There are many ways to pop popcorn – and for the culinary experts at Popcornopolis, coconut oil wins, hands down. Popping kernels in high-grade coconut oil gives our popcorn a buttery taste, and the classic crunch our fans have enjoyed for decades.

Popcorn is a special type of corn, with each kernel holding water inside a hard-shelled “hull.” When the popcorn is heated, the pressure builds, the kernel explodes, and…pop! You’ve got a puffed-up, crunchy snack. We pop our corn in coconut oil to give it a buttery taste and a satisfying crunch.

Most American popcorn is grown in the “corn belt” – which includes Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas. We’re fortunate to work with expert, caring Midwestern farming families who harvest the highest quality of kernels for our gourmet recipes.

Our popcorn is popped fresh daily, and packaged as soon as it cools!
