After a rather entertaining discussion at The Poppery, that led to the comparison of how tall each of us popcorn-enthusiasts are, we decided that all the many units that we could use to express how tall we are just weren’t fun enough. You know the typical units we see alllll the time; ft, in, cm, mm. We need something with a little more… pizazz! And so, we did what we do best, we introduced popcorn and measured the world in the new unit of
ppp (pieces of popped popcorn)!
After averaging a large range of pieces of popcorn we discovered how to measure anything and everything in popcorn!
The Things we Measured in Popcorn (ppp)…
The Portlebay Team!
We took a small, medium and tall member of staff and measured them in popcorn!
The Small One: Millie from marketing is our littlest team member measuring a mere 63ppp.
The Medium Ones: Diane our mother hen and Faye the lady with the money are the same height, measuring a very modest 67ppp.
The Tall One: Neil one of our mighty co-founders is the tallest in the pack, measuring in at the great height of 74ppp.
Items we Found at The Poppery
Our almighty kettle (an essential piece of equipment in The Poppery): just 10ppp
Our front door: 81ppp
A small teddy bear: only 9ppp
Steve from the warehouse’s forklift: this lift and shifting machine totalled in at 72ppp
The Poppery itself: the perimeter of our popcorn hq is 4,800ppp
and one last measure…
If we lined up enough popcorn to go around the world we would need:
