DAY 8 Tips for types of popcorn
Time for a TIPsy Thursday! Did you know there are two basic types of popcorn? The butterfly and the mushroom. The butterfly is pretty common. .It’s best eaten fresh and is your “movie type” popcorn. However the mushroom kernel is rounder & holds toppings better. It’s less fragile & a better option for any type of coating you’re wanting to do. If you’re looking forward to making caramel popcorn balls this season the mushroom popcorn is the type you’ll want!
