NORMAL, Ill. -- The "It's Poppin'" gourmet popcorn shop officially opened its doors Tuesday.

Customers can choose from more than 20 flavors, like caramel, pizza, and loaded baked potato.

Co-owner Sylvester Davis says the store serves a niche the Twin Cities had been missing.

"We had one in the mall that I believe closed down in December of 2009, and after that there was a void," said Davis. "So, they just really enjoy popcorn. We eat popcorn at the movies. We microwave popcorn. Now, you have a gourmet flavored popcorn and allows us to do movie nights at home, so it just enhances everything."

"It's Poppin'" is located at 1520 East College Avenue in Normal and is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
