    to many. Additionally, nutritionists point out that it has less fat and sodium than most
    flavored popcorns, a desirable feature for people on low-calorie or low-sodium diets.
Where did Kettle Corn come from?
    No one knows for sure where kettle corn originated. Some say that the German immigrants
    introduced us to kettle corn, others say it was the pioneers. Some say that kettle corn
    dates back to the 1700's while others claim it wasn't until the 1800's.
    One legend has it that back in the 1800s, after a long hard day rendering fat in a butchering
    legend has it rendering vat (kettle).
    Soon, very hot kernels of corn were flying every where. This in turn caused quite a
    commotion as everyone was being pelted with hot kernels. Then, at just the right moment
    in time, a shelf was knocked down dumping sugar or maple sugar into the kettle. The rest
    is history....or is it?
Why is J & J Kettle Korn, LLC better?
    While some use the less expensive soy or vegetable oil, we use 100% corn oil to
    enhance the flavor and taste. J & J Kettle Korn, LLC also uses mushroom corn
    kernels which pops larger than the cheaper movie theater popcorn that others may
    use, helping to add to the flavor. This type of kernel also gives it that classic kettle
    corn look!  All in keeping with our focus to provide a quality product at a
    reasonable price.  We could charge more, but we don't.
    Whether it was a butcher having fun, the American pioneers from the Mid-west or of
    German decent one thing is common and that is it was cooked in lard in a cast iron kettle
    over a wood fire while being stirred with a wooden paddle to keep it from burning. The
    popcorn was sweetened with whatever was at hand such as molasses, honey, or cane
    sugar before it was salted.

    Most accounts agree that kettle corn was widely popular in the early 1800s but fell from
    wide usage during the 1900s. In the early 2000s, it has made something of a comeback in
    America, and today kettle corn can be purchased at fairs and flea markets throughout the
    United States as well as online.
