It takes dedicated family members, great employees, and loyal customer to be successful. Combine these elements with hard work, time, and popcorn and you get the greatest popcorn ever!
Carroll’s Corn was founded in 1993 by former swim coach Pat Carroll. With a desire to bring new and local businesses to Rochester, he narrowed down his choices of business to either open a gourmet popcorn store, and a video store. You can obviously tell which option he chose and here we are today!
Over the years the team has grown, things have changed, and we’ve moved from our first 200 sq ft location to the subway of the Kahler Hotel, in the heart of the Mayo Clinic.
As a favorite for Mayo Clinic employees, and visitors alike, Carroll’s Corn aims to offer the the best popcorn out there, as well as lots of options for snacks, drinks, and coffee. We want to offer a place of solace, popcorn, and fun to all of our customers.
Stop on in and you’ll see Pat, Seamus, and Red hustling, joking, and making the best caramel corn the world has ever seen.
Regular Popcorn: Our regular popcorn is the base for our cheddar cheese, caramel, and caramel with cashews, but you can eat it alone if you'd like. We pop mushroom kernels in coconut oil and lightly coat with butter flavored salt for that movie theater taste.
White: If you'd like a more healthy option, this is the one to take. Our white popcorn is popped in canola oil and does not have any salt, butter, or flavoring on it. It may sound bland, but it's pretty tasty.
Cheddar Cheese: We coat our regular popcorn with different combinations of cheddar and white cheese to create an ultimate cheddar that'll turn your fingers a nice tint of orange (don't say we didn't warn you).
Caramel: We are famous for our caramel corn!!! No need to compare us to those guys in Chicago, we have them beat! Don't believe us, ask the hundreds who've told us so, or better yet, try it for yourself. This aint no Cracker Jack's caramel corn!
Triple Mix: Formerly known as "Chicago Mix," this mixture has new identity but not new taste. This mixture offers a little sweet (caramel), a little salty (regular) and a little cheese (cheddar) for a perfect combination that will excite your taste buds. Great for parties! This trio is our most popular and it's delicious!
Caramel with Cashews: Who doesn't love caramel coated cashews? You heard us. Our cashews are coated with the caramel coating used to make caramel corn and combined with our famous caramel corn.
Half Caramel and Half Cheese: Some find this the perfect combination - sweet and cheese. We offer this combination in our party bags and tins.
3 Way Divided (Regular, Cheddar Cheese, & Caramel): Tins only. Some people don't like different flavors of popcorn touching. With a divider, you don't have to worry about it!
Kettle: Our newest classic flavor. Salty and sweet all in one bite!
