Muggles Market Spotlight: Tastebuds Popcorn

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2018! Today, we are delighted to announce the return of Tastebuds Popcorn to our third annual Muggles Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Jay Pithwa took a few minutes to answer some questions about his business and general geekery.

  • What items are you bringing to the Muggles Market this year?  Various fun and geek themed gourmet popcorn, including our ButterBeer popcorn!  
  • What was one of your favorite things from the Muggles Market or Geek Gala last year? I enjoyed the variety of vendors and the cool mix of guests! 
  • What is something on your ‘bucket list’ you would like to do or try?
    Climb Mount Kilimanjaro!
  • Who is someone that has been inspirational for you or mentored you in your craft? Chef Padma Lakshmi.  
  • So this year’s Geek Gala theme is “Gears and Ghouls”, and focuses on steampunk and day of the dead cosplay. If you could have one body part cybernetically enhanced or replaced, what would you choose, how would you want it changed, and why? My arm – full on terminator style with unlimited abilities!
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, November 3 at this year’s Geek Gala
