Use the Perfect Pop App from Pop Secret for Perfect Popcorn Every Time!

The last two family movie nights in our house were for Mommy and Daddy only.  What movies did we watch, you ask?  One night it was Frozen and the other night it was The Lego Movie.  HA!  It's true!

There is something a bit sacred about nighttime in our home and I'm guessing if you're a parent maybe it feels the same way to you.  Our daughter is in bed, the house is quiet, dinner is done, kitchen is cleaned up, lights are low, couch is calling.  Pop in a movie, let the previews roll, pour some drinks, throw a bag of Pop Secret Popcorn in the microwave, smell the butter, listen to the pops, spend a few minutes social media stalking my friends...

And then... what's that smell?

The relaxation comes to a quick halt.

Raise your hand if you can smell it right now.

The dreaded smell of burning popcorn!

If you're anything like me, you don't like to waste, so you just pour the popcorn into your bowl, pick around the burned pieces, and hope there is enough that didn't burn to enjoy. And then you smell that burned popcorn smell throughout your house for days.

According to Pop Secret, 1 in 3, let me repeat that... ONE IN THREE bags of microwave popcorn ends up burned!  Obviously this statistic is unacceptable and thankfully Pop Secret came up with a solution.  They created the Perfect Pop app!

No more relying on the popcorn button, guessing how many seconds in between pops, or getting so totally distracted that you forget to listen!  Pop Secret is serious about perfect popcorn, and the less you have to worry about, the more time you can spend enjoying your relaxing movie night at home!  Perfect Pop listens to the pops, waiting for the precise moment to let you know when your popcorn is perfect.

All you have to do is download the free app to your iPhone, follow the instructions within the app, put a bag of Pop Secret popcorn in the microwave, let the app listen to the popping, get some fun facts and trivia on your phone courtesy of Pop Secret, see some magic inside-the-bag views of your popcorn popping, and wait for the app to tell you when your popcorn is done.  It's super easy and super fun!

 Now, I will be honest that I did have this issue...

I'm not sure if it was a problem with my phone case or my microwave but we had some technical and sound issues and the app was not pleased that it wasn't able to hear my Pop Secret Popcorn popping!  But the popping hadn't even started yet!  Clearly I need to work on mastering this technology a bit more, and next time I'm taking my case off first, but in the meantime, I hope you'll give the app a try and let me know how it works for you!  

Despite my failed technology attempt, I thankfully ended up on the right side of the burned popcorn statistic and am enjoying some yummy Pop Secret Popcorn as I type this post!

Download the Perfect Pop app now so you'll be ready for your next movie night!

The Perfect Pop app can be used with iPhone 5+ on iOS 7+.
