Perfect Pop App

In our family, Saturday night is usually deemed Movie Night.  Most of the time, we enjoy movie night together as a fam, but sometimes we invite friends over and make it more of a big deal.
The last time we invited friends over, I was a walking, microwaveable popcorn disaster.
I attempted to make microwave popcorn for all the kids – there were 13 of them.
After 2 of my own bags burned and reeked up the house, I had to borrow a couple of my neighbor’s bags as a last resort, and I sort of got it right.
But burnt popcorn smell lingered through the night and into the next day.  Sick!
The kids couldn’t have cared less, but seriously, what’s wrong with me?!  I almost resorted to making it the good, old-fashioned way on the stove!
BUT, my luck’s changed.
This week, I was informed of a brand new app: Perfect Pop!
I thought I’d give the microwaveable bags one last-ditch effort before I gave up trying entirely!
(Am I a total freak of nature!?)
So, I invited a couple of friends over (not nearly as many as before!)
I bought a couple of boxes of Pop Secret Popcorn
and I downloaded the app on the App Store*…(Perfect Pop)
The verdict: it’s magical.
perfectly popped bag of popcorn!
 So, here’s the deal: you load your microwave with a bag of popcorn and set it to the time described on the bag.  Start your microwave, and then immediately start your app (it’s ridiculously easy to figure out)
You set your phone next to your microwave (but not on or in) and a cute little kernel guy pops up and listens to your pops, waiting for the precise moment to let you know when your popcorn is perfect.
When it’s time, it tells you to stop the microwave…and really, I cooked 3 bags tonight, the 3 cooking times varied by 15 seconds, and each bag came out perfecto!
 the crowd-test-tasters approved
(Ignore the kid-proofed couch picture, please…I’m a little OCD)
 Have you ever burned a bag of popcorn?
(Of course, you have…I know I’m not the only one!)
If you have, leave me a comment with your horror story…or just a note to help me feel better about myself!  When you do, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card, compliments of Pop Secret!
