It’s National Popcorn Day On Sunday!

Popcorn which is also known as popping corn has proven very popular by a 300% growth in the last year alone, this is believed to be because of the ever growing TV and film industry.

Popcorn is able to pop due to the pressure that builds up inside the kernel causing a small explosion (or pop) when heated. Please see below YouTube video on how popcorn changes from Corn to Popcorn.

Popcorn has been around for many centuries originating in Mexico eventually making its way north. The Native Americans popped their corn by throwing it on hot stones over a fire. Today we rely heavily on microwaveable popcorn, which was introduced in the 1980s.
