The moisture in the core of the kernal is superheated and turned into steam. The steam cooks this seed and the internal pressure builds. Once the internal pressue is higher then the strength of the outside seed wall it will explode. As the seed is exposed to the air temperature it is cooled and the contents of the seed have spread out and started to solidify at that point and the steam is released into the air. Repeat for every kernal.



Wow ! And all this time I thought it was popcorn elves and magic.

Can you explain how electricity works ? :)

Plus we messed up an order from the foodbank and ended up with 180boxes of microwave popcorn. Someone has to eat it.

So what would happen if the outside air was as hot and steamy as the inside of the kernel? Like if you made your popcorn in an industrial pressure cooker or something?:P

The real important question is, do you love popcorn more than twirly cookies?



Fuck no. If i had 180 boxes of twirly cookies, i think i'd die from excitement.

*imagine sunny flinging twirly cookies all over the place and rolling around in them*
