The Secret to Perfectly Popped Popcorn – Burned Popcorn No More! #PerfectPop


The Secret to Perfectly Popped Popcorn - Burned Popcorn No More!

Thanks to Pop Secret for sponsoring today’s discussion. As always all thoughts are my own.

We eat a lot of popcorn at our house, it’s the perfect snack for movie nights, a fun treat for the kids and really, who doesn’t love the smell of yummy popped popcorn lingering in the air?

There is a trick to popping popcorn in the microwave. I’ve learned to not rely on the popcorn button, no body likes to smell burnt popcorn in the house. The last time my husband and I tried to have a movie night my mind became occupied with the kids, the microwave was ignored and we totally forgot about the bag of popcorn. It was our last bag of popcorn in the house, the house now stunk like no one’s business and I couldn’t even fathem eating the mass of black grossness in the bag. So I knew that next time it would come down to a trained ear or the science of the new Pop Secret Popcorn App.

I’d rather use the Pop Secret Popcorn app.. Why? Because it’s cool, the kids think it’s awesome to be able to help out and I personally love a perfectly popped bag of popcorn.


Everyone can relate to the frustration of burning popcorn, so Pop Secret decided to solve the problem once and for all, so you can spend more time enjoying movies and less time worrying about burned popcorn!

With your iPhone 5+ on iOS 7+, download Perfect Pop (“Perfect Popcorn”) for free on the App Store.

1. Put a bag of Pop Secret in the microwave and enter suggested cooking time from the packaging. Note: Perfect Pop is optimized for the deliciousness of Pop Secret popcorn only.

    The smell of burned popcorn can ruin an appetite and just one kernel can ruin the whole bag. This app is a great idea. Reply
