A long, long time ago, when popcorn was not invented, the greek goddess, Demeter, was planting her corn. When her harvest was not great, she asked the greek god, Helios, to shine more sunlight on her corn, so that it would grow faster. In attending her many other crops, Demeter forgot to plead for the greek god, Poseidon, to add additional water on her corn. This caused the corn to burn instead of grow faster. But, instead of being disappointed at HER foolish actions, she got extremely raged at Titus and his “foolish actions.” This caused her to begin a war against him to try to get even with him and destroy him. In doing this, she unleashed the wrath of Titus all over her corn crop field. This caused even more extra sunlight to shine on her corn. Instead of burning like Demeter expected, the corn popped open and expanded out, turning whiter. Demeter was shocked when white, crispy, fluffy pieces of blown up corn appeared all over her fields. Because of the incredibly loud popping sound, Demeter decided to name this action popcorn, which is why we call popcorn popcorn today.
