Kettle corn is heaven in a bag: popcorn popped in a large kettle with sugar and kept constantly moving so that the sugar melts and ever so slightly caramelizes over the popped kernel. No butter is added and therefore it is lower in fat than regular popcorn. It has a slightly sweet and slightly salty flavor, much lighter than caramel corn.
Quite possibly the most delicious substance known to mankind. It can be found at the Kettle Pop booth at the Farmers Market made fresh in a big "cauldron" right at the Farmers' Market. Samples are freely available in dispensers at the table.
It can also be found at Century Theatres in Sacramento. Try adding M&Ms for a sweet, salty and chocolate cinema experience.

2007-06-21 11:37:34 It's good stuff. A bag a week at the farmers market is the right amount. On a hot summer day, though the cooking of it looks pretty brutal. —RocksandDirt

2007-10-12 10:55:29 It was the most wonderful popcorn I've ever had before - the crunchiness, the flavor, the teeniest hint of salt...it's just addicting. We just kept grabbing the samples until we felt guilty and purchased an extra large bag. Totally worth it. —EvelinaChang
2010-03-01 16:27:38 I've always loved Kettle Corn, and my boys and I have made it an important part of our weekly trip to the Farmers' Market. This past Saturday my younger son burst into tears when they told us they were done selling popcorn for the day at 12:45. When I asked why they close earlier than all the other booths on in the market, I was told by the guy — a new guy, I should add— while he was eating a burrito, standing over the big, cold kettle, "Because it's Saturday." I suppose that was a good reason. —DrandyJones
