PUBLISHED: 11:30 23 June 2013

If you find your nostrils twitching to sweet caramel smells this summer, you will probably be close to a new venture called OD Popcorn, which is touring Redbridge.

Barkingside businessman Dan Lion, 39, of Beaminster Gardens, is visiting fairs and festivals with his business partner Oz Oliver.

They will be offering popcorn in a variety of unusual flavours, including apple, curry and piri piri – and sweet and salted of course.

The tasty snacks are produced in an American-style kettle corn drum in front of hungry customers.

Dan said: “You get the corn popping out all over the place and the smell is incredible.”

The business is visiting Wanstead Rugby Club’s fun day in Roding Lane North today, West Hatch High School’s summer festival in High Road, Chigwell, on June 29 and Clore Tikva Primary School in Fulwell Avenue, Barkingside, on July 14.
