Many of you may remember the bad rap popcorn got in the press about 10 years ago when a reporter found out that coconut oil contained fat.
Now the mere act of chewing it has been found to be dangerous...




New York Daily News
Filmgoer's Popcorn Suit a dud
BY JOSE MARTINEZ
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Stick to the Raisinets.

That's the advice of a Manhattan judge to an insurance broker who sued a theater chain after he busted a tooth when he bit into a popcorn kernel during a screening of "Superbad."

"So what is the popcorn-craving moviegoer to do to guard against dental damage, short of bringing a flashlight into the theater to inspect each kernel for possible hazards?" Civil Court Judge Matthew Cooper wrote.

Cooper tossed Steve Kaplan's small-claims suit - which sought to stick AMC Theatres with his $1,250 dental bill - and advised moviegoers to consider nibbling one piece of popcorn at a time.

"The other thing may be to simply say no to popcorn, with its tooth-fracturing potential, and settle for something else from the concession stands, like those giant-sized boxes of Raisinets or Milk Duds," Cooper wrote. "But then again, aren't Milk Duds known to pull out your fillings?"

Kaplan, 46, hurt his tooth last year when he bit into an unpopped kernel while watching the raunchy comedy "Superbad" at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13. Twenty minutes later, he bailed out in pain - and because he found the movie to be "terrible."

But Cooper said Kaplan doesn't have a case.

"Until such time as the same bioengineers who brought us seedless watermelon are able to develop a new strain of popping corn where every kernel is guaranteed to pop, we will just have to accept partially popped popcorn as part and parcel of the popcorn-popping process," the judge wrote.

Kaplan did not return calls, and an AMC spokeswoman declined to comment.
