Another liquid concentrate drink mix. I remember having clowns on the packaging. Several flavors. My brother and I would go with my mom to A&P or Albertson's and get that. Also we loved to get the free cookies from the bakery and collect S&H green stamps and Top Value stamps. We'd save up for neat stuff.

Ok...I thought this was for Jolly Time Popcorn in the can that you could pop at home. I don't a memory for that, so since no one has commented on this one, I'll talk about the popcorn. I remember the kernels came in a red can. My mom used to pop it in a cast iron skillet. It was my job to butter it once it was in the bowl. 70s TV and Jolly Time popcorn, that was the life!

Another stumper, but I found Jolly Aid drink mixes from the late 1960s. Company was Collins out of Vidalia, GA (near Atlanta). Packets have a clown pictured on front and back. Since the lady mentioned Jolly Time Popcorn, I'll cover it briefly. This was by the American Popcorn Co. (Sioux City, IA), since 1914. Fans of "Let's Make a Deal" may remember Jolly Time Popcorn being described by announcer Jay Stewart, who assisted Monty Hall during the show. A one-year supply of Jolly Time sometimes was given as a "Zonk" prize if a contestant made a bad deal.

From the daytime TV vault. an episode of "Let's Make a Deal" over ABC (3/22/69). Jolly Time popcorn is shown in a pricing game. The economy-size (one pound) can retailed at 79 cents. Usually, when contestants made bad deals and got stuck with "Zonks," they were given consolation prizes. $50 worth of Jolly Time was among products given out. After five miserable years (for Monty Hall) on NBC, "Deal" moved to ABC for seven years. While handing out $1000 bills and $5000 cars to contestants, Hall (in interview) said NBC treated him like dirt (despite show's success) in sticking him with a contract that provided no cost-of-living raises. "Let's Make a Deal" was suspended in 1976, returning in 1983 (in syndication). Production took place in Montreal as a cost saver, with Hall as host, until 1986.
