Popcorn is one of the most popular snacks on the planet. Its iconic existence is not just found at the movie theater; people have popcorn at a wide range of occasions and doctors are telling you to choose the fat free version of the snack for its amazing health benefits.
We can say there is not much that is controversial about popcorn except for the distinction between kettle corn and popcorn.
For some, when referencing kettle corn it gets lumped right in with the traditional bags of kernels we’ve grown to love and snack on. However, the two are certainly not the same.
Kettle corn is a specific type of popcorn. Traditionally made kettle corn is cooked in a large iron kettle that has been oiled. Once popped, the popcorn is tossed with salt and sugar for a very unique flavor.
Popcorn on the other hand is made from a special variety of corn that has been grown to burst open and puff due to heat exposure. Traditional popcorn is a high fiber snack, but is typically sprinkled with salt and butter for a savory taste and texture.
You can purchase traditional popcorn just about anywhere. For kettle corn, this type of popcorn is most commonly found pre-made at fairs and carnivals or you can attend these events and have it made to order for you.
Regardless of which type of popcorn you choose, this snack has been a favorite for centuries and both flavors provide the perfect snack option.
