Q. Does "White" Popcorn mean White Cheddar?/Do you have Cheese Popcorn?

A. We use the term "White" to differentiate between our Lightly-Buttered and Lightly-Salted Popcorn and our Caramel-Glazed Caramel Corn./We have Cheese Popcorn only on certain holidays (check the homepage to see if available).

Q. Do you have kettle corn?

A. We have never had kettle corn with the clear sugar glaze. If you are looking for sweet, look at our Caramel-Glazed Caramel Corn.

Q. How do you protect/store the Caramel Corn?

A. Since our Caramel Corn does not have any preservatives in it, so the humidity and weather can affect it, leave the Caramel Corn in the bag it's packaged in, even if it's half a bag, and put it in a Ziploc bag and put it in the freezer. It will not freeze solid (don't microwave it!) and it will stay crisp for as long as you could ever need it (years!) and can also snap it back if the humidity/weather affects it.
