The garlic in this popcorn keeps vampires from getting too friendly!
Another way people used to keep vampires away was to scatter mustard seeds on their roofs. Supposedly if a vampire saw some mustard seeds he would have to stop and count each one. People scattered so many mustard seeds on their roofs that it would take all night for the vampire to count them. By that time it was dawn and the vampire had to return to its grave.
