Clarksville, TN – Ask me what my favorite snack is and I won’t hesitate a second to tell you that it’s popcorn. The aroma of popcorn can drive me to indulge any time day or night. I recently realized that I had no idea where popcorn originated or what makes it pop. Here’s what I learned:
According to www.popcorn.org , popcorn was eaten by Native Americans before the time of Jesus. Popcorn kernels more than 1,000 years old were found in tombs on the east coast of Peru; they still popped! Popcorn is believed to have originated in Mexico, but was grown in Sumatra, China and India before Christopher Columbus came to the New World.
