Butterfly Popcorn Is Also Called Snowflake Popcorn

When people think about butterfly popcorn, they usually envision traditional movie theater popcorn. That is exactly what butterfly popcorn is. Also known as snowflake popcorn, the names for this type of popcorn come from its unique, distinctive shape. In addition, butterfly popcorn is usually the type of popcorn that is used in microwave popcorn. With just a bit of melted butter and some salt, it is possible to create a delicious, consistent snack.

Where did the butterfly name come from? The name comes from the distinctive wings the popcorn gets when it pops open. Even though butterfly popcorn does not look anything like its original kernel, simple exposure to heat causes the kernel to explode open, almost as though the popcorn is flying through the air using its wings after it explodes. This gives rise to the traditional shape that people love about butterfly popcorn.

Butterfly Popcorn Has a Delicate Shape

Even though butterfly popcorn is delicious, most people know what happens when this popcorn is exposed to the air for too long. For that reason, butterfly popcorn is best consumed fresh. If you would like the delicious taste and satisfying crunch that butterfly popcorn provides, you need to consume it immediately. Because of the thin nature of its shape, it tends to go stale relatively quickly. That is why many people do not like eating butterfly popcorn after it has been opened and left exposed to the air.

What Do You Put on Butterfly Popcorn?

There are plenty of toppings you can add to butterfly popcorn. In general, this type of popcorn is best eaten plain or with a bit of butter and salt. There are plenty of other spices you can add to your butterfly popcorn as well. For example, some people like to add garlic salt. Other people may like to add a bit of cayenne pepper if they are looking for a snack that has some kick to it. You might even want to add some powdered cheese to your butterfly popcorn as well. For example, a lot of people like to add white cheddar powder to butterfly or snowflake popcorn.

When you are deciding what type of toppings you would like to add to your butterfly popcorn, it is important to be careful. Remember that the wings of butterfly popcorn are relatively fragile. If you try to put a heavy topping on your butterfly popcorn, it will simply end up getting crushed, ruining the shape of the snack. Therefore, it is best to stick to something light such as melted butter, salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper.
