POTATO CHIPS ARE AMERICA'S FAVORITE SNACK FOOD. THEY ARE DEVOURED AT A RATE OF 1.2 BILLION POUNDS A YEAR.

PER CAPITA, THE IRISH EAT MORE CHOCOLATE THAN AMERICANS, SWEDES, DANES, FRENCH & ITALIANS.

NABISCO'S OREO'S ARE THE WORLD'S BEST SELLING BRAND OF COOKIE AT A RATE OF 6 BILLION SOLD EACH YEAR. THE FIRST OREO WAS SOLD IN 1912

WELL, I ATE ALL OF THOSE & MORE BUT NOW I'M TRYING TO LOOK AT A SLICE OF BELL PEPPER AS MY SNACK OF CHOICE. I HAVEN'T CONVINCED MYSELF THAT IS BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE YET....BUT.....I'M WORKING ON IT!!! : )

Pop corn pops because water is stored in a small circle of soft starch in each kernel. As it heats the droplet of moisture turns to steam & it builds pressure until the kernel explodes to many times it's origianl volume.
