January 19th is known as National Popcorn day (not to be confused with Caramel Popcorn day on April 7th). For being a food that has been around as long as it has ( 3600BC in New Mexico) popcorn definitely deserves to be celebrated and have its own day.

I might call myself a popcorn connoisseur. I have loved it since before I can remember and then later in high school having a job at a movie theater allowed me to eat it almost every day… literally. I use to be just a butter and salt girl but now a days I am a big big fan of white cheddar topping and I have been known to get the extra mega large popcorn at the theater and eat it all to myself as my dinner for that evening…

As you can see from the photo below I have even eaten popcorn with tuna on top of a salad! Part of an amazing meal I recently ate in Tenerifeย  in the Canary Islands at a restaurant called La Laja at the Costa Adeje Gran Hotel.

Do you love or hate popcorn? What is your favorite way to eat it? Microwaved? On a pot on the stove? Air popper? In one of those tinfoil wire things over a camp fire? Movie theater style?ย  What are your favorite toppings? Do you have any weird popcorn stories? I would love to hear them! Happy Popcorn day!
