National Popcorn Day + 5 Things to Do with Popcorn



Tomorrow is National Popcorn Day! And really, who doesn’t love popcorn?

Did you know that popcorn is a whole grain and is one of the lower calorie snack foods?

Or that the largest popcorn ball was created in Sac County, Iowa in February of 2009 – it was over 8 feet tall!

While no one really knows how National Popcorn Day got started, there’s lots of fun stuff you can do with popcorn to celebrate.
