Sweet Color Popcorn

Sweet popcorn at Tibidabo amusement park
Sweet popcorn

To introduce today's picture let me start with these facts via The Popcorn Board: Americans consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year. The average American eats about 54 quarts. No matter how unidentified you feel with the Hollywood style of watching movies, the fact is that our parents were used to it and we are even more addicted. I remember buying a reasonable amount that I swallowed about half way before the end of the movie, now you see people carrying incredible king size buckets full of popcorn (many times covered in caramel!) that they are unable to eat even if they spilled part of the content just by accident. 

And what do you think of the price? I don't know in the US but here in Europe we are spending almost the same amount of money on popcorn and coke as we pay for the movie. 

Well enough rant for today, let popcorn business grow, at least the entertainment industry will be less boring. Here are some good popcorn nutritional facts given at the above mentioned site. 

In the image, a close look at a stack of color popcorn in Tibidabo Amusement Park, Barcelona. I used a vignette with blur effect to accentuate texture.


  1. I really love this photo - but I'm not sure if I'd like to eat it! (I think there must be a lot of e-numbers?)

  2. Buen trabajo de texturs y color!
    muy bien,


  3. palomtas de maíz... ya sabes, esto tienes que decirlo con el tono de música ese... sí, hombre, ese de titotitotitoti... no?
    Me encantan, mucho mejor dulces que saladas!

  4. This is a gallery quality photo, abstract and lighthearted at the same time. The composition and light are just right. In a way, it reminds me of a Jean Dubuffet sculpture.

    popcorn is great stuff to eat and it looks good but most colored popcorn is also sweet and I do not think that kind is good. To me it would be like mashing fried potatoes.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate seeing your name there.
