The Fantastic Hollywood Life of JD…with popcorn.

  • Aug 29, 2010

Sometimes reviews are not just about communicating one's opinion to whomever will read it.  Sometimes it's about giving back and sharing something learned. This isn’t just a good idea.  This is a cost-saving, gourmet potential, slightly impressive activity that anyone can do and I thought I’d share it with you.

The news was so exciting to me that it had do be done with a video!

Holy $%^!, that was friggin' awesome, JD!  Totally awesome enough for my Awesomeness community ;)  I had no idea that you could pop popcorn in a brown paper bag, but what a swell idea!  And I love how I can make it as healthy or unhealthy as I like :D  Thanks for enlightening me!

Thanks Deb! I don't condone censored cursing, but I'll take the compliment! :) I just got home late and made me a small lil snack of it before bed. I didn't put anything on it at all...not even salt. It's a little plain, but still crunchily satisfying.

I put it in your Awesomeness group! :)

Junk gets stuck in my teeth and my gums and upsets my tummy. The worst is microwave popcorn. If anyone at work makes it I have to evacuate the premises. What an awful stench!

Popcorn 1
The year was 1948.  Researchers discovered some very old ears of corn in a bat cave in west central Mexico.  According to the scientists who examined and tested them these ears dated back to approximately 2500 B.C. when the Cachise Indians were thought to have grown and eaten popcorn.  Likewise, popcorn kernels have been found in tombs on the east coast of Peru.  Amazingly, some of these kernels still popped after more than 1000 years!   And legend has it that …

Tasty and yummy junkfood treat. Now comes in lots of flavors but the original flavor with butter and salt is best.

About this food


Popcorn or popping corn is a type of corn which explodes from the kernel and puffs up when heated. Corn popping was originally discovered by Native Americans, but became popular as a snack food during the United States Great Depression, especially in movie theaters.

Corn is able to pop because, unlike other grains, its kernels have a hard moisture-sealed hull and a dense starchy filling. This allows pressure to build inside the kernel until an explosive "pop" results. Some strains of corn are now cultivated specifically as popping corns.

There are many techniques for popping corn. Commercial large-scale popcorn machines were invented by Charles Cretors in the late 19th Century. Many types of small-scale home methods for popping corn also exist, with the most popular being prepackaged microwavable popcorn.

As a snack food, popcorn has both advocates and detractors. Some consider it to be a health food, while others caution against it for a variety of reasons. Popcorn can also have non-food applications, ranging from holiday decorations to packaging materials.
