Popcorn. Yes or No?

I had no idea that popcorn has been around as long as the following entry says–

“Archaeologists discovered that people have known about popcorn for thousands of years. In Mexico, for example, remnants of popcorn have been found that date circa 3600 BC. Fossil evidence from Peru suggests that corn was popped as early as 4700 BC.” Wikipedia

Kernels popped on stovetop, in a mixture of coconut and olive oil. Lightly salted but unbuttered

Popcorn. Yes or No?

  1. Absolutely yes! Also, it has to be popcorn salt, much finer and real butter. Of course I’m not having any right now as I am on a strict diet.

  2. YES. I love popcorn. Buttered or not. Love it in “any form”. Stood in line for 3 hours to buy the Chicago Mix (caramel/cheese mix) at Garrett’s Popcorn on Michigan Ave. in Chicago many years ago.

  3. Absolutely love popcorn, drizzled with lots of butter. Didn’t realize popcorn has been around that long. Great info, thanks for sharing Ruth.

  4. Popcorn is good anytime. Always with butter. A few Christmases ago we tasted Poppycock from Orville Redenbachsr. We never heard of it before. We loved it.

  5. I have a microwave popcorn popper. It looks like a bowel with a loose fitting clear lid. I use a bit of oil, then add a bit of melted butter when it has popped. And some salt. There are quite a few unpopped kernels, but the popcorn is quite old and wasn’t stored all that carefully!

  6. I used to be a “no” to popcorn, only because I would eat so much that I made myself sick. 😀 Now that I have learned some moderation, I am a “yes” to popcorn.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
