Jolly Time Popcorn Compliment - Bad Popcorn - Packaged (Non Microwave) Popcorn

Review by bespoke on 2008-12-10

I recently purchased a bag of Jolly Time popcorn. The kernels wouldn't pop properly, tried the hot air, tried the stove top at different settings with no joy.

Emailed the company and just received the most wonderful service!

I only complained as I was so miffed at the time spent and that we were really in the mood for some popcorn.

They explained what happened, the problem was resolved to my satisfaction and they apologized.

Very satisfied with their customer service. A lot of other companies could learn from them.

I will be buying their products again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a compliment about Jollytime. But, I, too, am curious about what caused the popcorn not to pop (in case I ever run into the problem).

Diane, if you have this problem, get a brown paper bag....

Oh heck... you know the drill!

What, C2O--and put it over my head? WT.....Oh, you mean for the popcorn. I see. Yep, I do know the drill. But, what if it doesn't pop? You see, we're back to the original question.

Then DO put that bag over your head. You've failed basic cooking 101. LOL!

You are very bad, C2O, LOL. Oh, and I don't need a bag over MY head.

If the popcorn has been in the system too long, I.e. wholesale warehouse, retail warehouse, store shelf, etc. it can be dried out. Popcorn requires a certain level of moisture in the kernels to pop. If the popcorn dries out too much, there is not enough water vapor in the kernels to generate the steam that actually makes the kernels pop.
