    As the journal of Lippische Landeszeitung wrote, Rinteln can be happy to have the Dunkelpeter Popcorn company moved into their town. Not only due to the sweet, sugar scent one can smell there on windy days but also Germans don't need to munch imported popcorn. I do consider their very tasty, crispy popcorn, with caramel added, the best.

    A few fun facts about popcorn

    American vendors began selling popcorn at carnivals in the late 19th century.

    The first commercial popcorn machine was invented by Charles Cretors in Chicago in 1885.

    Americans consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year. That's enough to fill the Empire State Building 18 times.

    Christopher Columbus allegedly introduced popcorn to the Europeans in the late 15th century.

    When popped, popcorn kernels can reach a height of 3 feet.

    Popcorn is low in calories as compared to other snacks.

    Nowadays, many movie theaters make a greater profit from popcorn than they do from ticket sales.
