Indianapolis (WTHR/CNN) - If you're like most people, you can't watch movies without popcorn.
But because of the drought, it might cost you more.
Fall is right around the corner, and it's always the peak period for popcorn sales.
While Just Pop In owners Carly and Mandy want to sell as much popcorn as they can, this season the twins might not be allowed to.
"Because of the drought, we are not allowed to have any type of unusual ordering. Meaning we cannot order more popcorn than we typically would," said Carly Swift.
The businesswomen tell Eyewitness News they are now paying nearly double for popcorn kernels.
Retail prices have jumped from about $20 for a 50 pound bag to $30 or higher, and it's all because of the dry, hot summer.
The twins buy popcorn from an Indiana distributor, and since they want to stay local, their business is covering those extra costs.
"It's a price increase for us," said Carly.
It's not just the price of popcorn prices that have gone up. It's also on oil. Corn oil has skyrocketed and the packaging for these ladies is up as well.
Popcorn lovers beware, you may see an uptick in prices at stores, especially as the holiday season arrives, and at the movie theater, the already high price for that salty bag of popcorn may go up.
The Boy Scouts' biggest fundraiser every year focuses on popcorn, and turns out the early buying by the Boy Scouts have kept their prices the same.
"At this point it hasn't impacted our sales, our supplies has already purchased all of our product ahead of the drought," said Nat Baker with Boy Scouts of America.
