Popcorn is a type of corn kernel (maize) that has a hard shell with a dense starchy interior. When heated, the moisture inside the kernel turns into steam, causing the kernel to explode and puff up. This results in the familiar white or yellow fluffy snack that we commonly eat at movies, carnivals, or as a snack at home.
Popcorn can be prepared in various ways, such as air-popping, microwave popping, or stove-top popping using oil. It’s often served with salt, butter, or other seasonings to enhance its flavor. It’s a popular and beloved snack enjoyed by people of all ages around the world.
