Gourmet Kettle Korn

Popping Up More Than Original!

The 2021 Season Is Popping! 

Our Season is from April through November (Or Until the Snow Flies!)

Gourmet Kettle Korn is a family-owned mobile kettle corn business. You can find us popping gourmet kettle corn all around Southern Wisconsin at farmer’s markets, festivals and other community events.

Gourmet Kettle Korn is registered by the State of Wisconsin and licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture. We meet all health regulations for mobile food service and carry ample liability insurance.

All of our kettle corn is popped fresh, one batch at a time, on location in a large 160-quart kettle for that perfect sweet n’ salty kettle corn taste!  We use 100% pure corn oil for popping our popcorn. Corn oil is a polyunsaturated fat and contains no cholesterol. Other oils, like coconut oil, contain large amounts of saturated fat and are usually cheaper to use.

We always offer free samples.

Sweet. Salty. Savory.

Some cool Popping Sorghum facts:

  • Popping sorghum seeds are small. VERY small. But don’t let size fool you. They have HUGE flavor!
  • It is a super healthy whole grain food (containing calcium, magnesium, potassium & iron), low in calories and fat, and gluten free! This makes it great for Celiac sufferers.
  • Because it is essentially hulless, Popped Sorghum grain may also be tolerated and enjoyed by some sufferers of Crohn’s disease and diverticulitis (please consult with your doctor).
  • It does have a lower yield than popcorn (meaning that up to 30%-40% of the grains may not pop) however, that’s part of its charm. Many of the unpopped grains are toasted in the process, making them crunchy, nutty and delicious! What doesn’t pop or toast during popping can be carefully toasted in the popper or even in your toaster oven. We sift out the unpopped grains (like you would old maids from popcorn) and make sure they are toasted. Then we just pop them into our mouth along with the popped grains and it is fantastic! (As always, remember to chew carefully.)
