JOLLY TIME Kernels of Kindness donnahup

I’ve always liked JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and now I have yet another reason to talk love it.  JOLLY TIME is celebrating its 100th birthday by launching a national campaign called Kernels of Kindness.

The program awards 100 $1,000 awards to people and organizations around the country who bring happiness to others by doing good in their communities. And—BONUS!—every nomination earns a coupon for a FREE carton of JOLLY TIME Pop Corn. 

You know I love anything that promotes kindness and paying it forward so I’m happy to share this with you.

Do you know a person or organization who brings happiness to others by doing good in their community? If so, nominate them here!

JOLLY TIME® POP CORN CELEBRATES 100 YEARS OF FAMILY AND FUN WITH A CHARITABLE POP
Company Honors Family Legacy with “Pop-Up” Activities and Kernels of Kindness Campaign, Awarding $100,000 to Those Bringing Joy and Happiness to Their Communities

 
SIOUX CITY, Iowa – (May 15, 2014) – JOLLY TIME® Pop Corn, America’s original brand name popcorn turns 100 this October and is celebrating its birthday with fun initiatives, including a grassroots community awards program called Kernels of Kindness™ and a consumer giveaway of JOLLY TIME Pop Corn birthday bowls.
 
JOLLY TIME was founded by Cloid Smith in Sioux City, Iowa in 1914. Smith and his son, Howard, hand-shelled the popcorn themselves in the basement of their home.  An entrepreneur at heart, Cloid Smith pioneered the U.S. popcorn industry, personally selling his product to small grocers and street cart popcorn vendors. As the Smith family grew, so did the legacy of JOLLY TIME Pop Corn.
 
Over time, the line of products has evolved to thrive in an ever-changing snack food market. The 1950s brought both entertainment and popcorn out of the movie theater and into the home. In the 1980s, popping popcorn became even more convenient with the advent of microwave popcorn. And by the early 2000s, customer influence resulted in the creation of new popcorn varieties in line with more health-conscious snacking. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn has popped alongside families through all of it.
 
“Our greatest joy and constant motivation is bringing families and friends together,” said Garry Smith, president, and fourth generation member of the Smith family to lead JOLLY TIME Pop Corn. “We’re honored to have shared quality time with loved ones over a century—game nights, movies, parties, sporting events, and of course, popcorn.”
 
Today, JOLLY TIME remains a family owned business and has sold nearly three billion pounds of popcorn. JOLLY TIME offers its American-grown products in grocery stores nationwide and in nearly 40 countries around the globe. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is gluten-free and is made using non-GMO popcorn. The company’s products have carried the Good Housekeeping Seal since 1925, longer than any other food product. From classic flavors—such as Blast O’ Butter®, Crispy ’N White®, Healthy Pop® and KettleMania®—to more contemporary spins such as Mallow Magic® and Jalapeno Butter, as well as innovative partnerships with Weight Watchers® and Smart Balance®, JOLLY TIME embraces an entrepreneurial spirit while remaining true to its deep roots.
 
KERNELS OF KINDNESS
Starting May 15, JOLLY TIME will celebrate its birthday by launching the Kernels of Kindness campaign, a national grass roots program awarding $1,000 to 100 people and organizations around the country that bring joy and happiness to others by doing good in their communities. Nominations can be made online at jollytime.com/kernelsofkindness until June 15. JOLLY TIME judges will determine the 100 winners, and their stories will be shared via the JOLLY TIME website and on social media. Everyone who submits a nomination will receive a coupon for a 3 or 4 count pack of JOLLY TIME Microwave Pop Corn. Additional rules and giveaway details can be found at jollytime.com/kernelsofkindness.
 
“I know my great-grandfather, grandfather and father would all be proud that we are still a family-owned company,” said Smith. “But beyond that, they’d be proud of JOLLY TIME’s continued commitment to our community. In celebration of our 100th year, we wanted to extend that commitment to communities across the U.S. We’re very excited to see what $100,000 of good will bring.”
 
FREE OFFER: BIRTHDAY POPCORN BOWL
JOLLY TIME was among the first recorded companies to offer free gifts to customers in exchange for them mailing in proofs-of-purchase in the late 1950s. JOLLY TIME continues that tradition today, offering fun incentives for products that customers already buy and love. For its big birthday this year, JOLLY TIME invites families to celebrate its birthday, too. With just six proofs-of-purchase from any JOLLY TIME Pop Corn product, fans can mail in for a free limited-edition JOLLY TIME Pop Corn 100th Birthday popcorn bowl.
 
ABOUT JOLLY TIME® POP CORN
The American Pop Corn Company of Sioux City, Iowa, is an independent and family-owned company that, for nearly 100 years, has produced and marketed JOLLY TIME Pop Corn, the first-ever branded popcorn. JOLLY TIME offers a variety of traditional and microwave popcorn products in grocery stores nationwide and in nearly 40 countries around the globe. It has the only microwave popcorn endorsed by Weight Watchers®, in addition to the only microwave popcorn made with the Smart Balance® patented blend of oils. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is gluten free and is made using GMO-free popcorn.

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

 

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

 

 

In DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France, next to a famous Michelin starred eatery, is nearly cause for an all-out war between the two establishments until Le Saule Pleureur’s icy proprietress Madame Mallory recognizes her rival’s undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals.

Mother’s Day Flower Cupcakes

I have loved living in the midwest this past year and absolutely loved the snow and winter, but I there is something so bright and beautiful about spring.  I found these cupcakes over at Family Fun.

I think they are so pretty and fun! What a great idea to make for Mom or just for a spring celebration!  I know I can’t wait to make these Flower Cupcakes.
Besides the fact that they’re beautiful, they’re really easy to make! First you want to start with frosted cupcakes.
Here are some of the ideas for the flower decorations:
  • For the petals you can use large gumdrops rolled flat and cut into thin strips. Put a large gumdrop in the center.
  • Make petals with M&M’s and use sour punch straws cut diagonally in the center.
  • Use raspberry candies and sour punch straws cut diagonally and use a small gumdrop for the center.
  • Make petals from mini marshmallows topped with flower sprinkles (attach them with frosting using a toothpick).
  • You can also use licorice twists cut diagonally for petals and blackberry candy for the center.
  • Use Mike and Ike Candies as the petals and put a gum ball in the center.
  • Use licorice pastels for petals.

What are some of your ideas?
