There are many varieties of popping corn, which produce popcorn of different size, shape, and taste. Read about the different shapes commonly referred to as mushroom and butterfly popcorn and discover which popcorn kernels best suit your needs and taste!
There can be a lot of confusion about the different varieties and names associated with popcorn kernels. I’ll try and clear up that confusion and help you purchase the popcorn that you’re looking for!
Growing up in Paris, France, popcorn was not a treat found in every home. I think us Europeans were never very fond of snacks – the consensus is that it’s best to keep your appetite for full meals. Having popcorn at home was perceived as a very American habit, just like eating pancakes or frying bacon strips; we saw it in American movies, not in French homes (I only discovered bacon strips when I moved to Canada). There was only one place where you could be sure to find popcorn: at the movie theatre. Once at the food concession, there were always two choices: sucré or salé – sweet or salty. While my mother adored salted popcorn, I always chose the sweet kind. It was lightly glazed in sugar, it was crunchy, it was heaven.

A few years back Cinco de Mayo became “a thing” in Canada. Suddenly, there were ads everywhere urging us all to celebrate it, with Mexican beer and burritos of course! Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is NOT the celebration of Mexican independence. In fact, it’s a celebration of the Mexican army's victory over the French in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 (thanks Google for clearing that up).
My battle is far least epic, but just as fierce. The battle I'm waging is me vs. the urge to snack!
Suddenly, I realize this is where popcorn comes into play. I could ..
When people from other countries think of Canada there are a few things that seem to always come up – Hockey, Beer, Winter and Maple Syrup. So, when it came time for me to invent something to celebrate Canada's 150th, I couldn't help but embrace the last item on that list.
What goes with maple syrup? I ponder, then begin to rifle through the large inventory of varied items in my CornPopper.ca pantry. I pull out not one, but two kinds of bacon seasoning – SCORE! I decide to make a variation on kettle corn. A sweet and salty combo that would be uniquely Canadian and topped with clusters of ca..

I've been really busy lately and haven't seen many friends over the last while so I decide to invite a couple of them over last minute. To my surprise they are available – Yippee. Now to make some treats for us to nosh on. I have plenty of food to make some delicious savoury bits and pieces but I don't really have the ingredients or the time to bake up something sweet.
I rifle through my cabinets. Of course, I have popcorn. I always have popcorn, in my house it's a munching staple. I spot a new container of chocolate Glaze Pop that I haven't yet had the chance ..
I have ALWAYS had a love for caramel. It's one of my kryptonite foods. Anything with caramel makes my heart skip a beat with joy. A few years back when salted caramel became the latest craze I was a quick convert to the lovely combination of sweet and salty. Over the last year or so I've all but given up caramel laden treats in an effort to be more health conscious. But a girl can't live by salad alone and with the temptation of Christmas sweets all around it's been hard not to indulge.
Instead of completely derailing my efforts I decide to make something that ..
