Movie Popcorn Tastes Good…No Matter What

It’s funny that I read about this today, because my mom and I were talking about movie popcorn yesterday.  Something in the oil really bothers my stomach…to the point that I get quite ill.  I still eat it…lots of it.  It’s just worth it sometimes.  I realize how that statement makes me sound, and I don’t care.  It’s movie popcorn.  Turns out, I am not alone.

According to Daily Mail, “Scientists found we are such creatures of habit that once we have associated a place with a certain kind of food — like popcorn at the movies — we will keep eating it, even if it’s stale. Researchers gave people about to enter a movie theater a bucket of just-popped fresh popcorn, or stale week-old popcorn. Moviegoers who didn’t usually eat popcorn at the movies ate much less stale popcorn than fresh popcorn because it just didn’t taste good. But those who said they typically had popcorn at the movies ate about the same amount of popcorn whether it was fresh or stale. In other words, for those in the habit of snacking at the movies, it made no difference whether the popcorn tasted good or not. “
