Celebrate National Caramel Popcorn Day with Jody’s Recipe 53 Caramel Corn Sundae

April 6 is National Caramel Popcorn day! At Jody’s Gourmet Popcorn, we absolutely love this day! Jody’s desire for fresh caramel corn in Virginia Beach, Virginia when she moved to the area is how Recipe 53 Caramel Corn was created after all. 

Did you know that caramel corn has actually been around since 1870? Frederick and Louis Rueckheim, two German immigrants, opened a popcorn store in Chicago, Illinois and began experimenting with different popcorn concoctions. Their popular mix of popcorn, peanuts and molasses became the first caramel corn ever!

Because we love caramel corn so much, we want to honor the delicious snack on National Caramel Popcorn Day by sharing our recipe for the Recipe 53 Caramel Corn Sundae!
