Confessing My Love for Popcorn

Popcorn is a snack everyone around the world knows and definitely enjoys eating it. Popcorn is a famous snack that is available in most cinema in the world. Everybody I know loves eating popcorn and never reject when I offer some. But, some people stop eating popcorn because they believe it is too sweet and high in calories. This is because the sellers add all sorts of additives and other ingredients to make their popcorn taste better.

This is because she has diabetes so she doesn’t want my health to be like hers. My mother controls my family´s calorie and sugar intake. She knows I like to eat popcorn so much so, she would buy around 1 kilograms of popcorn grains and make it at home so it will be much healthier. Following the advice of her doctor, she didn’t add any butter or sugar at all… It tastes bland and tasteless, like I am chewing a piece of wool.
