I was talking to someone today who worked at a center for seniors, programming daily activities for them. She told me that today was Popcorn Lovers Day, and the seniors at her center were going to celebrate by having a popcorn taste test and ranking event. I came home and told Hubby Tony about my conversation. He said it would be a great idea if we observed the day too. It didn't take me long to agree. (We take turns coming up with the diet-ruining ideas.)
I wasn't sure where we could go for good popcorn, but Google reminded me that there was a store called the Kirkwood Pop Company just a couple of miles from the house. Their website menu listed 14 different flavors, pretty much evenly split between savory and sweet.
After Tony put away his work things at the end of the day we drove to downtown Kirkwood. A light, annoying drizzle kept us from doing more than walking quickly into the store, and back to the car when we were done. The store had all the flavors available, but quite a few of the smallest-size bag slots were empty. It was hard to decide, but eventually we decided on one sweet and one savory flavor.
Guess what we had for dessert tonight?
