What continent did popcorn originate?
Popcorn was invented in North America by the Native Americans. When Pilgrims came over on the Mayflower the Indians taught them how to make popcorn, which was by putting maize (corn) in a pot or pan and putting it over a fire. The corn would then pop, creating the delicious snack that we love today.
