I enjoy teasing some parents - usually mothers about corn (i.e. maize): Popcorn was introduced in Norway approx 50 years ago, as a Saturday night snack in the same main group as ice cream and chocolate. Or a special treat in movie theaters. Something that is not very healthy, but we must allow ourself some slight "misbeaviour" every now and then.

Lots of Norwegian people/parents still have the conception that popcorn and sugar sweets are equally unhealthy. So I ask these parents: Why don't you serve them maize instead? (We call it 'mais') They look back: I could never make them eat maize as a snack! Sure you can, I tell them: There are special variants that you can fry in a couple tablespoons of oil util the grain pops open and they are crispy and tasty! Add a little salt, not too much, and I am sure that they will love it!

Very few parents accept that popcorn and yellow, boiled maize essentially is the same food. But it is.

I must add that not one of all my friends can stand this crazy American idea of having butter dripping down on the corn to soak it with butter as it pops. Also, a major reason for popping your own is to reduce the amount of salt to a third of that in pre-popped corn. Rather, try spreading a little garlic granulate and/or ground juniper berries on it immediately after popping. Or experiment with other spices. Even though it is possible to force maize to be unhealthy, if you insist, you certainly don't have to do so!
