Question ID: 272485
I have tried on several occasions to find out if Jiffy Pop whole
kernel popcorn is still available to purchase.  Everything on Google
at this point has been a dead end. I would like to purchase this
specific product but I do not know who produces it.  How do I find a
specific company?

Dear jac3,

If you mean the Jiffy Pop popcorn that comes in a self-contained
popping pan, I can give you contact information for the manufacturer.
Would that be what you need?

Greetings Jac3:

I feared that Jiffy Pop would go the way of the dinosaur because of
the invention of microwave popcorn but I have found current
information that it is still produced.  It remains an excellent
popcorn choice for outdoor camping adventures.

I recently (about 6 weeks ago) purchased some Jiffy Pop in the
aluminum popper pan at a local Target store.  It was marked down to 60
cents per unit.  When I popped some, I was immediately transported
back to my childhood and the amazement of watching that aluminum foil
expand in its bubble shape as the popcorn popped.  :)  So, you may
want to phone your local Target store and see if they are still
carrying Jiffy Pop.


ConAgra makes/controls the Jiffy Pop brand.  Their web page about the
product is located at where it
states to "look for Jiffy Pop at grocery stores [and] convenience
stores" - it does *not* reference that the popcorn is no longer
