Default Mushroom Popcorn

Has anyone have it in their area? It is impossible to find it in the grocery stores here so I have to order it. I think the word mushroom throws people off thinking of taste instead of expanding like a mushroom. It's perfect for caramel and coated popcorns and pop corn balls. It is king size kernels you find in gourmet tins and bags of popped corn. One six lb bag lasts us for a year. We eat a lot of butter popcorn.

First I’ve heard of it but it sounds great!

Looks interesting ... have never heard of this before.
I know I have seen large kernel popcorn here, before, but no clue whether that is one and the same as mushroom!

Out of curiosity, I checked Amazon, and sure enough, several listings.
If it's listed here in Canada, I am sure it is on Amazon USA.
Plus I bet there are other places to order it online.

I’ve tried many popcorns and my current favorite is in the bulk organic section of the health store. I’ll keep my eye out for the mushroom popcorn so I can try it.

It pops into the big fluffy popcorn. Like a mushroom.

Is that the name on the bag? I remember years ago, Orville Redenbacher had a special corn in his bags, it supposedly popped different. I'll keep an eye out for it. Specialty foods seem to have taken a nose dive during this time. I am finding it hard to find my favorite cauliflower made products. Thanks for the heads up.

"Mushroom Popcorn," hummm...the name is appealing. I have not seen it in our stores around here. We love popcorn in our household. I do wonder if this will lead to mushroom flavored popcorn. Very intriguing!

It's a type of popcorn that has been sold ever since tins of popcorn has. Some will say extra large or Mushroom. It's not in microwave packages, I guess because the package would have to be triple in size. I use a Stir Crazy, one of the first ones. It is old. My grandmother had it. I can pop up to 2 gallons of popped corn in one batch with no burning and very few unpopped kernels.

Oh, this sounds interesting! Can you use an air popper to pop it?

I used an air popper once and it worked fine but air popping made the popcorn taste dried out and stale to us. It was a one time used machine. LOL
