How To Make Perfectly Popped Popcorn With The Perfect Pop App



Movies have long been one of our favorite family activities, but with four kids--the youngest being only six months old--heading out to the theater isn't just expensive, it is inconvenient.  Family movie night at home on the living room couch has become a weekly tradition for us.  And, let's be honest, there is no such thing as a family movie night without popcorn.  It is so important, in fact, that popcorn is the only food that I allow to be eaten on the couch.  Ever!

Even without a movie, popcorn is one of our favorite snacks.  My youngest daughter often requests it as a snack when she gets home from pre-school.  Forty minutes later, when my oldest daughter walks through the door, you can still smell the popcorn that we have already eaten, so in goes another bag.  The same process is repeated when my oldest son walks in the door from junior high.  Walking into a house that smells of freshly popped, yummy tasting popcorn is a great way to be greeted after a long day at school.  That is, of course, unless you accidentally burn it!

Burnt popcorn is the #1 complaint people have about microwave popcorn, so Pop Secret created a new app, Perfect Pop, to help make sure that every single bag of Pop Secret popcorn pops perfectly.

Say that five times fast!



The Perfect Pop app couldn't be easier to use!  You select your bag size, snack or regular, and after you start your microwave, you press the start button on the app.  The app actually listens to your popcorn popping and will tell you the exact moment to stop your microwave, so that your popcorn is perfectly popped.  No more burnt popcorn and no more half popped bags!   The app even has a fun spinning kernel you can watch to help pass the time.  The dancing kernel is a big hit with the kids.


You too can have a perfectly popped bag of Pop Secret popcorn by downloading Perfect Pop on the App Store*.  And, you can leave me a comment and share your worst popcorn burning story to be entered for a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card!  I once burnt a bag of popcorn in the break room at work.  The entire bank smelled like burnt popcorn all day!
