    Did anyone ever buy this?

    I remember back in the 1980s watching Ken being interviewed by Jane Irving on Good Morning Britain to promote his popcorn brand. The product wasn't in plastic bags like in the photo above but in boxes with the painting of Cliff Barnes on the side.

    At the time I thought it would be great piece of Dallas memorabilia but I never saw it in the shops (I think it was probably sold in upmarket shops, not my local supermarket).

    I've always wondered if anyone ever saw this being sold or even bought a box.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of it. Interesting.

    what could possibly be better than kicking back to rewatch one of your favorite episodes with a nice tumbler of JR Ewing Bourbon and a bowl of Cliff Barnes popcorn?

    Didn’t someone come on the set and try to kill Ken Kercheval over this popcorn business?

    How about a bowl of Miss Ellie’s chili accompanied by a J.R. Ewing beer. Or maybe a Victoria Principal Melon Ball.

    I remember having Ken Kercheval's microwave popcorn in the late 80's. There was a painting of Kercheval on the box.

    Yep. He wasn't on the set, but his business partner got on the lot to go after him.
