Popcorn is a variety of corn (maize) where the hard kernel explodes into an edible form when heated. Use this tag for questions about selecting, identifying, storing, preparing, replacing or cooking with popcorn as an ingredient. Questions about dishes which include popcorn, but are not focused on popcorn, should not use this tag.

Non-culinary uses of popcorn - such as for decoration - are off-topic.
