Our Classic Corn is dressed for the red carpet and ready to premier at your next movie night
The perfect movie night isn’t complete without a heaping bowl of hot, delicious popcorn. And the perfect bowl of popcorn starts with fresh, farm-to-table popping corn. If you want the absolute best-tasting popcorn kernels (that will fill your home with movie lobby smells), you need a jar of Classic Popping Corn in your pantry at all times. Whether you’re a popcorn purist who enjoys an unsalted air-popped bowl or a master flavor innovator loading up with butter, salt, nutritional yeast, or furikake, the real flavor begins with the best American-grown popping corn.
Our Classic Popping Corn is grown on small family-owned farms in Iowa and Missouri. While walking the land alongside our farmers, we happened upon this very special artisanal popcorn variety. That’s right — Classic isn’t just a name, it’s an actual strain of popcorn, hand-selected for its nostalgic taste. Even when we serve it to people without salt or butter, they comment on the craveable, clean flavor that makes corn the star of the show.
These farm-fresh kernels are not only delicious and GMO-free but are also guaranteed to pop up big, fluffy, and crunchy every time. And because our popping corn is grown and packaged in the Midwest, we can always deliver the freshest kernels to your door.

Frequently Asked Questions
Each of our popcorn machines makes about 12 total poppings per hour. Every ounce of popcorn is equal to one serving (a small bag of corn). Our popcorn machines are listed by how many ounces they can pop at one time, so the larger the kettle size (ex. 12 oz kettles) the more you can pop. We recommend 6 oz. and under for home use, 8-12 oz. for offices or serious popcorn enthusiasts, and 12 oz. or larger for theaters or rentals. Remember, you'll be able to put 2-3 poppings of corn in the cabinet to stay warm when you're being rushed for popcorn!
What Makes the Hard Coat Anodized Kettles a Better Investment?A hard anodized kettle is easy to clean, easy to use, and most importantly, very hard to scorch or burn from over heating. A good quality kettle will last for years. The aluminum kettles on our higher-grade machines provide the best transfer of energy for an even, quick cook of your kernels. Just like your best non-stick pan at home, the anodized coating makes the machine’s kettle easy to wipe out and clean, so your popcorn always tastes fresh.
What Causes Kernels of Popping Corn to Pop Anyway?Inside each kernel of corn is a small amount of moisture. When that moisture is heated it up and turns to steam the pressure of the steam expanding causes each kernel to expand and explode. A popcorn kernel turns inside out and reveals its soft tender inside.
How Long Does it Take to Pop Popcorn in A Popcorn Machine?Your popcorn machine will take about 5-7 minutes to heat up the kettle to be ready to pop. Simply add the contents of a portion pack and you'll have popcorn in about 4-5 minutes.
What Oil is Best for Cooking Popcorn?We prefer our butter flavored coconut oil which you can check out here: You can also use canola oil, peanut oil, and other high heat oils. Olive oil and butter will burn and ruin your kettle.
Can You Clean a Popcorn Machine?Most kettles can just be wiped out with a paper towel or rag. Never submerge or use harsh chemicals in a kettle cleaning. The tempered glass, steel, etc are easy to wipe down and we recommend a simple vinegar and water solution to keep things fresh and not transfer chemical tastes to your popcorn. DO NOT put your Whirley Pop in the dishwasher. Please hand clean with a mild detergent to keep the finish on the base.
The Coconut Oil is solid, is something wrong with it?Coconut oil usually stays solid during most room and cooler temperatures. In the summer you'll probably see it turn to liquid. When you add that coconut oil to heat it will melt like butter.
How Long Will Portion Packs Last Before Going Stale?A portion pack, if unopened will last about a full year. We put a maximum freshness date on each case of corn but if you keep your popcorn in a sealed, cool, dry place, it will last long after the date. Do not store your portion packs or corn in the fridge! It will dry out the corn and make it unable to pop!
Are Franklin's Portion Packs and Butter Salt kosher?Yes. You can see our Kosher and Organic Certifications for our popcorn, portion packs, and other products HERE.
