Kettle Korn: Poppin’ Fun All The Time!

I am one of the corniest soul you’ll ever meet.

No, it’s not about the jokes that I deliver. Actually, some people convince me to be a stand-up comedian and they swear I’ll be a good one.  They say that just the sight of me standing on stage is already a comedy skit.

Well, that’s another story. The other “corny” side that I want to share is my love for anything corn.  Roasted, grilled, creamed corn or whatever dishes with corn, I’ll eat it!

One corn I'll never get tired eating is pop corn. Well, not just pop corn--- it should be Kettle Korn. I can have the Chesse flavor on MWF and Sweet n' Salty Twister during TThS. And on Sundays, will munch on both.

Let me tell you a little history about pop corn that I discovered through the years of gobbling up this tasty treat.  Kettle corn, said to be the precursor of what is popularly known as popcorn, was introduced in America back in the 18th century. When the corn was popped in cast-iron kettles, it will be then mixed with natural sweeteners such as honey, molasses or sugar. It was a staple snack food of cowboys and farmers.

Personally, watching in movie houses is incomplete without a bucket of pop corn.  It’s just to be there on your side while you cry with the film stars or scream with them as crazy villains scare them away.

Speaking of movies, I have this "corny" dream since I was a kid that still tickle my imagination from time to time: I want to star in my own film.  Now if ever I will be given a chance to do one (whether an indie, Star Cinema-produced or maybe a Hollywood budgeted feature), I wanna be in an action flick with race cars, exploding "just-about-anything" and hot chicks. I was thinking of doing Ala-Vin Diesel but being the 30 something stout family guy that I am now, I'm afraid I don't have the same steam engine that I have during my younger years and I'll be limited to doing jogging to chase the bad guys or throw the towel instead of a punch in a fight scene.

Thus, it will be an action musicale comedy that I'll call "Fat and Curious." This will be a story of a man whose journey to parenthood became literally a walk down memory lane, trying (and eating) just about anything before giving them to his son. From tasting instant cereals to lollipops and candies to waiting for ice cream carts and cotton candy on wheels, he gained weight because of all his curiosities.   This should be an easy G rating since confrontations will be sang, race cars will be animated and always smiling, explosions are slimes like those in Nickelodeon and hot chicks comes with a gravy. 

How this story will end? Well, would you like such fantasy to end? I'll relive it and might make a reality TV show out of it.

During the premiere night of "Fat and Curious", I'll give away free pop corn to every person who will weight heavier than me. Now, that's what you call a promotion, right? Of course, I'll be serving only the best snack of them all--- Kettle Korn! For me it's the best because it makes watch movies poppin' fun all the time. I've been a fan of Kettle Korn for years.

Whether you watch it in the big screen or in your living room, movies are such wonders that simply capture the heart of fans of all ages. Though some films might just be a carnival of sheer brute and crazy stunts or over acting tear jearkers and compilation of silly jokes, what's important is the fact that even for a moment people from all walks of life find enjoyment in the midst of a crazier place called reality.

Now, any fat and curious gals out there willing to be my leading lady?
