Last Royal Oak visit, we decided to get some Popcorn at Dale & Thomas. Purple spoon has opened in the same space and I guess its a knock off of pinkberry. I’ve never had the latter so I can’t compare the two.
I really loved the signs, design and feel for the place. There was a huge image of a corn field that was lit and it set a light and happy tone for the location.
Many popcorn flavors like you see below, from BBQ to cheddar-chipotle. We tend to be sweet salty luvin kinda ppl so we went for…
…The chocolate Chunk Caramel. We ate it for 2 days, and it was divine. The cookies n creme would be interesting to try next time.
Very cute decor, very bad acting on my part.
I loved how they presented the popcorn, in the farmers wood buckets.
In the back the popcorn was popping away, the smell wafting beautifully thru the room.
They had a turning urn thing that you add the flavor to and it keeps rotating to cover all the popcorn.
They made the chocolate caramel by drizzling it all over a pan of popcorn, and letting set.
It was crunchy, fresh, sweet, salty and perfect. I loved that there were big chunks of chocolate here and there. It was a really good treat.
As for the Purple Spoon part of it, the decor is a bit more modern and minimalistic. It’s theme doesn’t mesh 100% with the farmers theme of the popcorn part, but it’s not too bad. Also, if you buy the popcorn first, they will give you a coupon (1$ off) of the icecream.
Positives is the low calorie. Negatives are that flavors are limited, but they cycle them. I had the original tart. It was good. Not great, but good.
You can add toppings for 75 cents each. I’m not a toppings fan in general, but if I were going to try something it would be the fruit or candy. I would skip the cereal.
The frozen yogurt was good, but I don’t see myself ever craving it. I’m a bit of an ice cream snob i guess.
As for the popcorn, I loved it, and my glass ball says there is more salty sweet popcorniness in my future.
