How does Cornude Supply Consumers v Business?
Ruth produces and hand finishes small batches of high quality Coated Popcorn. The quality is endorsed by the multiple food awards received to date. Each batch size is approx 7 Litres so Businesses and Consumers can order these Bulk Bags for Service, Weddings and Events.
Also for marketing & PR events, Cornude's iconic pots can be freshly packed and branded to your liking with a minimum order of 25 x pots.
Consumer packs (Pot Luck = 5 x Mixed Variety Pots) are made from time to time (Approx Once a Month) and those who sign up to the news letter (sign up form at bottom of each page) will be informed of the next batch date, and can pre-order for that delivery.
Can we get Cornude Popcorn into our local shops or supermarket?
Cornude does not mass-manufacture the product, so unfortunately no. It is made to order in a small artisan kitchen. It does mean that we can maintain a high quality, bespoke product. A real treat to behold. It's perfect for Hotel, Cafe and Bar service, and is available via Nationwide Delivery, so maybe this could be an option for that local fix.

Popcorn Bar FAQ
When should I present the popcorn bar?
Ideal when people are peckish, and a fab talking point for mingling. For weddings people find the popcorn bar is perfect after the ceremony and before the meal - a great talking point and the perfect munch.

How can I order my popcorn?
We can provide you with artisan, hand-made, popcorn in bulk. Just order here online This will arrive in sealed bulk bags with 22 x 1 cup portions inside. If you are having 100 guests you could choose to have 3-4 flavours.
What flavours should I choose?
When choosing flavours have a think about your guests palates and what drinks you will be pairing with. Our Sweet Signature Caramels are sea-salted caramels and toffees with the addition of toasted nuts or drizzled chocolates. We also have hot numbers if you feel a bit of spice would be in order: Hot chilli peanut caramel, Mouthy Masala (Savoury) and Chipotle & Aleppo (Savoury). Rule of thumb is that savoury numbers alongside salted caramels go really well with a drinks bar.

Popcorn Storage and Service
Pre Event Storage: Dark and cool temperature.(Cover with a tablecloth while storing before the event)
Opening: Never open the product days before the event, moisture in the air plays havoc with the freshness.
Display on the day: Ensure that the product is in a sealed container until service, again moisture in the air is not good for freshness. If your display vessel does not come with a tightly fitting lid, use clingfilm until guests arrival. *Chocolate varieties should always be kept in a cool area, and out of direct sunlight.
Serving Sizes: We recommend small / dainty serving containers- as Cornude's Popcorn is extremely luxurious & generously coated, a little goes a long way. Ordering generic popcorn containers from the internet is not a great idea as they are generally too big. Order Cornude's Popcorn Bunting, Serving Cornets & Containers here.
