Buffalo Bill, first vendor of palomitas/popcorn in Spain?

La Vanguardia in 1889 re Buffalo Bill’s Wild West in Barcelona:

A la puerta del hipódromo vimos vendedores de caña dulce y en el interior unos vendedores ambulantes ofrecían otro dulce preparado con granos de maíz y miel.

Honey-coated popcorn was already part of Cody’s commercial package in New York five years before, and La Vanguardia’s programme transcriber had clearly never seen it before, but did it catch on then or was some later entrepreneur responsible?
