Old School Thursday: Pop Goes the Can Edition

Today is National Popcorn Day – and popcorn is one of those foods that definitely does deserve a national day of celebration. It’s so festive, for one thing, and historically significant, for another. Go popcorn!

In other January 19th news, today in 1825, the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans was granted to Ezra Daggett and Thomas Kensett. Hipsters everywhere thank you, Mssrs. Daggett and Kensett.

So that’s it. Popcorn in a can, anyone?
