The Rise of Consumerism
After World War II, America entered a boom period, and thousands of new product ideas hit the market. In the 1950s, the idea of popcorn tins was born as a convenient way to package popcorn to give as a gift around the holidays.
Other Ingredients Beyond Popped Corn
A decade later, other ingredients beyond corn began to be added to popcorn to create a snack mix of sorts. The first was a product known as Poppycock that used popcorn clusters, almonds, and pecans, all of which was covered in a candied glaze.
Why Not Other Toppings?
Believe it or not, it wasn't until the early 2000's that popcorn began to be seasoned with non-traditional toppings, such as cheese and spices. These popcorn flavors are so popular today that we forget that none of that stuff was around when we were kids.
Popcorn Toppings Around the World
People in different parts of the world top their popcorn with different toppings. In the United States, butter remains number one, but you'll find popcorn in almost any flavor under the sun, such as pumpkin, cupcake, blue cheese, jalapeno, and so many more.
