Download the Cold Storage Catalogue from their website (it's in my links page as well as a number of other grocery stores). They show 6 different styles of popcorn. Catalogue can be found at the bottom of the page an is a downloadable PDF file. Enjoy.

I also have seen popcorn in NTUC as well. More than likely Jason's in Raffles City will have it as well as it's part of the Cold Storage Group.

I think I found them in the organic section or the potato chip section.

they defintely sell it at tanglin marketplace - last aisle where the chips are on the bottom shelf under all the boxed popcorn. can you tell we're a popcorn house too? :D
must say that it's not always super fresh (kernels don't always pop - or are kind of chewy). must say the best kernels i've purchased are at carrefour in the packaged spices/nuts section near the fruit/veggie area. you can't miss the section - it's all plastic packed stuff with the carrefour label (green).

Matney is right, for some reason they are in the organic section in Cold Storage. Red and clear packets, we buy them all the time. Haven't had any trouble with the ones we buy at all. Some of the health food shops like the ones in Tanglin Mall used to have it too, but cost a bit more.

I got some from Jason's at Paragon.

And the regular Cold Storage had popcorn too, but it was a generic local brand hanging on a rack in the same shelf area as a bunch of dried mushrooms and stuff. I would never have guessed I'd find popcorn there.
