Growing up in Paris, France, popcorn was not a treat found in every home. I think us Europeans were never very fond of snacks – the consensus is that it’s best to keep your appetite for full meals. Having popcorn at home was perceived as a very American habit, just like eating pancakes or frying bacon strips; we saw it in American movies, not in French homes (I only discovered bacon strips when I moved to Canada). There was only one place where you could be sure to find popcorn: at the movie theatre. Once at the food concession, there were always two choices: sucré or salé – sweet or salty. While my mother adored salted popcorn, I always chose the sweet kind. It was lightly glazed in sugar, it was crunchy, it was heaven.
