Pop, Pop, Pop

October is National Popcorn Month! In 1999, then Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman proclaimed it as so. The month of October was chosen because of the popcorn harvest that takes place each fall in the Midwest. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fun Facts: *Americans consume around 16 billion quarts of this yummy stuff! *The peak period for popcorn sales is the Fall. For home enjoyment. *Most popcorn comes in two basic shapes---snowflake and mushroom. Movie theatres use the snowflake type and mushroom is used for candy confections because it doesn't crumble. *Popping popcorn is one of the number one uses for the microwave. *Popcorn kernels can pop up to three feet in the air! *If you made a trail of popcorn from NYC to LA, you would need 352,028,160 popped kernels!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Brands of Popcorn: Act 11 Jiffy Pop Newman's Own Orville Redenbacher's Pop Secret Smart Balance ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What is your favorite popcorn? ~Keep on Dreaming~ READER ALERT: BLOGGER HAS HAD A MIND OF IT'S OWN!!

  8. I usually pop whatever is on sale. But movie popcorn w/ butter poured all over is my favorite, just not very healthy! Have a blessed week. Jackie

  9. I come from the days of Jiffy Pop done on a burner on the stove. The top, covered in aluminum foil, building to a big, round crescendo.

    Popcorn - as American as apple pie.
