Popcorn was introduced as a snack food to American movie-goers as a result of the candy shortages during the earliest years of the Second World War.
Attached is a petite notice documenting the fact that the substitute was a wise one:

"By 1952, movie houses accounted for about one-third of the nation's annual $350 million retail popcorn sales."

Reference is also made to the efforts that were made to secure "noiseless" popcorn bags.

If popcorn replaced sweets on the
W.W. II U.S. home front, what replaced steak?
