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.

“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!”

“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!”

“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.”

I just made my cheddar cheese popcorn with the mushroom popcorn and the cheese powder.... just as good as the ones I got at the popcorn stores! Again... thanks so much!! ”

“I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email notifying me that my purchase had been delivered to my home.

The package was prepared so that nothing was damaged. I can hardly wait till pop up some of this mushroom popcorn tonight.

I highly recommend Nuts Online - what a quality way to start a long relation.”

“I couldn't resist giving a testimonial of how wonderful the mushroom popcorn kernels were! The end result.....superb! I will certainly be ordering from NutsOnline again. Thanks for bringing back the fun in ordering products online. ”

“Been buying these from 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 !”
