Popcorn has been around for thousands of years! The oldest known piece of this tasty snack was discovered in a bat cave in New Mexico in the 1940s, and is believed to be 5,600 years old. While the same basic recipe has been enjoyed for ages, modern times means modern popcorn too! These recipes feature popcorn in ways you might never have seen before, coated in caramel, seasoned with salted seaweed, and sweetened with syrups and sugars.
