Extra Large Size

While different crops across the country yield different kernel sizes, these Missouri grown, extra large kernels are known for their consistent and reliable crop yields. This size offers more surface area for coatings and glazes to stick to.

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!

Convenient Supply

Compared to large bulk bags of popcorn kernels, these popcorn kernels are packaged in a 5 lb. bag that's less bulky, easy to handle, and easy to store.

Easy To Use

Simply follow the instructions on your countertop or freestanding popcorn machine to properly prepare.

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.

    The quality of this product is skeptical. The date says its fresh. When popped it is gummy and they after if sits awhile it changed to normal texture when eaten. However when coated it goes back to being gummy. I ended up throwing out the whole bag.

    WOULD NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE! This Mushroom popcorn has AMAZING flavor and the big size of the popped kernel helps hold various powders for our flavored kettle corn!
    i could not believe that there were only about 5 kernels that did not pop. it is the best tasting popcorn that I have found
    It was a great popcorn kernels for popping. I still popping the same kernels and get the perfect results for customers in my popcorn kiosk
    I love This extra large mushroom popcorn it pops up nicely had a crisp texture it goes well with all my many flavors I offer
    A great variety of popcorn kernels that works great for making our kettle corn. The large mushroom kernels pop up beautifully and have tender texture.
    These kernels are the best! Huge 50 lb bag for 20 bucks is an incredible deal!! You make so much profit off these products and the kernels are huge!
    Perfectly large mushroom popcorn. Popped beautifully. Holds caramel sauce very well and looks very appealing. Can also use for "family movie night". Kids loved it!
    Great popcorn! Cooked this on the stove top when my friends were over for the game. Popped up nicely and everyone was impressed with how big each piece popped. Add a little salt and pepper, and that is all you need.
    We love this popcorn! We will be reordering it because it was a big hit with our family. The kernels pop large and turn out a little chewy when popped in our air popper, which we like. If we want fluffier popcorn we cook it on higher heat on the stove. The bag was large enough to share with our grown children, make caramel corn for gifts, and enjoy for snacking too. Even with the pricy shipping it's a good deal.
    These popcorn kernels are just like it says, extra large. They pop up so big, you won't believe it! Makes great caramel popcorn too! It's a must have!!
    I purchased Carnival Kings 50 lb Extra large mushroom popcorn kernels to accompany my Commercial popcorn popper I also bought from the Webstaurant store. It’s awesome and an excellent value and I dont have to worry about running out. We store it in the large airtight containers we purchased from the Webstaurant store for easy access right in our pantry.
    These are by far the best popping corn for my business. Will recommend and only buy these in the future. Are very large and have no kernels left in the end.
    When I found this popcorn, I was looking for bulk non-GM popcorn for our ever-expanding family. With 8 kids to feed, large mushroom popcorn that pops most the kernals and leaves very little unpopped is super friendly to our family budget! Besides the kids beg for it regularly! And I have yet to find this amount of non-GM popcorn for anywhere close to the price. We are sold and will be buying for years to come!
    I’ve ordered the Carnival King Mushroom Popcorn in the past and have been pleased. However, with this last order I was not satisfied at all. While there may have been a few mushroom kernels mixed it, the vast majority of popped kernels appeared to be butterfly with many wings. I had to halt production of caramel corn due to potential waste and broken ‘wings.’ That being said, I sent a photo to WebstaurantStore customer service and they gladly agreed to provide a refund. Two Stars for Carnival King “Mushroom” popcorn. Five Stars for WebstaurantStore.

    The carnival king extra large mushroom kernels are really nice quality and make a great fluffy popcorn. The popcorn is soft and crunchy and no hard centers. A great snack.
    This brand is a Great popping corn. The mushroom pop popcorn is large and fluffy. Works great for both sweet caramel toppings and savory creations too.
    This popcorn is exactly what is advertised. For eating, it is not our preferred choice as compared to the White Butterfly popcorn, but this popcorn would make a great choice for novelty items like popcorn balls or as an addition to other foods. It is not as tender as White Popcorn, but that would be good if you are trying to mix flavors, syrups, etc into the popcorn to create something.
    Absolutely love the mushroom kernels! They pop nice and big with very few kernels left unpopped. Perfect for kettle popcorn. I was able to use half a cup and get the same volume of popcorn as 1 cup of the regular kernel. Saves me time and money!
    I love popcorn made from these nice large kernels! Product made from these is great, large, taste great and it is really consistent! You will love it!
