What Makes Mushroom Popcorn Different from Butterfly Popcorn?

First, you might be wondering what makes mushroom popcorn different from butterfly popcorn. The name simply refers to the shape of the kernels after they pop. When popcorn kernels are exposed to heat, they eventually explode open, leading to the typical shape with which you are familiar. Butterfly popcorn kernels usually pop in unpredictable shapes. They usually have a lot of wings protruding in a variety of directions. In contrast, mushroom popcorn kernels tend to form large, round, consistent shapes.

Importantly, one type of popcorn is not necessarily better than the other. This is usually a personal preference. On the other hand, there are several advantages that mushroom popcorn will provide.

Mushroom Popcorn Is Better for Toppings

If you are someone who likes to put a bunch of toppings on your popcorn, then mushroom popcorn is probably going to be the better choice. Mushroom popcorn is great for those who like to add toppings including chocolate, caramel, and melted cheese. Because mushroom kernels are round, they provide a much larger surface area that makes it easier for people to add their coatings. The nice, consistent shape makes it easier for the toppings to stick to the popcorn. In contrast, if people were to add toppings to butterfly popcorn, the topping might not distribute consistently. Furthermore, it might not stick to the kernels. That is why candy and cheese popcorn is usually made out of mushroom popcorn.

Mushroom Popcorn Is Much Harder to Crush

There are other reasons why people love mushroom popcorn as well. For example, it is very difficult to crush mushroom popcorn. Have you ever opened a bag of popcorn, only to realize that all the pieces at the bottom were crushed? This can be incredibly frustrating. Fortunately, this is not a problem when it comes to mushroom popcorn.

Another reason why people love to add candy to mushroom popcorn is that it can stand up to routine wear and tear. Instead of the shape collapsing in on itself, leading to a disappointing snack, mushroom popcorn is up to the challenge. It retains its shape even when it is covered with a relatively heavy coating, making it a versatile snack option. In addition, once mushroom popcorn is coded, it usually remains fresh. Therefore, it also has a longer shelf life than butterfly popcorn. Even though butterfly popcorn is certainly a delicious snack, these are just a few reasons why many people love mushroom popcorn. We are confident that if you give our mushroom popcorn a try, you will fall in love as well.
