Popcorn has come a long way since I was a kid. The only popcorn I remember having at home growing up was air popped or pan popped. The only flavors were butter and salt. Today, you can pop corn on a stove, in an air popper, in a microwave, and even on the grill. You can buy popcorn all ready popped and flavored in bags of all sizes. And oh the flavors! More flavors than you could ever try.
This list of American Made Popcorn Brands We Love includes healthy popcorn brands, bagged popcorn brands, air popped popcorn brands, and even caramel popcorn brands. You will see popular popcorn brands, and brands you have probably never heard of.
Are there any made in USA popcorn brands that are your favorite that we missed? Let us know in the comments and we will give them a try. Maybe we will add them to our list.

Bagged Popcorn Brands We Love
Popcorn in a bag is sooooo convenient! It's my go-to snack for a day at the beach, and it's a quick addition to school and work lunches.
Angie's Boomchickapop was born out of Dan and Angie Bastian's Minnesota garage and is now a BOOMing business that's popping (get it?) up across the nation's grocery shelves. They make my favorite bagged popcorn brand for kettle corn. It's perfectly sweet and salty and has the perfect amount of crunch too. It's hard not to eat the entire bag in one sitting. Open it with others around so they can help you eat it, or not. This healthy popcorn brand is made with non-GMO whole grain popcorn kernels. There is no high fructose corn syrup, and no preservatives. They also have a line of microwave popcorn, which also comes in a kettle corn flavor. Shop the Boomchickapop Amazon store.
Cretors makes the best ‘Chicago mix', bagged caramel popcorn and cheddar cheese popcorn. Both the caramel and cheddar cheese popcorn kernels are so flavorful and make for the perfect sweet and savory popcorn mix. The brand has been in existence since 1885. Cretors flavored popcorn is popped in small batches in Waukegan, IL. They even have a variety of organic popcorn flavors. Visit Cretors Amazon shop.

LIVE LOVE POP started when Lauren’s mom taught her how to make a batch of healthy homemade popcorn stovetop style. From that point on Lauren was addicted. After her mom was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer in September 2013, she quit her job so she could spend more time with her. During this time, Lauren decided to launch Live Love Pop in honor of her mother. The Selfless Snacking campaign allows us to snack happy, but more importantly, give back to those in need. Each of their flavors gives back to a different charity. The brand is woman-owned, mission-based, and they proudly pop their popcorn in small artisan batches for a taste you just can’t beat. Live Love Pop offers six unique and delicious flavors including, Truffle Salt, Sea Salt, Salt & Vinegar, Lime Fresco, Honey BBQ, and Cheddar Sour Cream. Visit the Live Love Pop Amazon store.
Popcorn Indiana is my newest bagged popcorn brand discovery. I recently spotted it on the shelf of Market Basket. The first thing I saw on the back of the bag was ‘Grown and Popped in the USA', so of course I just had to give it a try! The Movie Theatre Butter flavor had my name all over it. The best thing- it's made with real butter!! It tastes like popcorn I just popped myself. Popcorn Indiana focuses on real ingredients, like the real butter, and the real Wisconsin cheese that is featured in their White Cheddar flavor. My next Popcorn Indiana flavor to try is the Black & White Fudge Drizzle. They didn't have it in stock at Market Basket, but I used the product locator tool on their website and found that I can get it at my local CVS.
Skinny Pop is my favorite bagged popcorn brand when I am in the mood for plain-old salted popcorn. Skinny Pop's Original bagged popcorn is popped to perfection with just the right amount of salt. Skinny Pop's Twist of Lime is my other go-to when I am craving something sour. Skinny Pop was founded in 2010 with the goal to be the cleanest, healthiest popcorn brand in the market. They have stuck to that goal by using the fewest ingredients possible. All their popcorn in non-GMO, and contains no artificial ingredients. This popcorn brand even comes in snack pack bag sizes. Skinny Pop makes microwave popcorn too. Visit the Skinny Pop Amazon shop.
Tiny But Mighty Popcorn is an American grown heirloom popcorn brand that is the tiniest of popcorns you'll find while still being insanely delicious. Despite their size, these tiny kernels are packed with flavor. The thin outer hulls virtually disintegrate when air popped, so it won’t get stuck in your teeth and they are easier to digest; that's great news for folks with dental or digestive issues. This little popcorn has a rich history, dating back to the 1850s and an heirloom seed. It's never been modified or hybridized. Tiny But Mighty Popcorn offers seven different products, all grown in Iowa. The products include unpopped kernels for air popping, air popped bagged popcorn varieties (Sea Salt, White Cheddar, and Butter) and microwave varieties (spicy southwest, butter & light butter). All of the Tiny But Mighty products are non-GMO, gluten-free, and kosher. I'm a HUGE fan of the popped White Cheddar popcorn for its subtle cheesiness and lightness. Visit the Tiny But Mighty Popcorn Amazon shop.

Yoder Popcorn in Shipshewana, Indiana, has been growing and harvesting its own kernels since 1936. One of our editors swears by the Tiny Tender in either white or yellow (yellow kernels produce a stronger corn flavor). Yoder also makes its own microwave and already-popped popcorn as well. If you're unsure, buy a sampler pack!
