Popcorn.... who knew?

We thoroughly enjoyed popcorn ball making in December. But with the new year, I wanted to find some new recipes for popcorn that didn't involve so much sugar or peanut-butter... which I love so much but will not help me achieve those New Years R's. So what to my wondering eyes did I find...

www.popcorn.org
The Popcorn Board is a non-profit check-off organization funded by U.S. popcorn processors to raise awareness of popcorn as a versatile, whole-grain snack

The Popcorn Board is a national commodity promotion and research program. It was formed in April 1998 as an Act of Congress at the request of the popcorn processing industry.

We've just made the Gingerbread Popcorn Mix. Reviews are mixed. Caleb and I like it and girls don't. But we'll keep trying...

I'm not sure which most amazes me... That this was formed by an act of our government, or by all the fun ideas.

enjoy!
