Kettle Korn

At every festival or street fair, you will always find a vendor selling Kettle Korn and filling the air with its sweet aroma and the familiar popping sound. Kettle Korn is popped corn that has been popped in a huge open kettle over a gas flame.



The cook stirs the corn as it's popping and adds a little sugar to make a sweet treat.

Looks like a very sweet treat! Is it as popular as cotton candy to childen? Of the two, I think I'd prefer the corn!

Like Ciel, I am longing for a bag of my own right now! Alas I don't know anywhere in Vermont where I might find Kettle Corn.

We finally got Kettle Korn a couple of years ago — made a lot of people very happy. I can't have any, but I still love the smell!

I love kettle corn! The microwave kind just isn't the same.
