Popcorn FAQs

Is yellow or white popcorn kernels better?

Yellow popcorn kernels puff up larger and fluffier than white kernels which gives you more surface area for your flavorings, and they hold up better when coating with chocolate and caramel.

Do movie theaters use white or yellow kernels?

Yellow kernels are used by most movie theaters because they puff up big, are less crumbly, and have a buttery yellow hue.

How do you store leftover popcorn?

Allow popcorn to cool completely and place in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for 3 to 5 days. Popcorn will become chewier the longer you store it.
