KIDS LOVE POPCORN POPS by BETH MERRIMAN Parade food editor Y ou MAY THINK of popcorn as strictly a winter treat, but you'll find that kids love popcorn any time of year. With a holiday coming up this week it would be fun to have a supply of Popcorn Paddle Pops on hand for betwecn-meal nibbling for the ever-hungry small fry. These confections are easy to make and easy to store, too, because the sticks are not inserted until ready to serve. Make the popcorn pops a day or two ahead of time and store them in your freezer, or in the refrigerator freezing compartment. You'll be glad you did--and so will the youngsters.
