It would be hard to find a person who just don't love munching pop corns. Irrespective of children or adult, this particular snack happens to be an obsession, when you start munching it. That's the reason why my son drags the bowl of popcorn near to him when he suspects me of taking a better portion before he gets the chance to munch a mouthful down ;) When asked about the flavour and taste of popcorn, I just don't find anything striking to explain ( like sweet, tangy, savoury,piquant..) Still, how it makes an obsession is a cure matter of interest. So I thought yesterday, while I was going to make popcorn for my son, 'why not make it a little flavourful?' (actually make it explainable, flavour wise), and.. this pop corn was born. Actually a little more flavourful and 'explainable' popcorn.
The result : The dragging of popcorn bowl from one person to another became all the more vigorous..
and the munching....., all the more obsessive :)
