  • 1/3 Cup White Corn kernels
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt to taste


  • Over medium-high heat, add olive oil and sugar to the bottom of the Whirly Pop®. Crank the handle to stir the mixture, about 60 seconds.
  • Add the Corn Kernels and close the lid. Turn the crank handle for about 3 minutes until the corn starts to pop.
  • Continue to crank the handle until you hear the popping stop. Turn the handle just 5 times more to let the sugar finish caramelizing.
  • Immediately dump into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt before it cools. Stir with a long spoon to coat each kernel.
  • Serve immediately or let cool and store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
