Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most popular popcorn flavors for weddings?

The top four popcorn flavors for weddings are: Caramel Corn, Kettle Corn, Cheese Corn and Movie Popcorn. Many people have six flavors on their wedding popcorn bar, and the most popular additional flavors include: Ranch, Pizza, Sour Cream & Chives.

How much popcorn will I need for my wedding or other event?

We know from years of experience that having 2 1/4 cups of popcorn per person works best. Some people will eat more, others less, and some none at all.

Since there are 16 cups in a gallon, we can easily calculate how many gallons you will need in total. For example, if you have 100 wedding quests, that would be 225 cups of popcorn, which is 14 gallons.


What Is The Shelf Life of Popcorn?

Popcorn will not go bad, but over time it will lose its crunch and become stale. The most important factor to shelf life is how it is stored. It it is kept sealed well in a bag, which provides a good barrier to air, it will last several weeks to several months. Also, keeping popcorn out of the humidity will keep it fresh longer.

Caramel Corn and any of the other candy flavors will stay fresh for up to six months. Kettle Corn about four months. The savory flavors and cheese corn about two months.
