Hey, the Block Needed Some Pop...
Really, that’s the story - the “block” in this case being Block Island.
Co-founders, Lisa Rose and Justin Hetherington (mother & son) with his wife outside of their flagship Block Island retail store.
Block Island is one of those hidden gems. Located 13 miles off the Rhode Island coast, Block Island has a decidedly quaint, New England harbor town vibe, great beaches, world class seafood, biking, hiking, fishing that’s second to none, and much more. In fact, seemingly around every corner, there’s a quirky little shop selling all kinds of treasures.
But there was no “pop”. Or more specifically, there was no popcorn. And you can’t have fun without 20+ flavors of Popcorn, can you? So we changed that.
In 2016, the flagship Pop On The Block opened in New Shoreham (Block Island), RI. We feature 20+ flavors from our own recipes, which offer a taste treat unlike any other (you’ll be amazed at how good we can make popcorn taste). We also offer several premium concoctions that mimic popular candy bars and similar. Throw in a little creative razzle dazzle (Popcorn Pizza, anyone?), and you have the makings of a real treat. People love coming into the shop, and our exceptional popcorn makes a great gift as well.
From Block Island to your home, Pop on the Block brings you the best in high quality, gourmet style popcorn. The kernels are popping, the flavors are fantastic, and the fun is just beginning. Check us out, and get ready to enjoy popcorn like never before!
Our popcorn is perfect for any occasion – snacking, parties, fundraisers, giving as gifts…everyone loves a little Pop On The Block!
