Although corn is now a pop icon, it built its fan base through standing gigs in breakfast cereals and furtive poems published under the pseudonym 'C. Cob.' Exalt the subtle brilliance of popcorn with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $21 worth of fresh-popped kettle corn from Ear’s What’s Poppin’.

Ear’s What’s Poppin’ pops tasty kernels to perfection using locally grown, non-genetically-modified corn.
