“Is corn the only thing that’s delicious after it explodes?”

"Is corn the only thing that’s delicious after it explodes?” was posted on Twitter by Tony LoConte‏ on May 15, 2012. The corn reference is to popcorn.

“Have we checked all food to see if exploding them makes them into something better or did we just stop with corn” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Popcorn
Popcorn is a variety of corn kernel, which forcefully expands and puffs up when heated.

A popcorn kernel’s strong hull contains the seed’s hard, starchy endosperm with 14-20% moisture, which turns to steam as the kernel is heated. The pressure continues building until it exceeds the hull’s ability to contain it. The kernel ruptures and forcefully expands, allowing the contents to expand, cool, and finally set in a popcorn puff 20 to 50 times the size of the original kernel.
