Great tasting popcorn. I prefer this type to the regular kind. Mushroom popcorn must popped at the correct temperature...highly recommend to read the instructions that come with the package. 400 degrees F and low burner stove heat works for me. Also use a Whirley Popper. Try 1/2 cup Kernels, 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil, 1 tsp of popcorn salt (Flav-o Flavacol Theater Popcorn Salt) Works for me.

I've tried mushroom popcorn from half a dozen different places but my search stops here. Besides the great performance of the kernels (way more mushrooms than any of the other brands), the people at Just Poppin are incredibly helpful and nice. They have a new permanent repeat customer.

I bought this because I learned it is a "must have"ingredient if we wanted to make kettle corn. We use a stir crazy popper, coconut oil, sugar and the mushroom kernels. It makes spectacular kettle corn!! All of the kernels pop, and they are huge. YUM!! My only regret is that I only bought a 2 lb bag. Delivery was quick. Very pleased. Would highly recommend.

At first I wondered if paying this much for popcorn would be worth it. Now, after my first perfect batch of kettle corn, made in my Whirley Pop, I know it was worth every penny. The mushroom popcorn popped perfectly with very few unpopped kernels and hulls. I made kettle corn using vanilla sugar I make for my morning coffee. Divine!

We were excited to try mushroom popcorn after being continuously disappointed with results from popping "regular" popcorn for caramelizing. The Just Poppin' popcorn was such an improvement! There was practically no waste and the kernels were delicate and fluffy. The resulting caramel popcorn amazed our guests and proved addicting. A double batch lasted about a half hour!

My boyfriend is obsessed with kettle corn and it was getting expensive buying it so we researched how to make it on our own. Everyone kept saying this popcorn was the best to use and boy were they right! It is so big and fluffy and we are on our 3rd bag and have never had a kernel not pop! Besides the popcorn being delicious the people that work here are awesome as well. Why not buy a good product from good people?

WOW! Popcorn Gumballs! This is what my six year old granddaughter exclaimed when she first ate these! I bought these for baked caramel corn for my granddaughter's school bake sale. I would say 98% popped huge mushrooms and the caramel corn was a huge hit. The family ate a bowlful of it right out of the hot air popper plain and loved it. Some hulls but great fiber! No complaints! Will keep ordering!

I love this popcorn and I'm now a snob and won't buy anything else. BUT...I have yet to make this where more than 1/4 of the batch is mushrooms. However, my husband has no problem at all and makes 99% mushrooms ever time. AGH. I swear I do it *exactly* like he does and under his direction and I'm just a completely inadequate popcorn-maker. So just be aware that if you aren't thrilled it's probably because it didn't for you. You have to have "the gift".

I add salt to the pan, cover bottom with canola oil, and bring it to just smoking. When I add the corn, I put two sheets of paper toweling under the lid to absorb oil that would otherwise tend to dribble down the outside of the pan. The corn popped up beautifully, and almost 100% of the kernels popped. This is the best corn that I have found. Thank you so much.

I made the mistake of ordering this to POP on my stove-top whirley popper. I've always thought stove-top is the best, healthiest for our family. BUT, I have small children & this kernel must be BEST for kettle-corn at carnivals and/or fairs. OR, for people who know what they are doing at home & possibly glaze it w/ sweetness. I'm NOT 100% sure b/c I was completely disappointed and I wound-up throwing 95% of it away :( ON THE UP-SIDE: I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HULLESS POPCORN FOR SMALL CHILDREN! NO PAIN IN CASE HUGE HULL GETS STUCK THEIR TEETH OR GUMS & LESS of a CHOKING HAZARD :)

I found this popcorn to be ok but not as good as what I get when buying kettle korn at country fairs here in Oregon. The corn was big enough, but tough and full of hulls. Also, it was so heavy, it browned a bit in my air popper which contributed to the toughness. The best popcorn I've bought so far is from Bob's Red Mill here in Oregon. I prefer the white variety. It's large, tender and flavorful.

About 5% of the popcorn pieces will be perfectly formed as they are in the picture. There will still be plenty of odd shaped kernels. Yes, it's still preferable to use this over the grocery store variety when making candy coated popcorn. But if you're just looking for good buttered popcorn, I wouldn't bother.

We tried the mushroom popcorn, and find that the percentage of mushrooms vs. butterflies is great! I do think I might order the Kernel Katcher to resolve the issue of all the hulls. I don't seem to have anything in my kitchen of many items with holes large enough to let them through, so this should be great, especially after reading the reviews on the bowl. We also purchased the Tender Pop Hulless popcorn, but have yet to try it out. I love the personal touch of handwriting, "Enjoy!" on the invoice, as well as the wording on the instruction sheet. Yes, it is sad when those poor little kernels get crushed! Thanks for great service, and a great product! Marion

I had seen a show on the Food Network, several years ago, that described mushroom popcorn as the best. When I was pregnant, I went through a hugh popcorn phase and then started looking for mushroom popcorn in various local stores, to no avail. Finally, this year as I was searching online, I came across this website and ordered the small bag of the mushroom popcorn. The first couple of times I tried to make it, it was just okay, but I knew that my "popper" was not the right size. So I recently purchased a hand stir popper and that made a huge difference, this is the BEST popcorn ever!!! Thanks for all the tips and the great product!!!

This popcorn is delicious, way better than that stuff you buy in a box, however, I was surprised to see that not all the kernels popped in a mushroom shape as I expected.

[Just Poppin's Tips: Mushroom Popcorn requires higher temps than other popcorn varieties to achieve the mushroom shape. The percentage of mushroom kernels depends on the popping method used.

Microwave = few mushroom kernels (not great for Mushroom Popcorn)
Stovetop = more mushroom kernels (make sure your oil is hot first. >Video)
Hot Air Popper = most mushroom kernels (pre-heat your air popper)

Please follow our instructions for each method as outlined in the Popping Tip Sheet included in every package.]

I ordered 2lbs of mushroom popcorn to try it out. I tried it tonight and wow, they are really big! They claim 70% round and it was at least that. I used peanut oil and Whirley-Pop. I'll be getting 5lb bags now.

I bought this type of kernel for my annual big batch of caramel corn for Christmas. It turned out beautifully.

The best oil has a high smoke point, and that oil is rice husk oil (see Amazon). Preheat a heavy, tall pan until you can feel the bottom very warm, then add oil and 2-3 kernels. When they pop, wait 15-30 seconds additional time and slowly add the rest of the popcorn. Cover with a ventilated cover to let the steam escape. Remove from high heat when the popping slows down noticeably. Rice husk oil is very neutral in flavor, so you may prefer to add butter.

I have only made one batch of the corn and used it to try out the "kettle corn" flavor packet. I would not recommend that stuff all it did was burn! Ruined the whole batch and I tried to follow the recipe to the letter. A pan hot enough to pop corn will burn that caramel stuff. Now, I will use the mushroom corn to make Caramel Corn. Should work fine, I hope I get more mushroom shaped kernals than I did the first time. Only about 50% popped true. The corn is fine..the flavoring..no so much.

[Just Poppin's Tips: The "kettle korn flavor packet" was a Redi Glaze Caramel Coating sample packet. Please note that any of our Redi Glaze flavors should only be used if you have a Whirley Style Stove Top Popper or Stir Crazy Popper. Using in a popper without a stirring device WILL result in burned sugar and popcorn.]

The popcorn popped beautifully with big "chunky" kernels. Very tender. But whoa, lots of hulls!

Nice texture and taste. Holds the cheese and flavorings well and pops up just great! (We pop our popcorn in Olive Oil over a gas range - great flavor - then season it with all sorts of cheeses and spices)...

A Note About Mushroom Popcorn

"Mushroom" popcorn refers to popcorn that has much more of the ball-shapes than typical "butterfly" popcorn. Regular (butterfly) popcorn on average will have maybe 5% ball shapes.

According to many growers, 35-45% ball shapes would be considered "mushroom popcorn". However, we hold our farmers to a higher standard - our popcorn averages more than 65% ball shapes (usually much more).

When you purchase commercially produced caramel corn and see perhaps 80-90% ball shapes, such as Cracker Jacks, not only are they using mushroom popcorn, but they remove most of the non-ball shapes through extensive processing.

The method of popping also plays a large part in the percentage of "mushrooms". Commercial poppers are able to maintain the exact temperature needed, so home users may need to experiment a few times with their stove-top poppers to get the desired results.

Don't forget to read our "Absolute Best Home Popping Method" for information or contact us if you have any questions.
