  • Popcorn reminds me of watching movies with my friends. I love the way it Pops, Pops, Pops in the microwave. The buttery, salty taste melts in my mouth. It's smooth and soft on my tongue, kind of spongy.

    Did you know that there are two shapes of popcorn, mushroom and snowflake? Snowflake popcorn is the type you get at the movie theatres. I just learned that the amount of popcorn that gets eaten by Americans every year is enough to fill the Empire State Building 18 times! During World War II Americans ate three times more popcorn. Why? Because candy was so hard to get.

    Popcorn is on my top ten list of favourite foods. It comes after pasta and chocolate. I like to eat it after school. It takes two minutes and fifteen seconds to make it perfecto!

    I ate a big bowl of popcorn once but it didn't come close to the biggest popcorn ball in the world which was 5000 pounds, over 8 feet tall and more than 28 feet wide.
