Popcorn? Popcorn is a grain. It's pretty darn harmless.

Of course, what they really don't like is butter and salt, and they see popcorn as a vehicle for butter and salt. But if you go down that road, you can ban anything at all, because the harmless thing (which must be banned!) can almost always be associated with something else (which we already know is evil! evil! evil!)

The popping oil is another big problem. They’re banning the coconut oil, which is what makes popcorn smell so good in the theaters, and allows you to reheat it a week later and retain the butter and salt flavor. It doesn’t leach-out of the popped kernels.

Chris Plante (WMAL) had it on a segment during his Wed, June 13th radio show replay, yesterday:

“Happiness? A good cigar, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman - or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle.”
George F. Burns quote

.....for me popcorn is right up there with with a good cigar.

According to Adkins, the popcorn is the problem. The butter and salt, (yes, salt) is harmless. They have studies to prove this, too.
