The next time that you’re at the movies…Try to take a short break from shoveling popcorn into your pie-hole, to appreciate the history and science behind the snack.
For instance… Did you know that popcorn kernels can be traced back to the ancient Aztecs? And, that the uncooked popcorn kernel is a sort of pressure cooker — helping to cook its own innards until the starches explode and solidify.
The short video Popcorn’s Beautiful, Explosive Journey lays it all out, and might have you craving some popcorn shortly after. Even if you’re going to torture your entire office with the stench of microwave popcorn — you can at least share some cool popcorn trivia too. It’s no wonder you never get invited to lunch.
