Meet The Popkorn Kid…. Kroy
By: Mixed Talk Media | October 26, 2021
Meet Kroy an 8-year-old Atlanta Native who loves gourmet Popkorn. This love runs so deep; he created his own called KroyKorn.
Kroy, diagnosed with Autism in 2019, struggled like most children at the start of Covid-19. He quickly began to miss his regular activities, including Lunch Bunch, with his friends at school and movie nite with family. His life was changing with everything transitioning to virtual. It was tough because Kroy required consistency. He needed something to do.
One night he suggested a movie nite but was quickly remembered something was missing. It just wasn’t the same without his favorite Popkorn treat. The vendor was privately owned and had closed due to Covid.
Kroy had an idea and Kroy Korn was quickly born. He turned a problem into a satisfying solution. Kroy and his mom began creating different flavors of his Korn. The rest is history! He now offers fifteen different flavors and custom party-themed Kolor Korn.
KROY KORN launched his Karamel Korn on Amazon and was featured in Atlanta Parent Magazine, and Voyage Atl. He has supplied his Gourmet treats to Tyler Perry Studios (special Thanks to Collette Caters) and HBO’s Pause with Sam Jay (Special Thanks Yanise Monet).
His treats are quickly taking over Atlanta and causing people to wonder What’s Poppin?
