Mushroom popcorn kernals in Toronto

Does anyone know where to get them, preferably in the downtown area? I'd like to make caramel corn.

Thanks in advance!

      As far as I know, it's just popcorn that "blooms" bigger and fluffier.

        I think that's right. Apparently they're better to use for making caramel corn be/c there's less breakage; they're rounder in shape when popped, unlike the 'snowflake' shape that regular popcorn takes on.

            No, haven't had any luck. I seem to recall finally coming across one company north of Toronto that might supply it, but the name escapes me at the moment.

        I have never seen these kind of kernals, but if you have a Bulk Barn close by you should pop in. I am always amazed at the variety of things they carry.
