Como Gopro

Como Gopo is mid-Missouri's own gourmet popcorn.

Husband-and-wife team Nicholas and Brooke Bartlett make batches of gourmet popcorn, or “gopo” for short, by hand for their company, Como Gopo, based in Columbia, Missouri.

The rotating flavors, available for purchase online or at various events and retailers in Columbia, frequently incorporate local ingredients: The queso gopo uses Columbia-based Boone Olive Oil Co.’s smoked chile pepper-infused Harissa olive oil plus a spice mix from local Lilly’s Cantina, and hellfire caramel uses Shotgun Pete’s habanero barbecue sauce.

Infused flavors like the Logboat Mamooted Chocolate flavor, which blends the Columbia brewery’s Mamoot English mild ale with chocolate and sugar, and the Infused Chocolate Java, which combines chocolate from The Candy Factory, ground coffee beans from Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. and Schlafly Beer’s Coffee Stout, can be purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Columbia.
