Store Information

EC Pops is a deliciously whimsical gourmet popcorn and gift store in the heart of Ellicott City. Our store combines the best elements of a vintage candy store with our creative and delectable takes on traditional popcorn flavors.


EC Pops offers a huge variety of fun and flavorful delights that the whole family can enjoy. Our entire store is centered around our pride and joy—our popcorn! From tongue-tingling Jumpin’ Jalapeno Ranch to decadent Nutty Peanut Butter, we have a popcorn flavor for everyone. Our 50+ flavors are always rotating with the seasons and holidays, so you’ll never see the same range of flavors twice! All of our popcorn varieties are lovingly handcrafted in our own store using real popcorn, high-quality cheeses and chocolates, and only the best seasonings. Our popcorn is available as bagged popcorn and in gourmet popcorn tins to make a stunning gift basket for someone you love (or yourself—we won’t tell!).

Our storefront also features our delicious homemade fudge in craveable flavors like Caramel Chocolate Peanut and Orange Creamsicle. Still hungry? Take a walk around our 1,800 square foot store and have your pick of countless candy favorites from your childhood, like pick-your-own jelly bean mixes, juicy gummy bears, chocolatey candy bars, and even jawbreakers.

Our favorite new addition for the summer is our refreshing sno-balls. After weeks of refining our recipe (and lots of taste-testing), we are proud to offer over 40 icy cool sno-ball flavors at our storefront. The best sno-balls in Baltimore are perfect for a hot and humid day or a brisk summer night.

Looking for a gift to take back home? Our preserves and jellies, made from ripened fruit and slowly reduced for maximum flavor, are available by themselves and in gift baskets. For those craving a savory kick to remember us by, try our full line of barbecue and dipping sauces in stand-out varieties that include Smoked Chipotle and Honey Mustard.


Just like our gourmet popcorn, our drink selection is anything but ordinary. EC Pops has an entire wall dedicated to classic and extraordinary soda pops. Looking for classic Coke in a glass bottle? Wishing someone would create a Brownie Caramel Cream Root Beer for you to enjoy? Look no further! All of our sodas are kept ice cold in a vintage Coca Cola cooler, so you can pop the top and enjoy right in the store! We hold all of our sodas and drinkable delights to the same high standards we hold our popcorn.


Buzzing with energy, blasting vintage hits that transport you to the past, and wafting delicious popcorn smells to the street, our flagship store is something you have to experience to believe! From our storefront windows with imaginative holiday displays to our endless rows of gourmet popcorn, your family will return down Main Street already planning your next visit to our store.
