APMEX Popcorn is Coming to Town

12/11/2008 11:32:00 AM, Posted by APMEX, 16 Comments

It goes without saying that this has been a volatile year for the market. No matter where you look, it seems like all the news is bleak. However, at APMEX, this year has been a record breaker – thanks to our loyal customers.

Every year, to say “Thank You”, we send out Christmas popcorn tins to some of our best customers. We love to show our appreciation every year to the people that make our efforts worthwhile. It’s that time of year again – time for another record to break!

The APMEX Popcorn Elves have been up their pointy ears in shiny new popcorn tins. They have been working hard all week to send out over 7,600 popcorn tins this year. That’s right: over 7600! We tried to narrow the list to about 4,500 customers (one semi load), but there were so many others we wanted to include in this year’s festivities.

We simply couldn’t ignore them. So, at the last minute we ordered an additional 3,100 tins (a second semi load) to get a few more in the mail just in time for the holidays.

The APMEX Photography Team had the chance to snap rare pictures of the “elves” at work. We hope you enjoy the pictures and the popcorn as much as we enjoy sending it to you every year.

Enjoy the popcorn and have a happy and safe holiday season from everyone here at APMEX. Don’t forget to come back to APMEX in 2009!

Thanks for the corn! I thought it was my silver buffalo's at first. But it was WAY to light! Guess thats what the UPS guy was trying to deliver yesterday?! Keep up the good choices/service! Brian

Hmm. It's like waiting to see whether Santa says you've been naughty or nice. Don't blame you, APMEX for not publishing just how good of a customer one has to be to be put in the "nice" column. I am, though, understandably curious.

Got my popcorn two days ago. What a nice surprise! The gift was a little cheesy, but it really buttered me up. The carmel corn was delicious too. Thanks again.

No popcorn for me again this year. Oh well, there's always WalMart.

I wonder just exactly "how nice" do I have to be to get a popcorn tin.

Anonymous @ December 23, 2008 at 8:13 AM

Oh well, guess over $20K in purchases doesn't rate a tin of popcorn. Hmmm...makes one wonder just what is considered "good" enough. Oh well, we still wish a Merry Christmas to everyone @ APMEX anyway!!!

Just to let everyone know.

We have received a great many returned Popcorn tins this year... So if you haven't received a tin, you may want to double check your shipping address at

Please understand, we would love to send a popcorn tin out to EVERY customer - you are all highly valued and greatly appreciated. However, this is simply not feasible to do with the volume of customers we have. It is a daunting task to trim the list down to a manageable size every year – this year we sent out almost 3 times as much as last year!

The popcorn tins are not a way of segregating the “who’s who” or an elite list – just a way to say Thank You.
