Popcorn is over 5000 years old. The first commercial popcorn machine was invented by Charles Cretors in 1885. Microwaveable popcorn was invented by Pillsbury in 1982.
Nebraska produces the most popcorn in America, around 250 million pounds per year.
Popcorn is actually a special variety of corn, and it is the only one that pops. The key to popcorn is the unique design of its kernels. Most importantly, its kernel consists of a very hard, mostly nonporous outer shell called pericarp.
