Macro 3.6.5. Challenge


Popcorn is corn which expands from the kernel and puffs up when heated.  Corn is able to pop because, unlike other grains, its kernels have a hard moisture-sealed hull and a dense starchy filling. This allows pressure to build inside the kernel until an explosive "pop" results.

During the Great Depression the popcorn business thrived and became a source of income for some struggling farmers because it was comparatively cheap (5-10 cents a bag) and sugar rations during World War II diminished candy production.
