Challenge #01630-D169: Can't Eat Just One

It is so hard to eat just one peanut or popcorn. -- Anon Guest

The humans had a word for it. They had a word for lots of things. This one was 'more-ish'. As opposed to 'moorish', which meant 'a human with darker skin, usually originating from a specific area of the largest continent in the northern hemisphere', this one meant that the person eating the thing found it so tasty that they wanted... more.

One such food, easily digested even by Havenworlders, was popcorn. A simple carbohydrate that, shorn of it's aggressively hard shell, could be an easy food for anyone and everyone. The additions, however, were as wide and varied as the consumers. It is wise, therefore, for a cogniscent to sample flavoured popcorns before dedicating themself to a Minute Bucket.
