Popped corn, that most ancient of snacks. Are there any other snack foods with such ties to a nation's history, from prehistory to colonial settlement to the depression to the war to the entertainment industry?

Also, link salad is very tasty today, thanks.

Loose corn, alas. My jaw gets mad at me when I try to eat corn on the cob.
