More About Black Jewell

In the mid 1960's a small company popped up in Southern Illinois. It was a popcorn company selling 2 pound bags of popcorn to local stores and supermarkets. These kernels weren't the typical yellow kernels that you normally see-they were black. The black kernels popped snow white with very few hulls left after popping and were delicious! Very soon this company was harvesting popcorn in the fall and selling out by Christmas. They soon realized it was time to get things popping, and Black Jewell Popcorn was born.

Over the years, Black Jewell has grown from a small company with a local presence to selling black and crimson kernels all over the country. The company may have changed in size, but their standards have not. Black Jewell is still a family owned company that cares about and stands behind their product.

So what makes Black Jewell popcorn so much better? Black Jewell refuses to settle for anything but the best. All of the corn is carefully inspected to ensure only the cleanest, highest quality kernels make it into the plant. The kernels are then sent through a pre-cleaning process to filter out any unwanted field corn or seeds that can affect the flavor of the popcorn. After pre cleaning, the corn is taken into the plant a batch at a time to be further cleaned and tested. When the kernels are finally clean and the moisture is just right, they are bottled, boxed, and shipped.
