Several weeks ago, Gary and I went to the movies. The Naval Air Station Pensacola has its own movie theater and the price is cheaper than your typical movie theaters. How lucky are we that we have access to recently released movies and at a cheaper cost?
So, we sat off to see ‘Sully’ starring Tom Hanks and we thoroughly enjoyed it. No review from me – as I would have no idea how to write one – and certainly no spoilers!
When arriving at the movie theater on the Naval Air Station Pensacola, we encountered no crowds and there was no waiting in line at the concession stand. We bought a soda and popcorn for a bargain that included free refills of both – who gets free refills at the movie theater for soda and popcorn?
Before the movie began, Gary and I were talking about popcorn and I mentioned I remember popping it on the stove in a pot with a lid, then pouring into a brown paper bag. We would then melt butter on the stove (for you young folks – there were no microwaves when I was young, yes really!), then we would pour the butter into the brown paper bag and shake it to spread the butter on the popcorn. Gary and I also discussed in our conversation remembering Jiffy-Pop Popcorn. Who remembers Jiffy-Pop Popcorn and is it still in available for purchase?
Yes, I had to Google Jiffy-Pop and I did receive the following –
People also ask
Do they still make Jiffy Pop popcorn?
It can be hard to find Jiffy Pop in stores, leading some to wonder if Jiffy Pop was discontinued. The good news is that Jiffy Pop is still made. One reason it could be harder to find Jiffy Pop in stores now is that Microwave popcorn has become more common in the home.
Well this makes perfect sense because Jiffy-Pop Popcorn is made from foil and we know what happens with foil in a microwave. Then I searched popcorn, and received these among the results –
There is an interesting article titled The Science and History of Popcorn – the Snack that Saved the Movies on the filmmakeriq.com website that has the history of popcorn.
This is my interesting post about movies and popcorn. I thought this post appropriate because I understand that Thanksgiving Day is historically the day most people go to the movies, followed by Christmas Day. And Thanksgiving weekend many times sees box office records for movies. Okay, just for those that want to know, the record holder movie for Thanksgiving weekend was back in 2013. Any guesses?
Yes, it was Frozen.
And I am guessing on that Thanksgiving weekend in 2013, there was a great amount of popcorn being eaten.
If you are going to the movies this weekend – enjoy, have fun and eat some popcorn!
Oh, I almost forgot, there is also a popcorn song –
