popcorn trivia

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Pop corn pops because water is stored in a small circle of soft starch in each kernel. As it heats the droplet of moisture turns to steam & it builds pressure until the kernel explodes to many times it's origianl volume.
Americans consume 17.3 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year! The average American eats about 68 quarts! emoticon
