Palomitas de Maíz

Here is a new post from our section Palabras Curiosas:

Las palomitas de maíz (lit. the little doves of corn)
Although there are other names used in different countries, this is the most common name for popcorn.

“En Nueva York el alcalde quería prohibir los regrescos grandes, pero él nunca dijo nada sobre las palomitas de maíz”.

(In New York, the mayor wanted to ban large sodas, but he never said anything about popcorn).

“El microondas es un invento muy bueno, pero yo prefiero hacer mis palomitas de maíz en la manera tradicional”.

(The microwave oven is a very good invention, but I prefer to make my popcorn in the traditional way).
