Americans consume 16 billion quarts of popcorn a year!

That's 51 quarts for each man, woman, and child!

Popcorn is a whole grain!

It is made up of 3 components: the germ, endosperm, and the pericarp.

Most US popcorn is grown in the midwest!

Mostly in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska, Illinois, and Missouri!

Popcorn kernels can pop up to 3 feet in the air!
