Each year on April 6 is National Caramel Popcorn Day. In January, we celebrated National Popcorn Day. We now add delicious caramel popcorn to the calendar, one of America’s favorite snacks. For many people, this chewy caramel popcorn treat is an all-time favorite.
Combining popcorn and molasses began in the early 1800s. Caramel was common as well, and with the production of Cracker Jack, the popularity was ever increasing.
There are many commercial brands and forms of caramel corn available in grocery stores, cinemas and convenience stores. There are also specialty brands available in stores, gift catalogs and online.
