To pick up where we left off last time as far as the disturbing Mandela Effect is concerned, we take a look at Jif peanut butter, which many remember as Jiffy peanut butter.
These days these recollections perhaps seem a tad absurd. If a product is in fact a product that’s been around for a long time, then why are people referring to it as something that has an entirely different name?
Well, there’s very good reason for that, dear readers. Last time we took a look at the Stove Top Stuffing Mandela Mystery, in which consumers believed the product to have been a Stouffer’s product. As it turns out, that was a popular misconception however, and there are those that believe that the product suffered, or rather its name, suffered through the dreaded and unsettling Mandela Effect phenomenon.
What’s the deal with the Jif Peanut Butter Mandela Mystery? Well, we’ll get to that in a jiffy, dear readers; for now, a little recap is in order…
To resume a wee bit more, the Mandela Effect is known as a phenomenon in which a large portion of modern society is convinced that something happened or a product was named something in particular, or even the lines of a movie or song were ordered in a particular way, but in the end those thoughts turn out to be untrue.
How can this happen, you ask? Well according to reports, this phenomenon was unearthed by Fiona Broome, and all because she and a bunch of other people mistakenly thought that Nelson Mandela had passed away in 2009, but yet he had actually passed away years later in 2013! Mistake, or is something more powerful at work here…something supernatural? And why?
Hence the Mandela Effect was born and boy did this phenomenon pick up some steam over the years. People were finding examples everywhere: That aforementioned Stove Top Stuffing example, and of course so many others.
In art, one example is as follows: Hannibal Lector in The Silence of the Lambs never says, “Hello, Clarice.” Apparently he only says, “Good Morning.”
And there are indeed many more terrifying examples. Terrifying because I too remember many of these in the ways that are now known as rather popular “misconceptions,” and perhaps you do too, dear readers.
As far as Jif is concerned, many remember the product as Jiffy, the package reading Jiffy as opposed to Jif, but as it turns out, it is now believed that Jiffy never existed, which came as a surprise to many, as a report at insider.com suggests.
The post goes on to say that people simply “misremembered” the info concerning this brand of peanut butter, but what if some sort of phenomenon changed the product name whilst we were all in our beds, sleeping…?
Food for thought, dear readers.
In the end it is rather unsettling, and there are many examples of this here phenomenon and we’ll be getting to them in future installments, so stay tuned.
But what about you, dear readers? Any weird occurrences with the Mandela Effect when it comes to the food you love that you’d like to let us know about?
