EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The demand for kettle corn has been keeping an Evansville business popping.
Donna Fickey says she thought she would be working part-time when she and her husband took over Pappy and Grammy's Kettle Corn from his parents seven years ago.
That has changed as Fickey tells the Evansville Courier & Press that the popcorn business now keeps her busy nearly seven days a week. She and her husband now make kettle corn in 20 flavors, such as cheesy caramel, chocolate cherry, spicy barbecue and sour cream and chives.
Fickey sells the popcorn at six farmers markets around Evansville and during the Vanderburgh County Fair. She says she loves hearing people say "The popcorn lady's here."
