FAQ – Common Artisan Popcorn Questions

Experienced and Friendly
What is the shelf life of the popcorn?

Our popcorn has shown itself to be stable for a year in the bag.  We guarantee the freshness for 6 months but if you store it in a place without a lot of change to the temperature you are certain to see a year out of each bag.

Can you Private Label or make a custom bag?

Yes, we can do a private label for your brand.  There are minimums that need to be met but we can do this if you would like to talk about it.  In short, we can design a new bag just for you, adjust the size and layout as needed, and print anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 at one time.  This would be per flavor.  The higher the number of bags that we print, the lower the cost per bag.  You would pay for the bags and the design and we would store them for you at a cost.  You would then order bags that we would fill for you as needed in certain increments.  This way the popcorn is always fresh when it arrives at your location.  We would charge you for the bags and bag storage and then a per-bag cost as we created and shipped the actual product to you.  This is a great way to spread your brand but will require some upfront costs to make it work.  If this is of interest to you, simply reach out to us and we can go over your options.

What does Non-GMO mean?

Non-GMO means non-genetically modified. GMOs are novel organisms created in a labratory using genetic modification/engineering techniques. In genetic modification of food plants, scientists remove one or more genes from the DNA of another organism, such as a baterium, virus, animal or plant and recombine them into the DNA of the plant they want to alter. By adding these new genes, they hope the plant will express the traits associated with the genes.

Is McClain Popcorn non-GMO?

Yes, all of our popcorn is non-GMO.

Can I order the popcorn in bulk?

Yes, we can create the popcorn for you in bulk and ship it to you in food-safe bags.  This is great for wineries, hotels, bars, and others that would like to serve the popcorn as a fight or in different containers

How should I store my popcorn?

The best way to store popcorn is to place it in a container with a tight lid. Glass is best, but plastic is also fine. Keep the container in a cool, dry place such as a pantry. Storing popcorn in the freezer or refrigerator is not recommended because it may alter the moisture content of the kernel. Also, never store popcorn in a humid basement or garage.

Where do we ship?

We can ship our popcorn anywhere in the US or Canada.

Can McClain Popcorn Company customize the label for my store or business?

Yes, with a minimum order.  We can design a custom bag or label for you at any time.
