Greetings Fellow Americans! Popcorn is indeed a worthy topic.
Originating, I believe, from the American Indians, popcorn is a slightly healthier alternative to other snacks. Not that it’s high in nutrition, but it’s lacking in the fat and calories so many foods in First world countries are filled with.
Plus, popcorn is very versatile. There are popcorn balls, jello popcorn, sour cream and onion popcorn, buffalo wing popcorn, microwaveable popcorn, Grinch popcorn (Melted white chocolate with green food coloring drizzled over popcorn with red m&ms stirred in [got that from my counselor]), the list goes on. And always, ALWAYS, salute good ole salt and butter popcorn. I actually know a family who used to swear by popcorn in a glass of milk.
Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you have any popcorn “recipes” you’d like to share, please comment below.
