The word “corn” in Old English meant “grain” and maize being the most common grain in early America, the word “corn” was aptly applied.
As early as the 16th century, popcorn was used in headdresses worn during Aztec ceremonies honoring Tlaloc, their god of maize and fertility. Early Spanish explorers were fascinated by the corn that burst into what looked like a white flower.
Popcorn started becoming popular in the United States in the middle 1800s. It wasn’t until Charles Cretors, a candy-store owner, developed a machine for popping corn with steam that the tasty treat became more abundantly poppable.
Today, who can image going to the movies without getting a box of buttered popcorn.
Join us on National Popcorn Day at K Cineplex and let us treat you with complimentary samples of our new sweet popcorn.
