number ninety/POPCORN

There's nothing like delving into a big old tub of buttered popcorn in a darkened movie theater.  A good movie and popcorn are one of the great combos of life.

i remember as a kid having Jiffy Pop which came in its own cooking pan.  You had to keep shaking the pan over the heat and the foil wrapping would grow into a big balloon filled with the salty, buttery treat.  I don't think they make that anymore; now all the popcorn comes in microwave varieties.  you still get to watch the package balloon out with all the popped kernels but its not near as much fun as Jiffy Pop was.

Popcorn is a great food in my opinion.  it has lots of fiber and tastes good.  Air popped is the healthiest choice, but i like mine slathered in butter and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
