Yellow Mushroom Popcorn

Mushroom-style popcorn is denser and more compact than butterfly-style popcorn. Since mushroom popcorn does not include any breakable "wings" like butterfly popcorn, it holds up well against stirring and coating processes.

Great for Toppings

Thanks to the larger surface area, this mushroom-style popcorn is the popcorn of choice for caramel corn and kettle corn. It can even be used to add gourmet glazes for decadent, sweet popcorn treats!

Consistent Results

These kernels deliver a consistent product each and every time. Simply follow the instructions on your countertop or freestanding popcorn machine to properly prepare. When popped, these kernels feature traditional yellow color that will grab your customers' attention, ensure high-volume output, and maximize profits! Pop kernels at 400 degrees to form a full, round shape. 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.
My mushroom popcorn resembles the shape of butterfly popcorn, what am I doing wrong?
Mushroom popcorn requires a high temperature of at least 400 degrees in order to produce enough steam to open the kernels into their round shape. Popping mushroom popcorn at too low of a temperature or in the microwave will likely result in butterfly-shaped kernels. For best results, use the hot air of dry flow-through machines to achieve the perfect mushroom kernel. Although hot oil can also be used when making mushroom popcorn, a lower percentage of round kernels will result.
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.
