Ballpark Popcorn Crunch

Written by  Staff Writer

It’s been said that baseball is the emblem of the American spirit: Simple in concept, complex in reality. You start with a ball and a bat and end up with a game that ignites passions for generations.

Baseball is in our nation’s collective DNA and whether you’re cheering on your child’s first base run or barking at the ump in a big league ballpark, baseball is best enjoyed in the company of another All-American—popcorn.

Like baseball, popcorn is deceptively simple in concept: A seed from a grass—which just happens to undergo a unique physiological transformation when heated turning it into a captivating and delicious snack.

And, like baseball, popcorn is American thru and thru. It’s been around for thousands of years, yet over time, it has remained a humble little kernel of goodness. Wholesome and whole grain, popcorn contains energy-producing carbohydrates and provides needed fiber to the diet. And, popcorn is naturally low in fat and calories, putting it in a league of its own. Get in the spirit with these ballpark inspired snacks courtesy of the Popcorn Board (www.popcorn.org).
