NATIONAL POPCORN DAY
« on: January 19, 2021, 12:17:39 PM »
Finally, some good news, for a change.  January 19th is officially NATIONAL POPCORN DAY! :banana:
Nebraska is the number one producer of popcorn in the world and the American Popcorn Company, located just 25 miles away from me in Sioux City, produces the Jolly Time brand that is shipped all over the world.  Homemade salted & buttered popcorn is without a doubt, MY favorite snack.....we have it at least once/week with an evening movie. :popcorn: :popcorn:

I been off part of all day doing the unthinkable........ . work.  Had a few issues to take care of.  Now it is popcorn.  I was here for awhile early.

Did you know Orville Redenbacher personally wolfy?  I understand he lived in Indiana but know that  he is one of the main guys who made good hybrid seed for popcorn.  He was a scientific type in the ag business and drowned in his jacuzzi when he had a heart attack. Nebraska owes their popcorn industry partly to that guy.

I used to drink Coors and eat popcorn a lot.  My wife can't eat it so I don't get any popcorn these days.  I can have a beer though.  I have a fondness for Miller light which I am told is one step above warm piss by some "conosewers" but I drink what I like.

They still make that stuff in them aluminum foil pans that swell up like a tick when you heat em'?

I buy my popcorn 2 cases at a time. One for me and one for the grand daughter.

I used to have a Jiffy Pop popcorn hanging in the kitchen. I labeled it "Fire Alarm". The kids rolled their eyes and the wife wanted it gone. She said I can be a redneck but I don't have to advertise it.

For those that have never seen it:
