Popcorn is one of our truly native foods. Even before Columbus set sail for the New World, Native Americans were popping corn in shallow clay pots. Today, Americans eat 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year. That's 59 quarts per man, woman and child. cont. from lifestyle How healthy is all this popcorn? Like most foods, it depends on what you put on it and what you eat with it. Plain popcorn is a nutritious, low-calorie snack. But drenched with butter or margarine and doused with salt, popcorn begins to fall out of favor with nutritionists and dietitians.

kevinc@herald-mail.com Pop quiz: What's the favorite food snack of college students? Hint: It's not popcorn.

But don't smash that air popper just yet. Popcorn proved to be the second most popular snack for women, with 16 percent of the vote.

Popcorn is one of America's truly native foods. Even before Columbus set sail for the New World, Native Americans were popping corn in shallow clay pots. Today, Americans eat 63 quarts of popcorn per man, woman and child each year. And while movies and popcorn seem to go together, theaters are not the largest users of popcorn - approximately 70 percent is purchased by consumers at retail stores in raw and popped forms and eaten at home. How healthy is all this popcorn? Like most foods, it depends on what you put on it and what you eat with it. Plain popcorn is a nutritious, low-calorie snack.

The kernels of family bonding: Popcorn and a good book Teaching your child | By Lisa Tedrick Prejean You've heard experts talk about family nights. Kids need time with their parents, taking part in a fun activity. So, your weekend plan to rent several movies and watch them over a bowl of popcorn with your clan sounds like it should fit the bill, right? Um. Not really. Think about it. How much interaction would that provide? Other than a few comments about the show or the need for more butter in the bowl, your togetherness is pretty much limited to staring at the same spot for an hour and a half.

It was another Saturday, another social event. My editor had given me an assignment to write about a local strawberry festival. I had covered the annual event in previous years. I remembered that the people there were charming and that the strawberry dishes bordered on divine. But this year, when I walked into the festival, I was struck by something different. I saw a young couple sitting at a table, savoring strawberry desserts while talking, smiling and gazing into one another's eyes.

"Green Lantern" struck me as a particularly useless blockbuster. It's ugly, it's uncreative and it's opening in a season with no shortage of better comic book movies.  I want everyone to have a fun time at the movies, so try salvaging the experience by enjoying some Popcorn Games. Eat popcorn according to what happens in the movie. You can come up with your own rules, but I have a few suggestions: Much like "Thor," the film opens with a wordy, confusing narration. Eat a piece of popcorn every time the narrator mentions a unique name or concept and you worry that there's going to be a quiz later.

When it comes to popcorn, more people are thinking outside the microwave bag. "There has been a renewed interest in stove-top popping," said Wendy Boersema-Rappel, spokeswoman for The Popcorn Board, a non-profit Chicago-based trade group. People also are soothing their popcorn fixes at specialty shops. "It might be the fastest growing segment in the popcorn business," said Bryan Casey, who co-owns Catoctin Kettle Corn in Frederick, Md., with his wife. Casey said his business has steadily grown since it opened in 2001, thanks to people who were seeking something other than the microwave-popped variety.
