Other Delicious Treats
Along with our more than 50 flavors of popcorn, EC Pops also offers a selection of candy, soda, and homemade fudge! Our delicious homemade fudge comes in rich, creamy flavors like caramel chocolate peanut and orange creamsicle. Our fun candy selection includes a wide variety of childhood favorites like gummy bears, chocolate bars, and pick-your-own jelly bean mixes. In the summer time, you’ll be able to come in and cool off with a sweet, icy snowball (or a snow cone, depending on where you’re from!). Be sure to pick up a jar or two of our homemade jellies and preserves to take home and enjoy with your favorite toast, biscuit, or bagel. You can even just enjoy them right off a spoon, we won’t judge! If you’d prefer something a bit more savory, EC Pops offers a full line of barbecue and dipping sauces made to smother over whatever you want!
Would You Like Something to Drink?
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 them right here in our store! We hold all of our sodas and drinkable delights to the same high standards we hold our popcorn.
Founded in 1772, the historic town of Ellicott City, Maryland is located on the bank of the Tiber River. Over the course of its history, Ellicott City has been home to several mills. Because of this thriving industry, in 1830 the town became the first stop for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O Railroad) outside of Baltimore.
Because of its close proximity to the Tiber River, a tributary of the nearby Patapsco River, Historic Ellicott City has seen several devastating floods over the years. Homes, businesses, and even some lives have been lost. But, after each of these terrible occurrences, the town of Ellicott City has banded together to rebuild and move on. The EC Pops family is proud to join this town of hard-working, perseverant people.
Our store is located at 8143 Main Street, but you can hear our up-beat music from a block away. After the awful events of the flooding in 2016, we saw how the people of Ellicott City and the State of Maryland came together to rebuild this historic town and we just knew that this would be our kind of place. EC Pops opened its doors in the spring of 2017.
Where the Magic Happens
When you’re strolling down Ellicott City’s Main Street, you will hear our music. Step into EC Pops, and you will find employees and customers dancing, having fun, and tasting our delicious popcorn. If you’re looking for something specific, all you need to do is ask. Everyone who works here is glad to help you find that perfect something, whether it’s for you or for someone else.
