A buttery, oil smell fills the air coupled with the sounds of pop, pop, pop…
Accurately stated, popcorn is its own smell. A kernel that expands and puffs in response to heat. A fiber-rich treat linked to lowering risks for certain health conditions. A yellowish hue when popped it is almost weightless. Each popped kernel is a unique shape that is placed into two categories: the butterfly and the mushroom. The mushroom is rough and round while the butterfly is irregular and bumpy.
Plain or dressed up with butter, flavours, salt and/or herbs. Popcorn in hand, now it’s movie time!
