is this Saturday January 19th, who knew this day existed?! I had no clue and it just so happens we have booked our very first ALL popcorn buffet on this very day...how fun is that?! I found this below information courtesy of, punchbowl.com.
National Popcorn Day
- It’s National Popcorn Day! Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year (about 51 quarts per person), which makes it one of the most popular snacks in the country. It is also one of the oldest.
Popcorn has been around for centuries. It is one of six main varieties of corn. (The others are pod, sweet, flour, dent, and flint.) Popcorn originated in Mexico, but eventually made its way north. In 1948, archaeologists in the state of New Mexico discovered ancient popcorn ears that were at least 5,600 years old! The Native Americans (in both North and South America) popped their corn by throwing it on hot stones over a fire.
Today, we rely heavily on microwaveable popcorn, which was introduced in the 1980s. To celebrate National Popcorn Day, make your favorite kind of popcorn and enjoy it while watching a movie with your friends!
We are so excited to be doing a popcorn buffet for such a beautiful couple this weekend. They chose 8 popcorn flavors which include: Salt and Vinegar, Cheddar, Buffalo Ranch, Caramel, Peanut Butter, Butter, Chocolate and Banana Split. I cannot wait to post more photos after the event. We would love to help you with a popcorn buffet for your next event, contact us today for more information!
