You have to try this delicious MUSHROOM POPCORN! The resulting popped kernels are large and round with very few pieces that stick out. These kernels pop HUGE! The expansion rate for this variety is 36-38:1. Perfect for homemade caramel corn and kettle corn. Once you use this popcorn for your caramel corn, kettle corn, or chocolate popcorn, you’ll never go back to the jarred and bagged popcorn from the grocery store. PLEASE NOTE: All Mushroom popcorn, by it’s very nature, tends to have many hulls. The hulls are diminished by the process of making into caramel or kettle corn etc. It is for this reason that we do not recommend Mushroom Popcorn as a “snacking” popcorn. Instead we recommend our other popcorn varieties – especially the Tender Pop Hulless if you are looking for a popcorn with few hulls. THIS POPCORN IS NATURALLY GROWN IN AMERICA’S HEARTLAND AND IS NOT GENETICALLY MODIFIED (NON-GMO).

Try as I may this popcorn could not live up the my expectations.
I have a hot air popper that makes large fluffy POP SECRET.
Followed there instructions on heating the popper for 5 mins.
Did not pop complete, and they were on the small side and hard not fluffy.
It’s back to POP SECRET.
While they do pop up big and fluffy, they are LOADED with hulls. I got so many wedged between my teeth that I couldn’t finish and had to go floss! Disappointed with an expensive popcorn.
We’ve always wondered why the Kettle Corn we got at fairs and festivals tasted so much better than what we tried to do at home. We finally learned that Mushroom popcorn makes for a much fluffier, fuller and superior bag of Kettle Corn! Determined to surprise my fiance for the holidays, I started a quest for Mushroom popcorn kernals and finally found JustPoppin. Eureka! I quickly ordered 2 lbs, along with the Stainless Steel Induction Stovetop Popcorn Popper
and we’ve been poppin’ up a storm ever since! It took some practice (watch their videos) — but we quickly mastered homemade Kettle Corn and now laugh every time we pass the grocery store brands. There’s simply no comparison. JustPoppin’s customer service and support is terrific, too. We’ve been ordering from them for over a year now and enjoy trying all their new varieties, flavorings and popping techniques!
As claimed in ads this corn is for added flavoring such as caramel. If purchased for popping and eating ‘as-is’ you’ll discover wonderfully huge corn puffs with NO TASTE. The ads are correct, buy to flavor or not I’m not intentionally criticizing this corn, the mistake I made was assuming it would taste as great as it looks, without caramel.
This stuff is great, I was able to make all sorts of flavored popcorn over the holidays (The mushroom shape works best for flavored popcorn).
I do recommend using coconut oil for the popping, it gives it that taste we all love.
I appreciated that the product came in a reseal-able bag.
I also shopped around on the internet for this product and was glad Amazon had a partner who sells it. I was much more comfortable that I was going to get a high quality and FRESH product. And I did.
Finally I am able to make the same, if not better, popcorn than the one I religiously buy at the Farmer’s Market every Saturday.
The kernels arrived in a resealable bag, which is very convenient. The popcorn is fluffy and delicious; not to mention the fact that I was very successful on popping the kernels using a hot air popper machine and a stove top popper.
I am VERY happy with my purchase!!
Pops big, tastes great, but the hulls are huge! (Expensive) I Feel like a dog with peanut butter on my tongue trying to get rid of the hulls that suction cupped to the back of my tongue. Wanted to try mushroom popcorn, because it looks so tasty, but will stick with standard popcorn from now on.
This product was extremely disappointing! No way did it look anything like the picture and it was full of hulls. The last time I was at a Farmers Market and purchased kettle corn, I asked them what kind of popcorn they used to get such big kernels. I was told mushroom popcorn, so I was so excited to find this product at Amazon. I followed the directions for popping and the kernels were no different from the corn I buy at the supermarket at a fraction of the cost!
A friend of mine gave me a small bag of this quality corn for my birthday and it is AMAZING! He knew I am a avid fan of popcorn and am always searching for something new. He did mention the hulls and said “So long as you chew it and NOT try to inhale it, it would be good” and good it was. I only stove top so it was great to see the corn pop up so big, just a handful and it filled up a 24qt bowl (Cause you can’t eat good popcorn in a small bowl). Lightly seasoned to taste with salted butter and seasoning salt, Perfect! So I only wrote cause of the knuckleheads that bad mouthed something that I thoroughly enjoyed. Buy a small sample and see for yourself and don’t let others keep you from the good stuff…
I am a popcorn lover and this popcorn was amazing. It pops up great, really tasty, and quite a conversation piece.

The kernels pop up HUGE. They are really “meaty” The only drawback is the prominent hulls. (notice the picture has the popcorn carefully turned to conceal this.).

Bought this popcorn because it looked good. It is sooooo good. When you put it in your mouth you feel like your mouth is full. It is a pleasure to chew and a little of this popcorn is better than a whole bowl of regular popcorn. My family is sold on mushroom popcorn.
I bought a 3lb bag and had it sent to my parents. They raved that it came out great so I bought a 5lb bag myself. I have tried it once so far. I popped 1/4 cup with 1 1/2 tbs of butter flavored canola oil in the 6 qt Lindy’s popper. I followed the instructions that states that you should only toss in a few kernels at the beginning while the oil heats up. When those three pop, dump in the rest since the oil will be at optimum temperature. I did so and started to crank away. All the kernels popped in about 10 seconds since it was a small batch. Came out fine, but a little chewier than expected because since the kernels were fuller than regular butterfly popcorn. It did get a little crispier when more steam was allowed to escape. Flavor was fine with a light bit of popcorn salt.
It really does make “mushroom” popcorn. It’s more expensive than regular popcorn but It’s well-worth a try, whether you are an aficionado or not. I tried it with the Barleans organic coconut oil and it was delicious! It comes with instruction too, which is nice.
I was so pleased with the texture, flavor, and large, mushroom size of the popped corn. Even better, the small amount of oil and popcorn salt I normally use adhered to this popcorn much better than to normal popcorn… gives me better flavor with lower calories and fat.
Some things are just harder to make at home. My mom, who was a marvelous cook, never could get home-made pickles right. If you want to make kettle corn (you know, like the stuff you buy at the county fair) you really, really need this as an ingredient. I’m still not 100% of the way to making awesome kettle corn at home (it’s merely very good) but I’d be nowhere without this mushroom popcorn.

The popcorn tastes great and is easy to cook in a hot air popper. The hulls are very hard and there are a lot of them. I actually have to pick off the hulls before I eat it, because they cut my gums.

Purchased this to make Poppy Cock – which it was wonderful for, but have found that husband and I love it for eating popcorn as well. Has more chew.
