Robin Hood Popcorn

I like reading books about the history of odd subjects.  Whether gum, beer , milk or salt, if it is a history about something food related, I want to read it.   A few years ago I read a fun little book about the history of popcorn called Popped Culture: A Social History of Popcorn in America by Andrew Smith.  I was surprised to learn how many different kinds of popcorn there are, having grown up on the basic non-branded yellow variety.  So, when I spotted this article about popcorn trailers that were pulled by Willys Wagons, I thought it was interesting.  Below you can see the trailers built by Clyde Gould, see one of two wagons that pulled them, and learn about his attempt to create a popcorn business.  Unfortunately, the article doesn’t indicate how successful he was or what happened to the trailers.
