National Popcorn Popping Month
The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting colder. The crops planted in the summer are ready to be gathered. It’s harvest time, and the most grown and harvested crop in the United States is corn.
September and October are historically the ideal times to harvest corn. Farmers would work late into the night under the light of the Harvest Moon. That’s why October is also known as National Popcorn Popping Month.
Popcorn is known to have existed in the Americas for over five thousand years, which makes it America’s oldest snack food. In the 1500s and 1600s, Native Americans taught the new European immigrants how to pop corn. Over time, popcorn presentation evolved with different styles and seasonings.
Now Sugar Plum provides the ideal way to celebrate National Popcorn Popping Month with our New York City Checker Cab Caramel Crunch. Featured on The Rachel Ray Show and in the twentieth-anniversary issue of Chocolatier Magazine, New York City Checker Cab Caramel Crunch is famous for combining hand-dipped caramel popcorn with rich Belgian milk chocolate drizzled on top of it.
The entire history of popcorn has led to this perfect creation. Enjoy what the ancient Incans could only dream of with our New York City Checker Cab Caramel Crunch.
