Did you know there is an official Popcorn Board?  It's located in Chicago, Illinois.  Mrs. Gydesen's Foods I class explored www.popcorn.org this week and learned many interesting facts about popcorn.  Popcorn is a healthy snack, supplying you with whole grains and only 31 calories per cup if air popped.  The class also analyzed the 100 recipes on site to try to come up with a "signature popcorn" snack that could be put into production at the Majestic Theater in Lexington when that is up and running.  It was a great project and a fun ending lab for the seven wonderful seniors this class hates to loose.
