How to Buy Bulk Popcorn

Updated March 23, 2017

You don't have to own a cinema or even a large popcorn machine to enjoy the benefits of buying bulk popcorn. Acquiring large amounts of unpopped kernels can save money while allowing you to make the quantities of popcorn you want. While air popping kernels can be tastier---and less prone to burning---than those made in a microwave, you can choose either as a cooking method. Buying large quantities of popcorn is easy, though you may want to do a little research first.

Decide how much bulk popcorn you want. Remember you can use it to make a lot more than just bowls of popcorn. Popcorn balls, caramel corn and kettle corn are just a few of the possibilities.

Visit the websites of companies that sell bulk popcorn. Many vendors exist online and you can find some of them by visiting BulkPopcorn.net. You can also check out the websites of Home Cinema Center, MEG Concession Supply and The WEBstaurant Store.

It's not necessary to have a business license to purchase bulk popcorn from most online retailers.

Review the product information presented. You may be able to select special flavourings to add zest to your popcorn order.

Place an order with your credit or debit card. If you don't have a credit or debit card, call and ask if you can mail a check or money order. An estimated delivery date should be provided by e-mail when you order online and by phone if you arrange a mailed transaction.

Tip

Remember you can flavour your bulk popcorn with everything from Cajun to garlic spices specifically made for popcorn.
