The Old English word "corn" meant "grain" or, more specifically, the most prominent grain produced in a region. Since maize was the most common grain in early America, the word "corn" has been applied appropriately.

Today going to the movies without getting a buttered popcorn box seems unlikely. While popcorn itself was a cost-effective choice for a portion of snack food, it did not seem worth the effort to spend installing a machine and winding the building properly. If it weren't for Glen W. Dickson, we'd buy our popcorn from a street vendor before we go to the show. Dickson put machines inside his theaters in the effort and expense. Many theater owners followed suit after learning how easily he recovered his costs.

Today, more than any other country in the world, Americans eat 13 billion quarters of popcorn a year. Most of the world's popcorn is made in the United States. For popcorn production, Nebraska leads the corn belt.

How to Celebrate Popcorn Day?

It's as simple and delicious as it comes to celebrating Popcorn Day! You can start by just enjoying a bag of popcorn and oh, it comes in different flavors. If you want it simple, you can try classic blend of butter and salt, and if feeling adventurous, try to add your favorite spices and herbs to it! You can skip the butter and shake it down with herbs such as rosemary and thyme for a light, heart-healthy addition, or spice it up with cayenne. Or you can forget and hide the healthy options under a delicious caramel and bacon icing, and really enjoy the richness of flavor.
