Would you eat any of these vintage Brady Bunch popcorn recipes?

Popcorn, bologna and anchovies. They go together like Cindy, Jan and Marcia.

In 1972, the Brady Bunch were the kings, queens, princes and princesses of pop. Not only was their Technicolor television kitchen a second home for all of us, the blended family had also released five albums and launched a spin-off cartoon. There were Brady Bunch toys, Brady Bunch board games, and Brady Bunch lunch boxes. 

And, hey, what better to fill those Brady Bunch lunch boxes than some Brady Bunch recipes?

As summer was ending in 1974, the Brady gang — well, minus Mike, Greg and Tiger — gathered in the pages of Ladies Home Journal to promote the upcoming fourth season of The Brady Bunch. Because this is the ultimate pop family, Alice, Carol and the kids presented nine recipes featuring popcorn, in a piece titled "What's Popping with the Brady Bunch?"

Yeah, popcorn. It's seemingly more versatile than a movie snack. At least, Ladies Home Journey found a way to sneak it into everything from chicken dishes to desserts. 

Here are the recipes from the original magazine [via Very Brady Blog]. Perhaps you'll want to make one. Or maybe they'll turn you off popcorn for good.

1. Popcorn-stuffed Chicken

Good luck getting a kid Cindy's age to eat chicken stuffed with prunes, celery and vinegary popcorn. They'll stick with the nuggets, thanks.

2. Chicken-Cheese Pinwheels

Popcorn is in the filling and the pastry of this appetizer in a "jelly roll fashion." Only, instead of jelly in the roll, it's chicken, cheese and curry powder.
