It is believed that the popular combination of sweet and savory, known as kettle corn, has been around since the 18th century.
While both varieties of popcorn have similar nutritious benefits, sugar added to kettle popcorn is more likely to cause you to gain weight (due to its higher calorie count and addictive nature).
However, there is no reason to worry if you consume kettle popcorn every now and then.
You can make it healthier by air-popping corn and using minimal amounts of salt and sugar. The two most widespread air popping methods you can use at home involve popping on the stovetop or using a particular hot air popper appliance.
Choosing your seasoning and cooking choices wisely can help you strike a good balance between a healthy snack and tastiness.
