Kettle corn is a sweet-and-salty variety of popcorn.
It is typically mixed or seasoned with a light-colored refined sugar, salt, and oil.
It was traditionally made in cast iron kettles, hence the name.
However, r types of pots and pans are used.
Most microwave oven varieties of kettle corn do not contain sugar, since sugar tends to burn in a microwave.
This problem has been addressed by replacing sugar with artificial sweeteners such as sucralose.
These formulations can have the sweet-salty flavor of kettle corn but not the same texture, which normally comes from the crunchy sugar crust of kettle corn made from scratch. (source)
So can hamsters eat kettle corn?d
Unfortunately because of its salt or artificial sugar content, it is not the best type of popcorn for hamsters to eat.
Plain popcorn is far better for them.
