This is Gloria Pate, let me tell you the tale of Freddie Pate’s Pink Possum Dust Spicy Popcorn Salt and how it came to be!
When Freddie was just a baby boy his Grandpa and Granny raised him. “Pop’s” weekly routine was to pop corn on the stove in a pot then pour it in a paper sack, season it and eat it out of the brown bag. Pop would drive them to shows, wait in the truck and eat his popcorn. Freddie recalls as a kid the memory of Tom T Hall stuffing Pop’s popcorn in his mouth saying, “dang boy, this is the best I’ve ever had”
So when we found out that popcorn is something else that Freddie & George Jones have in common this was meant to be!!
As we know George’s nickname was the “Possum”, so as I do I can’t turn my brain off at night I woke up and thought “Possum Dust” especially since George loved eating popcorn with his grandkids. And I can testify that (my Baby Boy) Freddie still carries on his Pop’s tradition of almost nightly pots of special seasoned popcorn.
So we present to you…
