Did you know? Check out some tasty trivia about everyone’s favorite snack: popcorn!

*Popcorn is different from other varieties of corn because it has a thicker hull. It’s the kernel’s hull that permits pressure from the heated up moisture inside of it to eventually burst open. The interior starch becomes somewhat gelatin-like as it is heated. When the kernel bursts open, the starch inside spills outwards and cools off, providing popcorn with its famous shape. When compared to many other snack items, popcorn is rather low in calories. Air-popped corn only contains around 30 calories in one cup. Oil-popped corn is only about 35 calories per cup.

*The majority of Popcorn Wheaton is grown right here in the Midwest, mostly in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, Kentucky and Nebraska.

*There’s really no such item as popcorn without a hull. All popcorn requires a hull so it can actually pop. Some types of popcorn are made so the hull bursts upon popping, which may make it look as if it doesn’t have a hull.
