Title: La Jolla hardware store forced to stop giving away free popcorn

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A La Jolla hardware store is being forced to remove their popcorn machine they say was used to give the buttery treat to customers for free over the last 25 years.

According to a food inspection report, the Meanley and Son Hardware on the 7700 block of Girard was investigated for serving popcorn without a permit.

"Everybody has had fun with this until now, but we have to obey the law," said co-owner Bob Meanley.

One of the store's owners says the inspection happened after someone complained.

A customer reportedly saw another person reach into the popcorn machine barehanded.

"I’m sorry we can’t continue with the popcorn, but we’ll do it with everything else," added Meanley.

In the report, the inspector said the small Gold Medal brand popcorn maker was seen in use and with “popped popcorn prepared.”

The report forces the hardware store to stop making popcorn and to remove the popcorn machine from the building.

If the shop wants to give away popcorn, according to the health department, they’ll have to go through the permitting process. A process which will also legally require that the store install three compartment sinks. 

The store says staff regularly cleaned the machine and refilled it with popcorn throughout the day for customers to enjoy.

The hardware shop has an extensive history in La Jolla. The store was opened in 1948 when the niece of Ellen B. Scripps along with her husband and son established the business.

Crazy. Local Rural King store has a machine, and supplies free popcorn to customers. They have a scoop, and bags. Customers love it. If someone came in and complained, or put bare hands into it, customers here would very likely kick their ass.

...serving (free) popcorn touched and handled by strangers.

Some people objected. Given that this happened in California, God knows what was on their hands.

No one was forcing the Gladys Kravitzes to eat it.

Some of the bars here serve free popcorn - why anyone would object is beyond me.

And extorting a business to apply for a permit for FREE popcorn is completely insane.

My small town in the woods has a hardware store that's been giving away popcorn in little bags for over 30 years, fresh-popped right there. I hope the Big Stupid Government nazis don't notice it.

In fact, when I moved there 25 years ago, the hardware had fresh-popped popcorn, but the 90-year-old movie theater (formerly burlesque) didn't - the cheap owner bought those giant prepopped bags. So we went to the hardware store for the good popcorn.

About 10 years ago, the theater finally caved in and started popping their own; they got tired of smuggling and no sales of popcorn.

So YOUR "solution", of course, wasn't to put up signage and keep customers out of the machine (like our hardware store) - you'd call in the stormtroopers to obliterate it as well.

Screw you. Humans have survived a long time without totalitarian control freaks like you. Government parasites exist only because we did so.

Forcing? No. But they weren't being honest, were they?

I would settle for a warning sign attached to the popcorn machine stating that other customers have been touching and handling the food barehanded and that diseases may be present.

That's the Libertarian way, right? Now, Gladys Kravitz can make a fully informed decision.

How about that? I posted before I read yours and my solution was the same.

If I misinterpreted your comment, then I apologize to you. Still unclear, but there you go.

If I misinterpreted your comment ...

I can accept either outcome.

A license is required. Others have them. He should, too. If that's objectionable or too onerous, then petition the city council to repeal the ordinance.

On the other hand, if we are to do away with the popcorn ordinance, then a warning sign should be posted so the consumer has all the information.

If I knew you were eating from it, I’d piss all over my hands... then dig my paws around all that FREE popcorn. Hopefully nobody notices that I don’t eat from it after I scoop a bowl out.
