FUN FACTS ABOUT POPCORN

  • The best place to store popped popcorn is in the refrigerator or freezer. Because of the low amount of moisture, the popcorn will stay crunchy-fresh for over 3 weeks!

  • Popcorn can be ear-harvested, where the whole ear of corn is cut and stored for eight-12 months, until the moisture levels in the kernels reach optimum levels. At this point, the kernels are stripped from the cobs and graded to eliminate ones that are too small to pop efficiently.

  • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world's largest popcorn ball measured 12 ft. in diameter, 2,000 pounds of popcorn, 40,000 pounds of sugar, 280 gallons of corn syrup and 400 gallons of water.

  • Popcorn can be harvested by the combine method where the corn cobs are picked and shelled simultaneously. The kernels are then dried with hot forced air, packed and distributed for sale.

  • Popcorn contains fiber, providing roughage the body needs in the daily diet. Popcorn is low in calories -- only 31-55 calories in one cup of unbuttered, and when lightly buttered, one cup still only has 133 calories.

  • Popping at home? If your popcorn does not pop into fluffy, crunchy kernels, it may have lost some of its moisture. Rejuvenate it by filling a 1-quart jar 3/4 full with popcorn. Add one tablespoon of water. Cover and shake every five to 10 minutes until all the water is absorbed. In two to four days, it should be perfect for popping.
