While you’re staying at Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, consider a five-minute trip up River Road to the Popcorn Buddha — it is the answer to every popcorn lover’s dream. The popular shop has more than 80 lip-smacking flavors, made fresh every day in-store. Be prepared to spend a little extra time because choosing a flavor can be overwhelming. Fortunately, the patient staff will let you sample as many flavors as you want and, trust us, you will. While the Popcorn Buddha has traditional flavors like butter and cheese, these popcorn artisans take a walk on the wild side with flavors like Root Beer Float, Lemon Meringue Pie, Dill Pickle, New York Style Pizza, and Angry Lime. The signature flavor, “Popcorn Buddha’s Delight,” is a mouthwatering blend of caramel popcorn with pecans, peanuts, and cashews with dark and milk chocolates. There’s also fudge and, like the popcorn, it comes in a variety of quirky flavors, including amaretto chocolate swirl and jalapeño. Popcorn lovers come from all over the Poconos to find enlightenment through popcorn at the Popcorn Buddha. Seek and ye shall find.
