry, grape, green apple, cherry, and vanilla popcorn flavors. We also carry that old-fashioned butter-flavored popcorn. Our recipe beats any movie theater’s popcorn because our corn is “melt-in-your-mouth” tender!

We also carry popcorn tubs and tins in several varieties including, one, two, 3.5, and 6.5 gallons sizes. We will mix any tub or tin with any combination of popcorn flavors we have in stock. Try, one-half cheddar cheese, and one-half white cheddar popcorn. We got you as the tubs/tins come with a three-way divider inside, which separates three popcorn flavors. Perhaps you want a whole tin or tub of the fiesta mix popcorn, not a problem! Better yet, mix a little bit of it all in one tin or tub. We’re here to please.

We use the absolute best ingredients on our popcorn. Yum Yum’s popcorn is kept in glass warmers in order to maintain the fresh, crispy taste, and colorful look. You will smell the alluring and addictive popcorn flavors before you open our doors. Walking into the shop is like walking into a huge popcorn bag. You “melt” and smile. Yum Yum’s Gourmet Popcorn is a happy place. Satisfaction is guaranteed.
