Poppycock is a brand of candied popcorn. Though it is marketed in a variety of combinations, the original mixture consists of clusters of popcorn, almonds and pecans covered in a candy glaze. Other specialty combinations include mixtures with emphasis on cashews, chocolate and pecans.
Poppycock is the invention of Howard Vair, proprietor of a small specialty candy store in Detroit, Michigan. According to company history, Vair created Poppycock clusters over 50 years ago as a snack to take along on tedious road trips through the Midwest.
According to packaging materials, Poppycock uses a special yellow mushroom variety for their popcorn, which is exclusively grown for them.
