Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Popcorn Day

Archaeologists have discovered that people have known about popcorn for thousands of years. In Mexico, remnants of popcorn have been found that date back to circa 3600 BC and fossil evidence from Peru suggests that corn may have been popped as early as 4700 BC.

It is also likely that popcorn was part of the first Thanksgiving meal.

Popcorn became a popular snack in the late 19th century after the invention of the first large-scale commercial popcorn machine by Charles Cretors.
