(WTVM) - Make sure you pop a bag of popcorn and celebrate - Monday is National Popcorn Day.

Popcorn in its simplicity has become an international staple for movie-goers and couch potatoes alike. With many varieties such as caramel sweet, salted, buttery, drizzled with toffee and others, it is sometimes hard to pick a flavor.

You also cannot forget those tin buckets of popcorn children would get from their grandparents on Christmas Day. For the younger generation who may not know, you would get a stocking stuffer tin bucket with butter, caramel and cheese flavors inside.

Popcorn is such a popular snack that there is a Popcorn Board that raises awareness of popcorn as a versatile, whole-grain snack.

According to the Popcorn Board, Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year.
