Joburgers, look alive – something oh-so-exciting has popped up and it’s taking Joburg by storm! Yes, the rumours are true, Joburg does in fact have its very own gourmet popcorn bar and word on the street is it’s too good not to visit… soon. The Maverick and Jane popcorn bar opened in Rosebank just a few short weeks ago but the unique foodie concept is already a firm favourite amongst those in the know. Here’s the low-down on the latest gourmet food craze to hit Johannesburg this summer.
Located in the food court at The Zone at Rosebank, Maverick and Jane offers hungry customers an exciting twist on a much-loved snack, and in super beautiful packaging to boot. The store is designed to look like a vintage mom and pop-type shop and is certainly eye-catching enough to ensure that you won’t pass them by without taking a peek (and maybe a taste).
But this isn’t just regular old popcorn with a pretty face, nope these guys are taking the timeless snack to the next level with a wide range of mouthwatering flavours that are created using only the best quality ingredients. The corn is brought in all the way from Nebraska (that’s some pretty well-travelled corn) and is popped fresh, onsite with the utmost care. From there the popcorn is flavoured and coated with real ingredients that are all packed with flavour and additive-free.
Customers can choose from a range of sweet and salty flavours including: Melted Cheese, Herb & Olive Oil, Butter, Peppermint Crisp, Caramel, Red Velvet, Belgian Chocolate, and Hazelnut Ferrero Rocher. And, to keep things interesting, the team behind the popcorn bar have promised to keep introducing new flavours and other exciting popcorn related products over the next few months.
A box of these gourmet treats range from R13 to R59, depending on the toppings and size ordered. Find Maverick and Jane at Shop FC14, The Zone @ Rosebank, next to Sweets From Heaven. For more information you can also say Hi to Maverick and Jane on Facebook.
