What is Kettlecorn?

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 heat leftover corn kernels with lard in large cast iron kettles, followed by adding 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,” too; In addition to our original kettlecorn, you can now buy dozens of mouth-watering gourmet popcorn flavors, including caramel, cheeses, cinnamon, chocolate, and many more!

A Range of Ordering Options

No matter how much of our gourmet kettlecorn you want to buy, we have the quantity to suit your needs. We provide our customers with everything from 1-pound individual bags to 6.5-gallon tubs.
