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.

    The popcorn had a nice shape and color, however we noticed it seems stale when it was popped. Maybe it was exposed to too much moisture in transport or storage.

    These are fantastic popcorn kernels, for a great price as always. These popped up bigger than the store brand ones I was previously using (which I preferred over the expensive OB brand). In fact, I have had to cut down the amount I use since my Whirley-Pop fills up and I can't turn the handle anymore!

    The popcorn kernels are pretty good but some kernels are unpopped and they are a decent size for the money. They are better than most store generic ones.

    These popcorn kernels are great and they work just as advertized. I purchased this 5lb. bag (as opposed to a larger one) to test out the quality of the kernels and how they pop. They end up being medium to large sized and the butterfly style works great for my butter and salt to stick to it. My customers loved it, and tasted no difference between this and a common store bought brand. The only thing to be concerned about is the packaging. It comes in a big bag- not a plastic box or anything. I would reccomend having someplace to dump the bag into so you can scoop them up without fear of the bag tipping over and getting kernels everywhere!

    I ordered carnival king popcorn for my kids since they love popcorn so much. The kernals are huge and they lone them. I will be buying it for now on from this site.

    Popcorn popped up just the way I like it! The price for these popcorn kernels beats my grocery store price, and the quality was great. I prefer the white popcorn over the yellow popcorn, so I was glad to see that choice was available. Will buy again soon!

    A wonderful price for 50 pounds of white large butterfly popcorn kernels. It works great with our popper and the popcorn is great. Works great for making caramel corn as well.

    This type of popcorn, the White Butterfly kernels, is our family's favorite. We use it in our popcorn machine, also bought from Webstaurant, and it cooks very well, turns out nice and tender, and we go through a lot of it. Don't hesitate!

    I’m a big fan of the Carnival brand of popcorn kernels. I’ve tried every size they make, and the flavors are all fantastic! I use mine in an air popper and I also make it by hand on the stove top. Either way, you get great results every time. It’s just like the movie theater!

    We usually buy smaller bags from the local grocery store and pay a fortune. This was an investment, but lasts quite some time,. Our only problem was finding a container to keep it fresh.

    Great large popcorn at an amazing price! Shopped around for other popcorn kernals and can't get this much in bulk anywhere at this price. Highly recommended.

    from Legends Ballpark Posted on

    When your husband wants an air popper to make popcorn you buy this product. (Along with the popcorn salt). Brings a lot of nostalgia back to pop your own popcorn and not cook it in a microwave.

    Decided on trying the 5lb bag before i committed to the 50lb bag, and this popcorn is great, i use a silicone popcorn bowl in microwave and there are minimal kernels leftover. I really enjoy the taste and was not stale like other reviewers have stated, definitely recommend i will be ordering the 50lb cause my 5lb is almost gone

    Excellent popcorn. We generally use other big name brands at 3x the cost, but I see no real difference with this and their product. The do pop just as large as the expensive name brand. I might say this one is a bit chewier, but could have been the way we cooked it.

    Such a quality product. Far exceeded our expectations. If you have a large popcorn machine this is a perfect solution. Packaged well and was delivered quickly!

    from Scarbrough Industries Posted on

    pops well, not a lot of unpopped kernels. The bag inside the box was busted open but that caused no issue with the results. I use this with the oil from here and makes great popcorn. Even sitting under the warmer for a hour or so and was still just as good as when made

    These kernels work very well. I'd recommend a air tight container that fits 5lbs of corn kernels because it comes in a bag. Very happy with my purchase.

    Posted on

    not all the kernels popped up in the air popper, but what did was crisp and beautiful with a nice light flavor. This popcorn was almost white in color and delicate when popped up. It came fresh and sealed in a bag, ready to use. The kernels are quite small but sometimes that is a nice change. Try it yourself!

    This is a wonderful popcorn. It pops up nicely with a good flavor and less unpopped kernels. I use either the Golden Barrel coconut oil or canola oil. I use just enough of the oil to cover the bottom of the pan I use. I put it on medium high, add 3 kernels, cover, and just move the pan around enough to a few times to keep the kernels from staying in one place. When they have popped, remove the lid, pour enough kernels to completely cover the bottom of the pan with a little extra than a single layer, replace the lid and take off the burner for 30 seconds to heat all the kernels to the same temperature. Put back on the burner and shake the pan carefully several times during popping (use pot holders) and take off of the stove when the popping has slowed to 2-3 pops a second. Remove from the heat, carefully remove the lid if the corn is finished popping and serve plain, with melted butter or however you like it.

    Great popcorn with a smaller size kernel very light a fluffy when popped. Very tasty there is not a overwhelming amount of unpopped kernels, good price

    This is the first time I have ever tried "butterfly" popcorn kernels compared to grocery store kernels. What a difference in the size of the popped kernel! I will never buy brand "X' again! Now home movie night is better. Thank you Webstaurantstore and Carnival King.

    GREAT PRODUCT! GREAT VALUE! Can't find big bags like this every where that aren't a cheap brand. Really makes big popped cord which means it takes less to fill your bag up.

    from Cooley Shell, LLC Posted on

    There are many health benefits to using popcorn as a snack, but you really have to pay attention to flavorings and additives added to pre-packaged microwaveable popcorn. This is the reason we went with Webstaurant's popcorn kernels where we have full control over what gets added as a flavoring. The kernels themselves are spectacular. We haven't had popcorn this good before. The kernels are very large, snow white and light. Very tasty! The kids absolutely loved them. We make this popcorn in a stove kettle and this it's very easy and quick.
