Need a Halloween costume idea? How about going trick or treating dressed as a box of popcorn?
Here are a couple of ideas:
Wear a white shirt and red pants or
vertically stripped red and white pants or shirt, and a plain white baseball
cap. Use a fabric glue and glue as much popped popcorn on your cap as you want.
Now you are a box of popcorn.
Take a large box (large enough that
will fit over your head and ride on your shoulders). Leave the bottom open and
cut holes for your head and arms. Paint the box with vertical red and white
strips. Cover a white baseball cap with glued on popcorn. Put the cap on your
head and you have another box of popcorn costume.

Pender High School is a rural school located
in Burgaw, NC. The school has a new project that is tasty as well as academic.
The school is growing popcorn on its campus.
Not only are they just growing the popcorn, they are also processing it—some 700
pounds of popcorn!
The popcorn was harvested in September, and
then the agricultural students cleaned the popcorn. They used a special machine
and shoveled the kernels into the machine, which then shook the popcorn and
blew the dust off of it. Then the kernels were fell into a barrel.
Art students also got into the project when
they designed a logo for Pender Pop. The school’s business students are working
on a local distribution plan for Pender Pop.
The project was made possible with the help
of a local farmer, a NC State Extension agent, and the Pender Alliance for Teen
Way to go Pender High School! Keep on poppin’!

Popcorn—the healthy treat—may have some
problems if you are using the microwave bagged stuff.
There have been concerns for ages about the
popcorn in the microwavable bags that is popped in the microwave.
Well, the problem, it seems, is the steam
that is emitted when the bag is opened. A chemical known as vegetable-oil
metabolite (in the steam) comes out of the bag when it’s opened.
How to avoid the problem of the chemical in
the steam? First, don’t open the bag immediately after the popcorn is popped—wait
a few moments. Then, when you open the bag, don’t put your nose right by the
opening. That way, when the steam is emitted, along with the vegetable-oil
metabolite, you won’t breathe in any of it.

Well, not really “strikes again,” but has
come up with some more new flavors. (Remember, this is the store than has Prime
Rib End Cut flavored popcorn.)
Their two new flavors are banana cream pie and
lychee sorbet popcorn.
Just in time for the holidays!
