Yasmeen Tadia ’04
A year after launching Fluffpop Gourmet Cotton Candy, Yasmeen Tadia has launched Hotpoppin Gourmet Popcorn. Yasmeen’s love of popcorn stems from her childhood in South Africa, where popcorn was freshly popped and uniquely flavored for each customer. Wanting her young son, Zain, to experience a similarly creative and custom treat, she launched her innovative line of premium, handcrafted gourmet popcorn. “Hotpoppin is popped in small batches and features signature, indulgent flavors using only the highest quality of ingredients for a taste that’s like no other,” she says. Vegan and gluten-free options also are available. Along with the chef-driven flavors, the Hotpoppin team specializes in innovative and trendsetting popcorn bars and custom presentations at events, traveling worldwide with their unique creations.
