Hmm, I just went to their website to check it out. There are two options that I see for you.
1. It's a franchise business - you could open your own Kernels! And given how it seems you don't have any comparable popcorn stores in Chicago, it wouldn't have any competition - you could make a killing.
2. It seems like you can order products from them directly. Strangely, the order form only lists four of their flavours (I can vouch that Jalapeno Jack is wonderful as well, and I'd guess that White Cheese is pretty good). You should email them and see if you could get your hands on some other flavours. You might also be interested in flavours like Cheesy Dill and Wild Buffalo Wings. If you have kids, they might like Superkid - the pieces are brightly coloured (red, blue, green, yellow) and, if I remember correctly, they're sweet.
The only issue is that shipping might getcha. And I'm not entirely sure if they'd send the popcorn to you pre-popped or if you'd have to figure that part out yourself.
Their FAQ says that the popcorn keeps fresh for 2 months so they might pre-pop it for you.
It also provides a toll free number for ordering at 1-888-267-6262, which might allow you to get Dilled Out or other flavours.
I thought of an Option 3. Kernels sells the flavouring itself in little shakers (like salt and pepper). If you can't do option 1 and option 2 doesn't work out, PM me and I could look into buying a few shakers and sending them to you. Then you could just add it onto regular microwave popcorn!
