Popcorn Lover's Day is celebrated on March 14, 2024. It is the special day for popcorn lovers and is celebrated every year on the second Thursday in March. Popcorn is commonly eaten in movie theaters. This snack is usually served salted or sweetened. In North America, it is traditionally served salted, often with butter or a butterlike topping. However, sweetened versions, such as caramel corn and kettle corn, are also commonly available.
Popcorn is a type of corn that expands from the kernel and puffs up when heated. 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, along with prepackaged popcorn.
Depending on how it is prepared and cooked, some consider it to be a health food while others caution against it for a variety of reasons. Air-popped popcorn is naturally high in dietary fiber, low in calories and fat, and free of sugar and sodium. This can make it an attractive snack to people with dietary restrictions on the intake of calories, fat, and/or sodium. (With material from: Wikipedia)
