Blue Butterfly Popcorn

Butterfly-style popcorn has irregular shapes with light, fragile wings protruding from all sides. Coming in a naturally blue kernel, this popcorn has a tender flake with a nutty flavor once it's popped. Additionally, blue popcorn is higher in some antioxidants than yellow kernel popcorn.

Versatile Snack

Enhance your popcorn with a pop of sweet or savory flavor using popcorn flavorings and seasonings, or stick to the widely popular, traditional salt and butter toppings. For every 1 cup of unpopped kernels, it is recommended to use 4-6 tbsp. of oil.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

How should I store and pop my popcorn kernels?
Store your organic popcorn below 50 degrees Fahrenheit and your conventional popcorn below 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The popping temperature for the kernels should be around 440 degrees Fahrenheit.
What’s the difference between mushroom popcorn and butterfly popcorn?
The primary difference between mushroom and butterfly popcorn is the shape of the kernel. Mushroom kernels are more round and compact which provides a larger surface area for coatings to stick to, making it perfect for gourmet confections such as kettle and caramel corn. Butterfly popcorn has a more irregular shape with a number of protruding wings that allow butter and salt to be trapped underneath, making it great for movie theatres and concession stands.

Beautiful kernels. Almost all pops in the microwave. 50 lb of kernels with very little husks and broken kernels. Easy snack that the kids can make in the microwave. Add butter and salt and it is delicious!

We have so enjoyed the blue popcorn. The flavor is mild and a little nutty. It seems lighter in flavor than the normal popcorn available in grocery stores. Left only a few unpeopled kernels.

The Reist 50 pound blue butterfly kernels are a great, unique option for popcorn. They pop up really nicely and the taste is really great. We love it for our fall festival.
