Indiana State Fair To Feature Giant Popcorn Ball
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. In China it's the Year of the Snake. In Indiana, it's the year of popcorn. This year's state fair will feature, what else, a giant popcorn ball. A company called Snax in Pax is using a mold that's eight-feet wide. Owner Will Huggins says it will be edible but he doesn't recommend taking a bite. Maybe because it'll be a little stale.
To make the 5,000 pound kettle-corn ball, the popping has already started for a fair that doesn't open until next month. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
