2. Choose High-Quality Popping Oil

The choice of oil can greatly enhance the flavor and texture of your popcorn. Opt for our Pop-N-Lite popping oil, designed specifically for popcorn popping. This oil mimics the rich taste of butter without seeming artificial,  while ensuring even heat distribution for consistently popped kernels.

To achieve popcorn perfection, start with high-quality popcorn kernels. Our Alicampo Popcorn Kernels are carefully selected for their superior popping ability and delicious taste. These kernels guarantee fluffy and flavourful popcorn that will leave your customers craving more.

4. Shake and rotate

Prevent burning and promote uniform popping by periodically shaking and rotating the kettle or stirring the popcorn. This technique helps distribute heat evenly, ensuring that each kernel pops to perfection.

5. Season to perfection

Once your popcorn is popped, seize the moment by seasoning it while it's still warm. Consider using one of our many popular Glaze Pop Seasoning flavours like Caramel, Red Hot Cinnamon, Sweet, Salty or Chocolate, to add a delightful twist. The warm popcorn will allow the flavors to adhere, creating a delectable treat that will keep your customers coming back for more.
