Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Popping Corn was one of three products featured on “Titans of Taste,” a special program on the Food Network Tuesday night at 9 p.m. EDT.
Glen and Evelyn Brown, representing the Clay County Popcorn Festival were interviewed. So, were members of the Redenbacher family who talked about his love of popcorn and family values.
The program told his story of attending Purdue University and his tireless efforts to create a better popcorn hybrid.
The interviews with the Browns were taped in their home at Brazil. Redenbacher was born and raised on the family farm near Center Point.
Also featured on the hour-long program were Oscar Mayer and Chef Boy-ar-dee.
