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!

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.
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.
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.

    little large kernels great flavor economical create corn cooks buy
    Kernels are large, the product very clean. I use an air popper, and the mushroom popcorn did not get 'stirred' by the airflow as much as with smaller kernels due to their size & weight, but they still popped up great. I found that the same volume of the mushroom popcorn (measured as unpopped) as the butterfly type, did not pop up with quite as much 'loft' as the butterfly type, so if you go by popped volume, keep that in mind. Excellent popcorn!
    This popcorn has great size and.flavor. It cooks up well with little waste. The kernels create large, puffy bites of popped corn It's an economical buy.
    i was so happy to find organic mushroom popcorn. i love how all the kernels pop and this popcorn is so tasty - best popcorn ever
    The Reist 50 pound HI-POP organic mushroom popcorn kernels were an excellent find. I can not find organic kernels around my town and love the quality of the popped kernels. A great taste as well.
