Detroit Water Ice launched its line of handcrafted, gourmet popcorn—Brown Bag Popcorn—in 2017. 

By spring 2018, Brown Bag Popcorn grew into its very own sister brand to DWIF, partnering with Plum Market to sell its bags in their Ann Arbor, Bloomfield, West Bloomfield, and Detroit Metro Airport stores. Later that year, a popup opened at The Somerset Collection through the holidays.

A full-fledged Brown Bag Popcorn retail store returned to the Somerset Collection in September 2019.
