Mushroom popcorn kernels pop up until a beautifully large mushroom shape.

What is Mushroom Popcorn?

Mushroom popcorn kernels produce firm, round pieces of popcorn with a bit of chewiness. Mushroom popcorn is different from butterfly popcorn which is light and airy, and tends to pop into complicated shapes. Butterfly popcorn is often served in movie theaters, whereas mushroom popcorn is best suited for making kettle corn and other types of candied popcorn, since its round shape makes it ideal for coating in sugar and syrups.

Popping Instructions

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 1/3 cup of popcorn with 1 tablespoon 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 minutes or until the pops are 5 seconds apart.

Oil needs to reach 400 degrees or more to achieve mushroom shape. Oil not heated to the correct temperature will produce butterfly shaped corn.

“Nice and fresh. Pops up fluffy and delicious. The mushroom shape is perfect for making caramel popcorn - my specialty!”

“This mushroom popcorn is AWESOME! it is fresh and pops up so light and fluffy. I fire up the WOK and add some coconut oil and OMG. We added the cheese powder from nuts.com and it is good, just ordered the 5 pound bag because we have already consumed the 1 pound bag. everything from Nuts.com is excellent. NO MORE MICROWAVE POPCORN....”

“Oh my, I just got my mushroom popcorn an hour ago and my hubby and I have already busted open the 1 pound bag to make popcorn, we are on our second batch, and I now see I should have ordered the five pound bag. The popcorn is fresh, and fluffy and when paired with our cheese powder, it is awesome.. Just popped it in our wok with some coconut oil and seasoned it with a little pink salt and your cheddar powder, it was scrumptious.. Uh oh, gotta run, don't want to burn my next batch.”

“The mushroom popcorn was great. Will be getting more when needed. Also, the veggie that were thrown in were great! We will be ordering some soon.”

“I haven't had mushroom popcorn in such a long time. It is very hard to find. I received my order; popped it in my hot air popper; lightly sprayed it with hickory flavored oil, and sprinkled it with Himalayan Crystal salt..Very Very yummy and good for you. Low fat/sodium..Thank you so much. I will be reordering.”

“Love this popcorn. Got a big bag of the Mushroom kernels and it's great. So fluffy and our 2 year old loves it as well. Will be buying our popcorn here from now on! :)”

, Blackfoot, ID March 1, 2014

“This is the popcorn I have been looking for. I love that the popcorn is big and not those small butterfly pieces. I really enjoyed it and the price was good too. I will definitely be ordering from here again.”

, Coachella, California February 12, 2014

“Just tried out the "Mushroom" popcorn. It is exactly what I was looking for. Fat, large popped kernels like at a candy store. Not the "butterfly" kind that can break into smaller pieces. I plan to order a larger pack very soon as my initial order will not last too long. Thanks.”

, Portland, OR February 9, 2014

“The order came quickly in a delightful box. It was almost worth ordering just to get the box. I ordered the mushroom popcorn and it is fantastic. Big pieces of puffy popcorn and great taste. I will be ordering again!”

“Been buying these from Nuts.com for several years, more kernels pop than "name brand" popcorn. Very fresh --I make it in my microwave by using a covered microwave pan and just wetting the kernels first for a 1/2 minute or so, then draining off any remaining water, adding the lid to the one qt sized container and if the lid lets off steam as mine does - then I put a facecloth over it to trap the steam and return it partially to the container which also adds some weight to the plastic container top so it doesn't "blow off" during the popping process. Works like a charm! Then I add pre-melted butter and sprinkle whatever else I want on my popcorn !”
