Remember This?

Jiffy Pop!

I was under the assumption that if you were a child of the 70's this is what you ate when it came time for popcorn.  

I guess I was wrong.  Until New Year's Eve 2010, my husband, 41 years old had never had Jiffy Pop.  Tragic, I know!

He came home from the store that afternoon with a package of saying he'd walked by it and just had to buy it because he'd never had it growing up and wanted to finally try it.  

So I popped it for him that night.  I wasn't nearly as good as I remember.  I'd say at least half of it didn't even pop.  Hubby was not impressed.  But hey, as a kid in the 70's it was cool!  We didn't have microwave popcorn we had Jiffy Pop. 

He ended up putting all the unpopped ones in some oil and popping them.  And of course, I being the bad blogger that I am didn't even photograph the festivities to show off here.
