So What Is Kettlecorn Anyhow?
A lip-smackin’ combination of salty and sweet, kettlecorn is a variety of popcorn made with granulated sugar, salt and oil. Kettlecorn is popped in big iron kettles, thus its name. It is said that Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania introduced kettlecorn to the American colonies in the 1700s. After a hard day of farming, they would pop corn in lard in large cast iron kettles, and then add honey, molasses or sugar to sweeten their freshly popped treat. Though we now use pure corn oil instead of lard, we think the Dutch settlers would be proud of our old-fashioned kettlecorn! Plus, we’ve “gone modern,” because in addition to our original kettlecorn, we now offer dozens of mouth-watering gourmet flavors including Caramel, cheeses, cinnamon and many more!!
