It’s Thursday and we all know what that means – it’s Popcorn Day! This edition of You Asked, We Answered is all about that crunchy, buttery, delicious kernel. The question we get asked most often about Popcorn Day is: Why doesn’t the library make kettle corn (a sweet-salty mix of popcorn and sugar)? The answer is quite simple: Because it would ruin the popcorn machine! And no one wants that, right?
So, to appease those clamoring for something sweet and salty, this week we’re mixing things up with mix-ins! Come by the library at 3pm today to try something different.
Popcorn seems to be a polarizing snack. We have noticed that people either love it or don’t care for it. If you are one of the few who are on the fence: Did you know that air-popped popcorn only has 31 calories per cup? Lightly buttered popcorn has about 133 calories per cup. That’s still less than most candy bars. And popcorn is a whole grain food, which means it has fiber to fill you up between meals, making it a great snack. Perfect for that afternoon pick-me-up!
Stop by the library today to try out our mix-ins, and let us know what you think – we do listen to you!
