    With the graduation season ramping up, and Father’s Day right around the cor- ner, Island Popper Gourmet Popcorn is rolling out gifts and specials just in time for summer.
Island Popper is committed to crafting “gourmet popcorn, all the way,” and the local busi- ness has introduced a new gift option to honor that spe- cial graduate: a customized popcorn lei! Each Custom Lei ($15) features 4.5 cups of popcorn, which will stay fresh for six weeks. Custom- ers can customize flavors or
mix and match to personal preference, and even uti- lize specific school colors for an individualized touch, as well as colored ribbons representing specific school graduations.
The Island Popper team asks for at least three days’ lead time for the custom, made-to-order lei, which are also available for shipping via Cus- tomer-favorite Sealed Cups (four for $14, add 25 cents each for kakimochi or fea- tured flavor) are also great for graduation gifts as they hold 2.5 cups of popcorn and stay
fresh for at least two weeks. These sealed cups can be or- dered in single flavors, mixes or featured flavors — just like the lei.
Those looking for a larger gift are in luck as Island Pop- per’s XL Bags are on special all summer long at $48 for three bags (add $2 for ka- kimochi or featured flavor). These larger bags are per- fect for the special snacker in your life, and these and oth- er customized orders can be placed at, or by calling 808-888-0101.
