(WEHT)- Whether buttered, covered in caramel, or made in a kettle, Sunday is national popcorn day!

Experts say popcorn has been around since the 1600s but didn’t become a popular snack until the late 1800s and didn’t become synonymous with movie viewing until later.

Americans reportedly consume more popcorn than any other country in the world, eating 13 billion quarts of it a year.
