Tall Corn Tale

Hypothesis: Popcorn kernels learn popcorn protocol from the cob. It is, after all, connected to the stalk, and therefore the roots, surely—surely!—have a direct line to the ancient maize wisdom of the seeds. Ergo: Kernels that have spent the most time on the cob being taught the traditions of their Central American ancestors will pop and taste the best. Conclusion: These kernels don't leave the cob until they're popped, making them the most well-behaved and deliciously corny-tasting popcorn kernels in existence. Butter or salt the cob, place it in one of the included paper bags, fold it closed, place in the microwave, and pop like any other popcorn. 10 cobs included. Grown in Indiana.

Indiana

Josh Pottschmidt and Adam Bechtel met and became good friends while attending Purdue University. After graduation, Adam started his own business while Josh began a career in the agriculture industry and purchased a farm in Southern Indiana. Looking for something to set his farm apart from all the rest in the area, Josh began growing popcorn and soon made a momentous discovery: that he could actually pop the popcorn right off of the cob. He mentioned his findings to his entrepreneurial pal, and the duo went into business together, harvesting, packaging, and selling their unique product. Their passion and excitement for their farm business continues to grow, right along with the stalks of beautiful corn.

Clever idea and unique gift opportunity. BUT Directions need some mprovement. My microwave is 1100 so fairly standard. Will try again at one minute to see. Otherwise, the squirrels will enjoy.

Being it was a gift to a long distance relative, I'm sure if they didn't like it, I'd hear about it almost immediately >.<

Comments about UncommonGoods Popcorn on the Cob:

It was fun and different. Much louder POP! If you want to butter, I'd recommend melting butter and pouring on after it is popped rather than what the instructions say.

The packing could be better. These are a gift,so I haven't popped them. Bought mainly for the unique-ness, but since this is a gift like item, I wish it wasn't just in a big bag.

This is the perfect Christmas gift for a bunch of guys we consider hard to buy for. We paired the popcorn cob gift with the 6 pack tote since it was the perfect fit!
