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.

“loved the mushroom popcorn”

, san bernardino, ca January 2, 2012

“Bought two pounds but I may end up getting a 25 pound case on a future purchase.

I made kettle corn for the first time last night and this is the kind of popcorn you want to use. Use a heavy pot 1/3 cup of popcorn with enough corn oil to cover and 1/4 sugar. Turn up the heat just enough to melt the sugar while you stir it with a wooden spoon. When it's dissolved crank up the heat and cover. When it stops popping dump it out and stir it to prevent clumps. A little salt and you're done!

I'll be making it for Christmas for the kids, but I may have to "experiment" a bit more. Might try it with brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon...

This is a great inexpensive treat! Giving the recipe to a summer camp!

Third order from NutsOnline and delivery was again under 24 hours. Ordered at 7PM and was at my doorstep by 3PM the next day!”

“OMG! All those years wasted eating store bought popcorn, I knew there was something better out there. Now I found it. Vary few unpopped unlike store brands. Also what few don't pop are perfect old maids!! I we love it, you won't be disappointed with this brand, you won't go back to store bought after you try this popcorn!!!!

“Received my mushroom popcorn the day after I ordered it, tried it the same day. It popped wonderfully, big and fluffy. Delicious flavor and crunch, can't wait to make caramel corn. Thanks for a great product and super service.”

“This year for Christmas I wanted to give out caramel corn and I read it was best to use mushroom popcorn kernels. I ordered them Friday, they arrived today and of course I had to do a test batch to make sure they were what I was looking for. PERFECTION! The popped corn was so much easier to coat evenly. Thank you so much for the great product and fast shipping.”

“Just made kettle corn with the mushroom popcorn and it was amazing! The popcorn was a lot bigger than the regular store brands and came in the mail in just 3 days. We also got a sample of the Turkish Figs and they were delicious!”

, Derby, Kansas September 19, 2011

“Dear family of Nuts. The big guys arrived and they already hit the popper! I had to wear safety goggles and a chest protector becaues they pop so big! Getting together with family and they all will love the popcorn!”

, Woodstock, Georgia September 8, 2011

“WOW so glad they arrived and all came through in good shape. I have already made some cheddar cheese soup and it was delicious. I also use the cheese powder with a spicy popcorn that is a hit with many of my groups.

I will be working on my cookies and candy recipes with the rest. Thanks for the sample and information on the Quinoa so will give that a try. You guys are the best.”
