Fresh and natural unpopped popcorn kernels from the Midwest. Now you can enjoy delicious movie popcorn in your home theatres!
Stove top directions: Preheat 3 tablespoons of oil in a deep pan on medium heat. The best oils to use have a high smoke-point (peanut oil, safflower oil, soy oil, sunflower oil, light olive oil, or coconut oil). When the oil is hot add 1/3c popcorn kernels. Put a lid on the pot and continue to move the pan, or stir the kernels, so that they do not burn. Cook for 2 1/2 min to 4 min or until the pops are 5 seconds apart.
Microwave directions: Mix 1/3c of popcorn with 1 Tbs of oil. Add the kernel and oil mixture to a brown paper bag. Fold over the top of the bag two times and give it a good shake. Cook for 2 1/2 min or until the pops are 5 seconds apart.
Popcorn Kernel Storage
Store the popcorn kernels in sealed plastic or glass containers in a cool, dark, dry location for up to 1 year.
The Movie Munchies
Did you ever wonder why we love reaching for handfuls of fluffy, buttery popcorn at the cinema? Before it became a movie theater concession, popcorn was typically sold at circuses and carnivals, or by street vendors pushing around popcorn carts. In the late nineteenth century, these street vendors stationed themselves around movie theaters, which attracted large crowds of people that would buy the popcorn to enjoy during their show. Theater owners soon realized the opportunity and began stocking their concession stands with the snack.
At five cents a bag, popcorn's popularity continued to grow, even through the Great Depression of the 1930's. Popcorn was beloved as a tasty snack that was fun and filling. During the sugar shortage of World War II, Americans ate less candy and turned to popcorn to fulfill their snacking needs. The popularity of home televisions and introduction of microwaves in the decades to follow only bolstered popcorn's status as America's favorite movie-time treat.

“This was exactly what I was looking for! They pop up big and full and taste just as good or better than Orville Redenbacher's. And 25 lbs lasts a long time! (Even though I eat a hot air popper's worth pretty frequently, avg x3/wk.) It's a great snack for me as corn isn't a detriment with my disease as I fight a chronic illness and I can flavor it to taste within my dietary needs. Ordering another case. :)”
