Is KettlePOP really the ORIGINAL Kettle Corn?

You may have noticed on many web pages that "a Missouri farmer" or a "Midwestern farmer" popped sugar corn in a large cast iron kettle over a wood fire and began selling it at various shows. That farmer is Bill Mann, father to Gary Mann who is President of The Original Kettle Korn™. In 2008, Gary Mann retired from the kettle corn business and passed on the reigns of superior quality kettle corn equipment to the next generation of kettle corn experts, KettlePOP.

Old time “sugar corn” has been around for hundreds of years. The old time sugar corn that our ancestors ate was just that "Old Time Sugar Corn," not kettle corn! Pioneers would cook corn, oil, sugar, and salt together in a cast iron kettle… leading to the name kettle corn.


What’s the KettlePOP three-stage quality assurance technique?

First, it scours the globe for the best ingredients and works closely with farmers to ensure that only the highest quality corn goes into each bag. Next, it hand pops each and every kernel to perfection in a patented fire-burning kettle. And finally, it tops the popcorn with preservative-free flavorings.


Do the KettlePOP products contain allergens?
