The Most Inconvenient/Awesome Way To Pop Popcorn

I’ve got a confession to make: I like food. I like it a lot. I like it so much that sometimes, I eat snacks, even when I’m not that hungry (‘MURICA)! I tend to prefer salty to sweet things, pretzels, potato chips, and, of course, popcorn. But that bagged-and-boxed stuff is like eating grease-coated arterial blockage, and air poppers are so loud.

Great news – these Swedish students have solved all my problems.

Their popcorn popper, dubbed the ‘Oncle Sam’, apparently focuses on achieving perfection one kernel at a time through a carefully constructed Rube-Goldberg-esque machine, complete with a tea candle, some salt, and a little oil. Is it quick and easy as a microwave bag of popcorn? No. But is it fun to look at? Kinda!

And by the time I manage a whole bowlful, I’ll be starving. Win-win. Thanks, Sweden!

Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
