Happy national popcorn day

Posted:

(WVVA) -- Television watchers, movie goers and junk food fiends, rejoice! Sunday is National Popcorn Day.  

January 19 is the day that is widely recognized as this tasty treat's special day.  Some argue that it is better celebrated on the superbowl though.

No one knows how the holiday started, but over the years popcorn has turned into more than just a couch-potato-loving-snack.  Besides cheese and caramel flavors, gourmet popcorn shops have been known to sell unique flavors like bubblegum or bacon.
