(CNN Spanish) – Welcome. You are reading the second chapter about the differences that exist in the Spanish of the Latin American countries.
We already talked about sandals, flip flops, flip flops or quotes; We also established differences between T-shirt, T-shirt, T-shirt and solera. Now we want to talk about food, and one that could also cause some controversy, but that we all enjoy: pyre corn. Well, popcorn. Okay: cotufa … pop corn. It is understood, no?
Anyway, we love it, whatever it’s called.
✔️ We want to know: what do they call the snack that appears in the image in your country?

In Spain they are also called popcorn, and almost all of us make them in the microwave in packages that are bought, few people traditionally make them in a pot. They have always been salty but a few years ago the sweet or buttered versions came out
