That sounds like an unholy snack mashup of Corn Nuts and Milk Duds.  I'm trying to remember what I've heard those unpopped kernels called.  I keep thinking "widows," which seems unkind.  Maybe "duds," but not "corn duds."

Ahh...CRAP.

I think Corn Duds is the official outfit of Hee Haw.

Get on your Corn Duds Minnie, its 10 mins to showtime.  Saaaalute!

The kernels of popcorn that do not pop when heated are called "corn duds."

CRAP
The unpopped kernels of corn are called "old maids" or "spinsters," but if popped correctly at 347 degrees, "old maids" shouldn't be a big problem.  Does this make unpopped corn politically incorrect?

They may have tried, but I doubt body waste is very antiseptic.
