Atlanta Gourmet Popcorn Celebrates National Popcorn Day With ’Popcorn Memories’ Contest


ATLANTA, GA -- 1/14/2005 -- Atlanta Gourmet Popcorn has announced a contest to find the best childhood memory story of that all-time favorite snack food, popcorn. The contest celebrates National Popcorn Day, Jan. 19. The winner will receive 10 two-gallon tins of Atlanta Gourmet Popcorn delivered just in time to enjoy at a Super Bowl XXXIX game day party. The story also will be featured on the Atlanta Gourmet Popcorn Web site.

Although the origin of National Popcorn Day is unknown, according to folklore this special day of popcorn celebration is tied to the Super Bowl. Sitting down with a flavorful and aromatic bowl of popcorn and watching the world’s most popular football game of the year seem to naturally pair. National Popcorn Day also is associated with favorite family pastimes such as attending the circus, movies, fairs and festivals.

“Over the years, many people have warmed my heart by fondly sharing their childhood popcorn stories,” said Atlanta Gourmet Popcorn Founder Clemist Jackson. “We want to capture and recognize the nostalgia associated with popcorn and share the stories through our ’Popcorn Memories’ Contest.”

To enter the “Popcorn Memories” Contest, e-mail your favorite childhood popcorn memory story of 100 words or less to by Jan. 28, 2005. Stories will be judged on authenticity, humor, conciseness and must involve family, friends or a loved one. All entrants must comply with the official rules of the “Popcorn Memories” Contest.
