I know it sounds terrible; popcorn and milk mixed together. But think about the cereals that are nothing more than corn and milk.
Corn Flakes,Corn Pops, and Corn Chex are not much different than Popcorn. Face it, adding sugar makes anything better too.
Historical clues suggest that popcorn and milk sprinkled with sugar was the first version of what we know consider cold breakfast cereal.
There also exists the passage from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Farmer Boy all about filling one glass with popcorn and other with milk, then placing each piece of popcorn into the milk without overflowing the milk glass by even a drop. We tried this experiment and it indeed is true. Add the popcorn one at a time to the milk glass and it will not overflow.
Clearly the Cannon family passed down the age old recipe of popcorn and milk to Dad. In my memoir, Football Flyboy Dad always saved left over movie popcorn from their Saturday afternoon show, and had a great breakfast of cereal the next morning. He would top that off by sneaking a forbidden cigarette before Mom would wake up.
