Did you know that?

Popcorn is a cereal that has been cultivated for over 5000 years.

5000 years? Yes, archaeological evidence suggests that popcorn was eaten by Native Americans in North America around 5000 years ago. Popcorn corn cobs found in archaeological sites in Central America have remained intact, showing that popcorn was eaten in pre-Columbian times. It was used in religious ceremonies and feasts, and became popular as a snack in movie theaters in the United States in the early 20th century, specifically in the 1930s, due to its low cost and convenience. ability to be produced quickly and easily.

There are two types of corn used to make popcorn: popcorn and hard popcorn. Popcorn is often divided into two main types: butterfly-type popcorn and mushroom-type popcorn. Butterfly-style popcorn has longer cobs and a thinner shell, making it a popular choice for people looking for lighter, crispier popcorn. Mushroom-type popcorn has a mushroom shape when popped and a thicker, denser shell, making it a popular choice for people who prefer firmer popcorn.

At home, we use mushroom-type popcorn for all our popcorn except for our "As in the movies".

Popcorn is eaten around the world, but it's most popular as a snack in North America. It is readily available and can be prepared in different ways to suit various tastes and personal preferences.

Preparing popcorn also requires less equipment than crisps.

PS Our dill pickle popcorn is back in stock ;)
