Happy National Popcorn Day!

Whether you like it sweet or savory, caramelized, buttered or plain, what better day to treat yourself than today! This time-honored started becoming popular in the United States in the middle 1800s. Later on Charles Cretors, a candy-store owner, developed a machine for popping corn with steam that the tasty treat became more abundantly poppable and by 1900 he had horse-drawn popcorn wagons going through Chicago.

You can thank Louise Ruckheim for adding peanuts and molasses to popcorn to bring Cracker Jack to the world! The national anthem of baseball was born in 1908  and from that point onward, popcorn, became inseparable to the game.

Did you know Popcorn was one of the primary experiments during the microwave’s development? Today, Americans consume 13 billion quarts of popcorn a year, more than any other country in the world. A majority of the popcorn produced in the world is grown in the United States. Nebraska leads in popcorn production.

Today, who can imagine going to the movies without getting a box of delicious popcorn. Share this interesting fact with your friends and family about America’s all-time classic food!
