Del's Popcorn Shop had it's beginning in Decatur, Illinois in 1934, and brought its irresistible treats to Springfield, Illinois in 1980. The shop is a quaint, old-fashioned confectionery where the caramel corn and cheese corn are hand made right in the front window in gleaming copper kettles with wooden paddles. The walls are covered with popcorn memorabilia and antiques and two belt-driven ceiling fans churn away below the original tin ceiling.
Del's specialty is popcorn with flavors ranging from the traditional buttered corn, caramel corn, cheese corn, kettle korn and popcorn balls to gourmet flavors such as White Chocolate Caramel Corn, Peanut Butter Popcorn with Peanuts, Del's Deluxe (caramel corn with almonds, pecans and coconut), Charmel Corn (cheese corn coated with caramel), and Milk, White or Dark Chocolate Popcorn and Caramel Corn.
In addition to popcorn, Del's offers freshly roasted cashews, almonds, pecans and peanuts and hand-whipped fudge in six flavors. They also carry over 100 varieties of candies, gummies, truffles and chocolates, including sugar-free varieties, and chocolate coated pretzels and savory snack mixes. Del's is also a full-service ice cream parlor with 8 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream and more than 27 flavor of soft-serve frozen yogurt. Milkshakes, sundaes and smoothies are also on the menu.
Del's prepares seasonal items such as popcorn hearts at Valentines Day, popcorn bunnies at Easter, caramel apples in the fall and peanut brittle for the holidays. Decorative popcorn tins are a staple, and Del's custom designs gift baskets, gift boxes and gift towers all year through.
