Caramel corn, also called toffee popcorn, is popped corn covered with caramel or molasses.

Caramel corn can be drizzled with chocolate or tossed with nuts, like peanuts or almonds. The most famous of these recipes is the classic baseball stadium treat, Cracker Jacks: caramel corn with peanuts.

If you don’t like the sweet style of caramel popcorn, Popsations, a Maryland-based artisan producer, offers an alternative.

The company makes a lightly sweetened caramel: not sugary, not cloying, just light and crunchy air-popped corn. Options include:

  • Classic Caramel Corn
  • Dark Chocolate Caramel Corn
  • Milk Chocolate Caramel Corn
  • White Chocolate Caramel Corn
  • Classic Mix, a combination of caramel corn and cheddar Corn
    Popsations also makes Classic and White Cheddar popcorns. But we say: Celebrate National Caramel Popcorn Day with chocolate caramel corn.

    Popcorn, a whole grain snack, is naturally gluten free. The Popsations line is currently nut free as well. Learn more and buy popcorn at


    Popsations offers these tips to keep popcorn fresh:

  • Store popcorn in an airtight container at room temperature
