The Unique Shop In Missouri That Serves The Most Incredible Gourmet Popcorn
Usually, popcorn is a snack that we reserve for the movie theater or a sporting event. However, many sweet treat makers are seeing an opportunity to spruce up those popped kernels with some delicious flavors. One of those places is Funky Monkey Corn Company in Gladstone, Missouri.
Funky Monkey Corn Company only opened 3 years ago, but it's already established quite a quirky, yet delicious reputation.
Once you enter the shop, you'll notice a lot of monkeying around.
In addition to the Funkey Monkey decor indoors, you also may come across someone dressed in an ape suit outside or in the store on certain days.
Before deciding on a bag of popcorn to take home, treat yourself to a complimentary tasting.
The one-of-kind tour takes visitors all over the shop to try out each flavor.
With such a wide variety of popcorn flavors, you'll find something for everyone here.
Throughout the year, Funky Monkey updates their menu to feature seasonal flavors. Some of the more popular staple flavors include Wedding Cake, Monkey Bark and Funky Cheddar.
All of the popcorn is made with high-quality incredients.
You won't find preservatives or high fructose corn syrup here. Every single batch is made with locally farmed non-GMO corn, 100% real butter, 100% real cheese and pure cane sugar.
All of the art is locally sourced, too.
Funky Monkey loves to support local artists in the greater Kansas City area. They even host a young artist's show to showcase the area's budding talent!
They like to get funky all over the city.
If there's an event in or near Gladstone, chances are you'll see some of the Funky Monkey crew there. Whether it's a parade or festival, you can count on Funky Monkey to share their delicious creations to all at their booth.
During the summer, they'll sometimes set up games outside.
Arguing with someone over which flavor is best? Then just settle it over a game of checkers.
