Celebrate National Popcorn Poppin’ Month
(NAPSA) – It’s that time of the year when Americans join together to celebrate their favorite magical, munching maize-popcorn! Don’t let October pass without celebrating National Popcorn Poppin’ Month.
Popcorn lovers have long celebrated the harvest of this naturally delightful snack. As farmers head to the fields to gather the crops, families and friends gather to gobble up some of the 17 billion quarts that are consumed annually. That’s roughly 59 quarts per man, woman and child of this naturally delicious treat.
What makes popcorn so popular? It’s a wholesome, tasty treat that’s versatile and fun to make. It can be topped with your favorite sweet or savory topping or eaten hot out of the popper. If you haven’t recently popped popcorn in a pan or popper, or if you know someone who has never experienced this popping method, take a few minutes for the simple pleasure of preparing the ‘old-fashioned’ way. As the oil sizzles, you wait in anticipation of the first ‘pop’; then, visual mayhem erupts as these hard-cased seeds explode into soft fluffy kernels. It is simply delightful watching this bit of magic and the smell is almost guaranteed to make your mouth water!
Be sure to celebrate National Popcorn Poppin’ Month this October by serving up some of your favorite popcorn treats.
