Watch Popcorn Pop In Slow Motion, It’s Very Soothing (Video)


By Cooking Panda

Had a long day? Watching food videos in slow motion might help you de-stress. More specifically, watching popcorn pop in slow motion in the video below may really calm your nerves.

Warped Perception is known for its slow-motion videos. I guess they figured out the lulling effects a bit earlier than the rest of us. Either that or they just had the means to make it available. According to Foodbeast, the video is going at 30,000 frames per second, which makes the popping process slow enough to pique your interest.

You’ll notice that one kernel is popped at a time, so that we can really focus on what’s happening in the moment. We make popcorn in a bag in the microwave or on the stovetop pretty frequently, but it’s rare that we take the time to stop and appreciate how each kernel is transforming into a tasty little corn puff in just seconds.

 The video shows the white fluffy corn break through the outer shell into the soft shapes we know and love, and recognize as one of our favorite snacks. Check out the video to see it all for yourself.

Warped Perception specializes in making satisfyingly slow-mo videos, so if that popcorn video did nothing but whet your appetite, check out some of their other videos as well. One shows a hot dog getting caught in a mouse trap (slightly less appealing than that popcorn, I’ll admit). The rest aren’t as focused on food as we’d like to see, but there is one of a dog drinking water in slow motion that’s pretty tempting.

They created these videos with a very cool “Ultra High Speed Camera,” called the Phantom v2512. This camera has made it possible to capture perhaps the slowest video of popcorn popping out there. I’d say that warrants those 2 million plus views, wouldn’t you? These folks take simple things like popping popcorn (or a dog drinking water) and make them into art. How awesome is that?

LOL: This Mom Snuck Corn On The Cob Into The Movies


By Cooking Panda

While most people enjoy an outing to the movie theater, almost everybody can agree on one point: the snacks and beverages are usually totally overpriced at the cinema.

However, most movie theaters rely on the concession stands to rake in the money, and many have even gone so far as to ban movie-watchers from bringing in their own drinks or candy in order to ensure that if they get hungry, they have to pay the theater to eat.

One amazing and totally badass mom decided that enough was enough, and eschewed the entire system by literally sneaking in corn on the cob to the movie theater. She then proceeded to munch her way through the viewing, and we are obsessed with her spunk.

Per Metro, Dale Delrosario, the woman’s son, tweeted out amazing photos of his mom doing her thing and enjoying her corn in the theater.

“Some people sneak candy into the movie theater. My mom sneaks in corn on the cob,” he tweeted.

But get this — the Twitter community picked up on the hilarious tweet, and as of Nov. 30, it has been retweeted more than 2,000 times, with almost 4,000 likes on the post.

“This Caught My Eye! Hilarious. This Just Made My Monday LOL I’ve seen a lot of food brought in but never corn on the cob,” one Twitter user exulted.

“I love your Mom,” another proclaimed.

“Your Mom is goals! Seriously.” laughed a new fan.

But we must admit, we agree most with what this Twitter user had to say:

“She’s my kind of gal!”

Ours too!

Step Up Your Snacking With 8 Sweet Popcorn Upgrades


By Cooking Panda

Buttered, salted popcorn is a classic, and it will always have a place in our hearts. Seriously, it’s always so hard to pass up splurging on movie theater popcorn; the buttery, savory aroma hits you all at once.

But don’t let that limit you! Popcorn is not only super delicious, but it’s also incredibly versatile and lends itself amazingly to a bunch of desserts that are pretty easy to make and will challenge you not to eat the whole dang bowl by yourself.

Kick your feet up this weekend and lay off the extensive baking — instead, drizzle some goodness right on top of your favorite popped snack and go to town.

1. Cookies and Cream Popcorn

This recipe uses melted white vanilla almond bark to bind the crushed cookies to the popcorn, but feel free to use your favorite fudgy flavor.

2. Pumpkin Pie Spice White Chocolate Caramel Popcorn

Can’t get enough pumpkin spice in your life? Make sure it’s not for lack of trying.

3. Red Velvet Popcorn

This craveworthy recipe is the perfect use for the unprecedented event that you ever have a couple slices of leftover red velvet cake…though we aren’t totally sure that “leftover red velvet cake” is actually a real thing that exists. Let us know if you get to the bottom of this mystery.

4. Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn

Ohhh yeah… It’s every bit as good as it sounds, too. Plus, there’s a pretty easy basic caramel recipe on here that you might want to keep around for other purposes.

5. Maple Walnut Popcorn Balls

We’d never dream of badmouthing Rice Crispy Treats, but we do have to admit that it’s nice to have a change of pace. Plus, the earthy chopped walnuts and smooth, deep sweetness of maple syrup are a divine combination with butter and marshmallows, and they are super cute, too!

6. Caramel Nutella Popcorn

We love caramel, we love hazelnut chocolate spread, and just like that, they were married.

7. Popcorn Cake

Yes, this is real, and it’s no bake! Just mix up popcorn, candy, pretzels and melted marshmallows and mold it into your favorite cakey shape.

8. Buttered Caramel Popcorn Cake

If you are in the mood for a little more intensive baking, try this yellow cake topped with SALTED CARAMEL ITALIAN MERINGUE BUTTERCREAM (yes, that needed to be SHOUTED in all caps because it is THAT GOOD) and salted caramel corn. Feeling lazy? Just make the salted caramel corn and skip the middle man. No judgment here.

Would You Eat The World’s Most Expensive Popcorn? It’s Covered With Gold (Video)


By Cooking Panda

Berco’s Popcorn, located in Chicago, is known for its world-famous, delicious popcorn. Berco’s flavors include some that we already know — like butter and caramel — and some that are new to many of us, like white truffle and gold.

Wait, gold is a flavor? If you’ve ever wondered what edible gold tastes like, you can actually find it in some markets. To be honest, I’ve never wondered, since metal isn’t exactly a taste I crave. However, according to Bon Appetit, edible gold is flavorless, odorless and non-toxic. It can be found in pure 24-karat, or in mixes with silver. As long as you check the ingredients and make sure it’s edible — as in, there’s no brass or copper in there, it’s safe to eat.

So, Berco’s makes gold-flavored popcorn (video below). Except, since gold isn’t actually a flavor per se, it’s more a luxurious garnish for popcorn made from some rare and expensive ingredients. Other ingredients include: salt called Laeso, the most expensive salt in the world (from an island of the same name in Denmark), organic sugar for the caramel and Nielsen Massey Bourbon Vanilla.

I would imagine this popcorn tastes like vanilla and caramel. Maybe like a slab of salted caramel cake? Now that, I could try.

According to The Most Expensive Journal, the golden garnish consists of 23-karat edible gold dust, and is the final ingredient in the recipe. Overall, one kernel costs $5, and larger portions range from $100 for a quart to $1,000 for six and a half gallons. How much popcorn is too much, really?

If you want to try just one bite, you can do so for $5, and if you want to try one of their other, much more affordable and familiar varieties, you can do so for around $6. On the other hand, if you want to try something new and different, but don’t want to spend $100 on a bag of popcorn, you can always try the Way Too Expensive White Truffle for only $32. That sounds pretty compared to the Billion Dollar gold flavor.

Tune in to the video below to learn more about how it tastes!
