Is Popcorn Corn?.

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.
