Popped Corn Toppings

Posted by terrepruitt on March 11, 2019

What do you like to put on your popcorn? What is your favorite popcorn topping? I love popcorn and lately I have been putting a little bit of butter, olive oil, salt, and nutritional yeast. The butter gives it that rich flavor. The olive oil helps the nutritional yeast stick. The nutritional yeast gives it a nice flavor and adds a little bit of protein.

I have really been loving this lately. And it got me thinking . . . . there are so many things that can be put on popcorn . . . . I was wondering what your favorite thing is.

My husband doesn’t really like popcorn and I find that kind of surprising because popcorn is one of those things that I think of as EVERY ONE liking, but he doesn’t.

A few wiki facts (many copied directly):

–Archaeologists discovered that people have known about popcorn for thousands of years.Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit, City of San Jose Exercise Classes, Cambrian Yoga & Cardio Dance, CYCD

–The term popped corn first appeared in John Russell Bartlett’s 1848 Dictionary of Americanisms.

–Since popcorn remained fairly inexpensive during the Great Depression, the popcorn business was a source of income for many farmers . . . including the Redenbacher family.

–Americans ate three times as much popcorn as they had before when candy production was reduced by sugar rations during World War II.

–In 1981, General Mills received the first patent for a microwave popcorn bag.

–When referring to multiple pieces of popcorn, it is acceptable to use the term “popcorn”. When referring to a singular piece of popcorn, the accepted terminology is kernel.

–Popcorn as a breakfast cereal was consumed by Americans in the 1800s and generally consisted of popcorn with milk and a sweetener.

I didn’t know popcorn was eaten as a breakfast cereal.  Did you?

So what do you like on your popcorn?
