Happy Popcorn Lover’s Day! Some resources state that popcorn originated in Mexico and that the Cachise Indians grew and ate popcorn in 2500 BC! Nowadays, Americans consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn a year; that’s an  average of 54 quarts per American! Popcorn is such a common snack that it’s seen at theaters, fairs, ballparks, and almost every other event across the country. You can buy popcorn in all sorts of flavors, but it’s so much healthier and cheaper to make it yourself.
