Popcorn Capital of the World


In the United States there are at least 6 towns and cities claim to be the "capital of the world's popcorn." Some of these settlements attributed this claim to the annual festival. It seems people always like to have a reason to patsanavats and popcorn – it agulnaamerykanski, cheerful and healthy subjects, to concentrate the party around. Let's quickly look at the world capitals of popcorn.

Most of the nation's popcorn is grown in Nebraska and Indiana, so it seems that the two cities that have reported this, with the & # 39 are in Indiana. Valparaiso, Indiana, every year spends a great festival called The Popcorn Festival, which honors SARS Redenbahera, a former resident who created there a factory of popcorn and took part in the annual parade most years until his death in 1995. Popcorn Orville Redenbacher – a well-known brand of popcorn. Van Buren, Indiana, also calls itself the capital of the popcorn in the world. The largest employer there with & # 39 is the company "Popcorn Weaver" and every August they spend popcorn festival.

Only one city in Nebraska received the title of capital of popcorn, and, apparently, it does not mark the title. At least I could not find any information about this. Flooding in June 2010 caused a lot of harm to the town, where a sample is platinum. Marion, Ohio, has also had the title name of the popcorn, but unfortunately, I could not find this story.

Another former title holder – Ridgway, Illinois. Now the plant is closed popcorn. The first day of popcorn took place in 1958, he continues to be celebrated in the framework Galatsina fair.

Shaler, Iowa, was founded in 1879 as a station for the railroad as it pushed westward across the country. In the mid-1900s, the main industry for the city was packing popcorn. Bangguo and Jolly Time – the two companies are located there, and it prompted the citizens to take the name of "Popcorn Capital of the World", but in the mid-1980s, the company moved to other places.

Names and festivals may change over the years, but the popcorn continues to be very popular snack that is enjoyed by millions of people.
