Popcorn Ball

One tiny town in America is trying to break a big – and yummy – world record.

Hundreds of people in Sac City, Iowa, spent a whole weekend trying to make the biggest-ever ball of popcorn.

The town has held the world record for the biggest popcorn ball twice before, in 1995 and 2004.

Popcorn Ball Recipe

These sweet, crunchy balls of popcorn are easy to make.

You’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup marshmallows
  • 5 quarts plain popped popcorn

First, combine the corn syrup, margarine, water, sugar and marshmallows in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil.

Second, combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, making sure that you coat each and every kernel.

Third, grease your hands with some vegetable oil and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools.

Finally, wrap the balls with plastic wrap and store them at room temperature.

 I ######## identify as an attack helicopter. Just because I'm a kid doesn't mean they should be able to stop me from trying to install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons, and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. They act like my opinions don't matter just because I'm young. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to attack people needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

The teachers are correct, it is not your place to teach/inform/ask other students about something their PARENTS should be guiding them through when they deem it appropriate. You are on school property to learn as are the other students and I doubt when some of them were dropped off their parents expected them to be learning about something they may not be ready for. You might be but you don't get to decide for others. I'm all for the LGBTQ+ rights but not like this.
