"I want to tell you how much we enjoy your popcorn. It’s the best ever! Much better than any on the market. The flavor surpasses all of them. Even the bag is terrific. Nothing sticks to the inside, and the used bag folds up just great. Thank you for all your hard work." -Lois
What sets Gutwein (goot-wine) Gourmet Popping Corn apart from other popcorn? Dirt. That’s right! Dirt! We start the process of creating the world’s best-tasting gourmet popcorn by using corn that has been harvested from the most nutrient rich, fertile soil in the area. This type of soil produces the lightest, fluffiest, most delicious and best popcorn kernels that can be produced.
How do we know this? Our family has a long farming tradition in Indiana agriculture. More than 100 years ago, in 1906, our great-grandfather, Philip Gutwein, Sr., moved to the Francesville area to farm. In addition to farming, Philip also started Gutwein Milling. Both businesses were committed to providing high-quality products and superior customer service.
We started Gutwein Gourmet Popping Corn in 1998 to carry on another family tradition: entrepreneurship. We incorporated the ideals of our great-grandfather, those of producing high-quality, great tasting foods, into the gourmet popcorn business. Our mission at Gutwein Gourmet Popping Corn is to bring you the highest quality gourmet popcorn products coupled with superior customer service.
How do we do this? All of our gourmet popcorn products start with these amazing golden little nuggets and our new, state-of-the-art processing facility that has been in operation since 2014. We offer a variety of gourmet popcorn products, from gourmet popcorn gift baskets to bulk popcorn kernels. We package our gourmet popcorn kernels in microwave popcorn bags, in flavors like light butter, hot & spicy and kettle corn. We also offer 2-pound poly bags of our gourmet popcorn kernels for popping on the stovetop or in an electrical popper.
In addition to our packaged popcorn, we also sell three different varieties of the best popcorn kernels in bulk. Each one is suited to a specific purpose, like candy coating or concessions. Whether you’re looking for a 50-pound bag of gourmet popcorn kernels for making gourmet popcorn gift baskets or a truckload of kernels for concessions, we’ve got your bulk popcorn kernel needs covered!
We believe popcorn is one of the healthiest snacks around. We also believe that Gutwein Gourmet Popping Corn is the best gourmet popping corn available. Once you have tried our products, we know you’ll agree. We hope you enjoy what we all cherish as nature’s greatest healthy snack.
