What is popcorn?
Popcorn is an edible snack food created when a special variety of corn kernels explodes outward during the popping process. When popcorn kernels are heated sufficiently, moisture trapped inside creates pressure due to steam.
This pressure causes the kernel hull to break open and create a soft, crunchy treat you can eat.
Popcorn is frequently served alone, with a sweet or flavored coating, or with seasoning or butter. Movie theaters in many countries traditionally serve popcorn as a concession to customers to enjoy with their entertainment.
