Start Poppin’, it’s National Popcorn Day


Celebrating National Popcorn Day today!

It’s National Popcorn Day, and here we are celebrating America’s favorite snack. Did you know Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year! There is no history as to when this holiday began, but popcorn can be traced back to Aztecs and Peruvians from the early 1500s.

Popcorn is a type of corn or maize which pops when ideal amount of moisture is provided to the kernels. Popcorn is often recognized as a healthy snack since it’s whole grain and low in calories. Over the years popcorn has evolved from a simple European street food to a favorite all time snack, with many new gourmet touches and seasonings added to it.

Try some new twists and seasonings to your bowl of popcorn, from these recipes from Recipebridge:
