“Pop”ular Flavors

Find your perfect flavor! Do you like savory, spicy, sweet, or a combination of flavors? Cornology has something for every taste preference. For those who love the classics, they have Movie Pop made with real butter, Sweet Corn, or Double Cheddar (made up of Vermont and California cheeses). For those wanting a little kick or a savory sensation, try the Jalapeno Cheddar, the Truffle Parmesan—made with herbs and white truffle oil—or the Gilroy Garlic (our favorite, of course!). Cornology even makes seasonal flavors, such as boysenberry. Be on the lookout for new flavors!

Sweet & Decadent

If you’re looking for something sweeter, Cornology has some great options. Try their Logemann’s Caramel—a buttery caramel corn made from a family recipe handed down from one generation to the next. For a little crunch, try Whole Lot of Nuts—Logemann’s Caramel with roasted almonds and peanuts. For the chocolate lovers, try the Chocolate Drizzle—sweet corn drizzled in Guittard milk chocolate, or the Dark Chocolate Delight—plain popcorn drizzled in Guittard dark chocolate and sprinkled with Himalayan pink sea salt.

Ube (Purple Popcorn)

For a very unusual (and colorful!) treat, try the Ube Caramel popcorn. The Logemann’s Caramel is drizzled with a mix of authentic ube extract from the Philippines mixed with vanilla white chocolate. The ube is a purple yam originally from the Philippines that has a sweet, nutty, vanilla-type flavor, and is often used in desserts.

Not One Size Fits All

Bagged sizes range from the mini—a great one-person snack size—all the way up to a large—a great size to share with family. The premium flavors (Milk Chocolate Drizzle, Dark Chocolate Delight, Whole Lot of Nuts, and Ube Caramel) are a little pricier and come in a small or medium only. You can also purchase popcorn tins—perfect for gift-giving—or unpopped kernels to make your own popcorn at home.

Happy Lemon originated in Taiwan and has brought their tea culture to the world, serving hand-crafted teas, smoothies, and slushies made with fresh ingredients. 

Lemon Teas

Try the trademark refreshing lemon tea. Add freshly-squeezed lemon to a green or black tea, or try other delicious flavors, such as the Yakult lemon or kumquat lemon jasmine green tea.

Fruit Teas

If you want to expand into other fruits beyond the (happy) lemon, you can also choose from a variety of fruit teas. These include green teas with passionfruit, grapefruit, strawberry, strawberry black tea, and more.

The options range from classic and boba milk tea to some impressive options like milk tea with Oreo and puff cream, boba milk tea with pudding and jelly, mango orange with crystal boba, Ube milk tea with taro puff cream and taro ball, and taro milk tea with boba.

Salted Cheese Teas

If you’re even more adventurous, and you like a creamy texture in your tea, try Happy Lemon’s salted cheese teas. The salted cheese—a foamy, creamy layer made of cream cheese, whipped cream, milk, and a little rock salt—is added to the top of a tea. There is even a special technique for drinking it. Instead of mixing in the white, foamy top layer, tilt your cup about 45 degrees and sip so that you get a mixture of sweet saltiness with your sip of tea.

You can enjoy salted cheese in a variety of teas, including black, green, jasmine, and milk teas. Unique ones include fresh dragon fruit lychee juice, fresh mango juice, and the dessert-in-a-glass chocolate smoothie with salted cheese. One of the most popular with customers is the simple black tea with salted cheese, with perhaps the perfect blend of tea and sweet cream.

Happy Lemon also offers smoothies and slushies. Thick, tasty smoothies range from fruity mango matcha, mango Yakult, and dragon fruit Yakult to strawberry milkshake and fresh taro milkshake. Refreshing lemon slushies range from lemon and mango lemon to grapefruit lemon and dragon fruit lemon.

Bubble Waffles

If you want to add a snack to go with your drink, Happy Lemon has bubble waffles. To order these, you choose a base: original, matcha, or chocolate.

Pair your waffle with your drink of choice.

Happy Lemon offers a wonderful variety of fresh teas and drinks to suit everyone’s tastes. Whatever refreshing or decadent drink calls to you, the staff at Happy Lemon are happy to welcome you in and make you a memorable, unique drink!
