Do you guys remember Dick Grebe from Tarkio, MO who sent us the large paper bags that originally held four 12.5# bags of popcorn for shipping to vendors? His dad worked for and was a close friend of Mr. Manley at the Tarkio operations for many years. He sent me a photo of an old brochure that a local citizen brought him a few days ago. It was about Atchison County, Missouri and there is a great photo and paragraph about the Manley operations in Tarkio. It was printed around 1943. The text is brief but has a wealth of information.

The "popcorn crib" of the Manley operations is mentioned as the largest in the world. And an acre of popcorn could yield as much as $100 (not sure how often... per growing season, per year, etc.) And a very interesting bit of popcorn history is mentioned at the bottom of the paragraph. Popcorn was used as a "packing material" for shipping "cakes" around the world. And even more interesting..... the "packing material" was often eaten more greedily than the cakes. That is pretty funny !!! So... I always thought the little styrofoam pieces we use now to pack things in were sometimes called "popcorn" because they look like popcorn.... now I know real popcorn was originally used as packing material.

Thanks for posting that. Interesting and funny. I print out tidbits like this and post them on the wall next to my machine.
