Shirley’s Popcorn

August means football season is just around the corner. Shirley’s Buckeye popcorn is a customer favorite and pays homage to Ohio’s favorite college football team. The base for the Buckeye popcorn is Shirley’s classic “Carmel to Die for,” caramel popcorn topped with chocolate and peanut butter drizzle. Buckeye popcorn can be purchased in multiple sized containers, from individual servings to a 6 gallon tin.

Brinkman’s Country Corner

The deli case at Brinkman’s Country Corner is filled with unique and home-style salads, sandwiches, meat trays, and cheese balls. However the showstopper and bestseller of the deli counter is “Our Own Homemade Potato Salad” which uses Nancy Brinkman’s original family recipe. “It tastes like homemade, because it is homemade” explains Mark Wiechart, store manager. Customers have even been known to bring in their own bowls and Tupperware to pass the potato salad off as their own! It’s that good!
