it was popcorn in a pie tin, covered with foil. it was bought that way. You would shake it on a hot stove and it would rise and pop. I dont know about you but it never turned out like on TV. Mine always burnt on the bottom.

that stuff was so cool! I never lived in the 70's but I had it in the early 2000's. Guess what? I'm watching Land of the Lost right now, I think It was made in the 70's.

Still available - found this at Target in the dollar section up front. To make it pop you have the SHAKE IT CONSTANTLY once it starts to sizzle!

Yep, Philip said it. You have to shake it vigorously and NON-STOP once you start hearing the sizzle. Doing so will give you a huge "bonnet" of great, non-burned popcorn. Remember how it used to come in "blue" and "red" flavors both? Now it's only in "red" flavor (butter flavor). I used to like the "blue" flavor a lot too (plain, no butter).

1st of all-you guys are now my BEST FRIENDS!2nd of all was i married to you at one time phil? anyway--popcorn was so much more fun when you had to work for it as the commercial said "its as much fun to make as it is to eat!" mine NEVER burnt and ALWAYS tasted perfect,furthermore,the 70's were ALWAYS good times for me-NEVER was i sad-my whole childhood was a magical and wonderful ride! adulthood,on the other hand,has turned out to be quite a dissapointment-so it all evens out i guess.

Never made a successful pan of Jiffy Pop. It always burned no matter how much or how fast I shook it. The house would smell like burnt popcorn for weeks. I even tried it as an adult. It was still a bust. Oh well. I liked Jolly Time popcorn better anyway.

Jiffy-Pop went on every camping trip that my family ever took. My dad could pop it up over the campfire without burning a bit. It tasted great out in the woods under the stars.

From "American Bandstand" over ABC (5/18/68), the first Jiffy Pop commercial, with Dick Clark, taped in color. He demonstrates the cooking process, then pretends to eat some, saying, "Try some!" In regular "Bandstand" protocol, Clark filmed/taped his commercials, the run them weekly for a year or more, before making updated ads. He did that primarily for Dentyne Gum, Breck shampoo/spray, and Jiffy Pop (1965-68). Other commercials on the show included Dentyne (filmed ad), Twister game, 9 Lives tuna cat food (by Star Kist) with a cute kitten, Polaroid Big Swinger camera, where B&W pack film replaced roll film on the original Swinger, and Certs breath mint candy (filmed).
