Here is How We Got Microwave Popcorn


Microwave popcorn has led to the creation of even more types of packaging. Microwave popcorn has been around for 25 years, and has really revolutionized the way we make and consume this product. Many people still remember using Jiffy Pop, popcorn as kids. These prepackaged and aluminum foil wrapped products allowed you to heat up and pop the corn right on the top of your stove. It was very clever and appealing the way the foil pouch would gradually enlarge and get bigger until the popcorn was ready.

Popcorn was actually the first food to be microwaved deliberately. Percy Spencer of the Raytheon Corporation was experimenting with a magnetron (a new type of vacuum tube) when he noticed that the chocolate candy bar in his pocket had melted. This gave him the germ of an idea that perhaps corn could be popped using the same technology. You might say the rest is history because microwave popping has become the most common method used in the home setting to make a tasty snack.

Pop in microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes, and remove when the popping slows down. Open the bag carefully and season with salt or your other favorite topping. Popcorn also substitutes as a meal for many consumers in a pinch, and some munch on it when they are in diet mode as it is low in both calories and fat. In fact, one gallon of unbuttered popcorn has a mere 390 calories. Popcorn without that weird yellow stuff.

Microwave popcorn has changed in the last few years with the addition of new flavors like Kettle Corn, a sweet and salty popcorn variation. Kettle Corn microwave popcorns are comparable to movie style butter flavors in calories and fat. Microwave popcorn for butter lovers is definately the way to go. Pop up some family fun!

One little caution here. Microwave popcorn bags can be dangerous, because the popcorn bags get very hot, heating to more than 200 degrees Celsius in a short time, so be sure and exercise caution when using this method. Microwave popcorn also uses the wet-pop method, although the moisture is present in a solidified form of oil, flavoring, and salt that melts when the microwaving process begins.
