I guess there may be a special brand of mushroom popcorn that has the shattering hull, but I haven't looked.

I set a plastic colander ,with big enough slots in it, under the air popper. After it is done popping I shake the colander over the sink and the hulls fall out. Then place the popcorn in a bowl add butter and salt.... yummy

We purchased "mushroom popcorn" from Smart and Final. Only option was 25 pounds - so we shared. It really makes a difference when popping - lots more surface for caramel or any addition. Good stuff!

we've been buying it for years at local (Amish) bulk food stores. I wouldn't go back to regular popcorn now

LOL...I have an acquaintance that did just that! She ate nothing but popcorn for about 6 months. She loves popcorn, wanted to lose weight, and figured she'd rather give up food and just eat popcorn. She did lose about 30 pounds, and has kept the weight off. She did integrate food back into her diet, but still eats a ton of popcorn!

sighhh....all this talk about popcorn....I love popcorn....and I want to make some....but I read the comment about not giving popcorn to dogs.....and my dog loves popcorn.....looked up the vet comments...some say no...and some say a little bit is ok....as long as it does not have butter and salt on it. Now what good is that???? I think I will have to make some popcorn with butter on it....and hide from my dog to eat it....owwwwww....that is really bad isn't it?

Had a family dachshund, that would go crazy every time he heard corn popping. He enjoyed eating it for 14 years and making it without adding butter never, ever happened. Popcorn is pretty much just a vehicle for melted butter, right?
