Why Do We Get Insane Over Popcorn???

I love the smell, the slite salty flavor  and chewing popcorn!

 

I'm hooked, although, I never think of it!  My first thought is of "chocolate,  chocolate...."!!!!

BECAUSE IT SMELLS SO GOOD!😃     (except most microwave popcorn. P.U.👎)

 

That's why movie theatres used to pump the smell out onto the street. To entice people to come in.

I worked part time in a movie theatre. What torture. The smell was so enticing. As an employee, I could have as much as I wanted free. But, man, when someone would burn it, the stench was all over the place. You can't easily clear your nose of that lol

I remember a thousand yrs ago when we kids were sick,

Mom would fix us toast & popcorn w/ ginger ale.

To this day, if I’m feeling oogy or under the weather,

my comfort food is popcorn. 

Weird?

I could not live without my weekly dose of popcorn with butter on it.

I consider 🍿 my favorite food! I use a silicone microwave popper (never the packages) with olive oil. It tastes 

like it was made in an old fashioned popper.

Nope, not a fan. All It does is get stuck in my teeth. Yuck.

Enjoy butter while you can day will come when you'll be told "butter is out" either switch to 'I can't believe it's not butter' or go without for the betterment of your cholesterol level.

Re: Why Do We Get Insane Over Popcorn???

LOL! In high school, we had a snack bar which would pop corn before "snack" period...

 

Though we loved it, my friends and I decided that there were THREE smells that smelled a lot better, more enticing, etc than they actually TASTE..

 

Our Big 3???? Popcorn, toast and coffee!

 

Not that they dont taste good  but there is just something about those aromas that is iresistable...
