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.

This one is ok very small kernels hard to pop . Small but mighty in taste very tender as well. Kinda a acquired taste. Brings back memories of going to the pumpkin farm and they give you a cob of dried corn & you pop it in a brown bag in microwave.

super quality and super value - great for our school fair - everyone enjoyed it - fun seeing the red kernels and so very fresh too

Carnival King produces the best kernels for popping. Even cooking them with the stove-top method, or an at home air popper, most of all the kernels pop. We flavor ours with butter flavored popcorn salt and it’s better than the theater because it’s always hot and fresh.

The Reist 50 pound red butterfly popcorn kernels are great. The kernels are a wonderful quality and pop up beautifully. They are great for our church festivals.
