White Lightning” is grown from a non-GMO, hybrid variety of seed. Although sometimes mistaken for the common yellow variety of popcorn, a side by side comparison reveals “White Lightning” to be much lighter in colour, popping up bright white. The resulting popcorn possesses a delicate, crispy texture and a slightly nutty flavour.
If you have had popcorn in your pantry for a while, and find that it is not popping as well as it did when you first bought it, it may have become too dry. Try placing the popcorn in a sealed container and adding one or two teaspoons of water. Allow the kernels to absorb the moisture for a few days, and you should see an improved pop.
