Chad’s Carolina Corn was created by self-proclaimed “popcorn addict” Chad Huskey. Chad was working in the technology sector in Archdale, NC when he had what sounds like a mini mid-life career crisis. Did he want to spend the rest of his work life solving other people’s technical difficulties? The short answer? No! He wanted to spend his life making gourmet popcorn.
For us at Farmview Market, we are sure glad he figured this out because this popcorn is delicious! Even Chad himself seems surprised by the rapid success of Chad’s Carolina Corn. He’s a laid-back guy with a simple mission: to give people a small moment of joy in this fast-paced world. And if you’ve tasted his popcorn—mission accomplished!

Two of our made-from-scratch favorites are White Cheddar and Chad’s Mix, a sweet and salty combo of caramel and white cheddar popcorn, though all of Chad’s Carolina Corn are incredibly snack-worthy.
From zesty Buffalo Wing to a dessert offering like Dark Chocolate, Chad says the best part of his job is the creativity he uses coming up with the recipes. For inspiration, he starts by walking the grocery store aisles to see what jumps out at him. Once he has chosen the ingredients, he then pops the corn in enormous vats and hand-mixes everything to perfection.
The unique flavors of Chad’s popcorn are what really set his Carolina Corn apart from the popcorn competition. Try a few bestsellers in Farmview Market’s special Chad’s Carolina Popcorn Sampler, which contains Kettle Corn, Caramel Corn, White Cheddar and Chad’s Mix, and pick a favorite for yourself!
