Pop goes the Diary’s puffedup bravado

Popcorn. Not difficult to eat but traditionally a real passion killer.

Not so good is Butterkist’s attempts to contaminate Marketing Week staffers’ palates with Nacho Cheese flavoured popcorn. Which is deviant. And wrong. The Popcorn Fork, however (see popcornfork.com for details) is brilliant. See you at the Odeon…
