October celebrates a favorite snack of many Astorians: It’s National Popcorn Poppin’ Month. This momentous occasion was brought to the Ear’s attention by a slick mailer from the Popcorn Board (www.popcorn.org).
If you check out their website, you will find that popcorn has been around since about 2,000 B.C. Naturally, a plethora of recipes awaits you there, as well, from Caramel Almond Popcorn Clusters, to Black Sesame Mustard Popcorn, to Hot Wasabi Popcorn and everything in between.

And guess what? Plain popcorn is actually good for you. So if you haven’t already, start popping.
