"Get Popped at Kernel Cody's"
Since opening March 13, 2009, Kernel Cody's has popped thousands of pounds of popcorn. From a century-old brick building at 125 N. Cody Road, once the home of the town's telegraph office, it produces and sells 25 varieties of flavored popcorn such as Snickers, caramel, white cheddar, peanut butter and the popular LeClaire Mix, a combination of cheese and caramel corn.
Also sold are chocolates from Lagomarcino's Confectionery, old-fashioned candies, and soft drinks. The resulting ambiance is that of an old-fashioned candy store.
Portions of the building's original tin ceiling, an old Coca-Cola machine and miniature vintage tractors from Wiley's collection add to the fun. Corn is popped and flavored in open view of customers, which provides both visual and olfactory delights.
LeClaire's river heritage is visible from the back door, where there is a view of the Mississippi River, the Buffalo Bill Museum, and the Lone Star steamboat.
