Amusement Parks Make Me Hungry

Taking a bite out of the giant popcorn box at Canobie Lake Park.

SUBMITTED BY: Ari Garnick   LOCATION: Salem, NH (2011)

Imagine what this box would cost at the movies, where we just shelled out $7 for a large (free refills didn’t ease the pain)!

Does Canobie Lake Park boast the World’s Largest Box of Popcorn?

We filed an official inquiry with the Popcorn Board, the industry trade association of popcorn farmers, to find out the truth.

(Ari Garnick recently bench pressed the Liberty Bell.)


UPDATE: Popcorn Board spokesperson Genny Bertalmio reports that the World’s Largest Box of Popcorn is (or was) at the Avenue Mall Cineplexx Theater in Osijek, Croatia on April 16, 2011. The box, created to celebrate the grand opening of the multiplex, required a construction platform to fill — with enough popcorn to blanket the parking lot.

Guinness, Shminness… We still say that Canobie Lake has the World’s Biggest Permanent Box of Popcorn until proven otherwise!
