Popcorn being my favored snack, I’ve taken the time to investigate home appropriate options beyond the microwave.

To date, the best I’ve found is John Cope’s Gourmet White Popping Corn. Not surprisingly, Cope’s is a brand full of heritage – founded in 1900, rich in Pennsylvania Dutch history, and allegedly popular with President Eisenhower. Those things are not particularly important here, instead the quality of the texture and the flavor of the popping corn are key. Additionally, the corn is free of additives and or artificial chemicals.

I season mine with cayenne and cracked pepper. You can do whatever you want with yours… assuming you buy some from Farm Stand Foods.
