Products: Heirloom Popcorn – Popped or Unpopped
Location: Shellsburg, Iowa
This is the most flavorful popcorn we’ve tasted – and its hulls explode so they don’t get stuck in your teeth. As the story goes, the Kelty family either found their tiny popcorn: “growing wild, or traded Native Americans for it,” Gene Mealhow explains, and passed it down from generation to generation. During WWII, their yearly planting got forgotten, and a paltry handful of kernels found in a pantry jar rescued it from extinction.
