Buying Tips

Popcorn may be purchased as bags of raw kernels, in cans, in microwave-ready packages, stove-top pans, or in bulk. Ears of popcorn, the kernels of which pop right on the cob, are also available but are harder to find.

Varieties

Popcorn is available in two main varieties: yellow and white. It can be purchased buttered or unbuttered, or topped with cheese, caramel, or other flavorings. However, plain popcorn is the most healthful choice.
