Director of Sales and Operations/ Founder
Nitro Pop, like many startups, began with a simple idea. Jason Shah was watching the Food Network after a long day at work and noticed how nitrogen could be used in cooking. An experiment in the kitchen led to a new discovery and Nitro Pop was born in 2013. Jason is the Founder of Uncle Pops and is the inventor of Nitro Pop.
Absolutely. Nitro Pop is popcorn that is deep frozen. It is served at a temperature similar to ice cream. All of the ingredients used are safe to eat.
We also have a special straining and measure method that pairs with popcorn that is designed to receive nitrogen.
Similar to ice cream Nitro Pop warms up fairly quickly. You can expect it will stay smoky and cold for a couple minutes.
Average Setup time is 30 to 45 minutes but will vary based on ease of parking and loading area at each venue
