AIRMONT -

An Airmont popcorn shop is exploding in popularity after it was featured on Oprah Winfrey’s 2018 "Favorite Things" list.

Popinsanity, located on Route 59, caught Oprah's attention during a chance encounter with a staffer at a trade show and made it onto the mega-star's favorite list for the holidays.

The company makes 15 flavors of gourmet popcorn from scratch, including cookies and cream, sweet and salty and caramel chocolate drizzle.

The business is run by two friends who started out just a few years ago trying different recipes in their basement.
