The corn you can eat on the cob and the corn you pop are two different types of maize. There is only one variety of corn that is able to be popped into popcorn: Zea Mays Everta. There is evidence of popcorn being used in the early days in Peru, Mexico, and Guatemala. Even the Aztecs used popcorn to create ceremonial embellishments.
