Has your popcorn ever fell victim to your microwave? Did you end up with that distinct burnt popcorn smell in your kitchen… that probably spread to other rooms in your house as well? My guess is that most popcorn eaters have accidentally burnt their popcorn, and likely on more than one occasion.
I absolutely love popcorn and I will regularly microwave a bag of popcorn while watching my favorite TV shows or during a stay at home movie night. Just this last Monday I had a friend over for a low-key night of watching one of our favorite guilty pleasure TV shows (I just can’t stay away from the Reality TV shows). We caught up with each other’s busy lives while lounging on my couch drinking wine and eating popcorn. Does anything sound better than that? Unfortunately, I didn’t know the precise time to take the popcorn out of the microwave and ended up partially burning it. It didn’t seem too bad so we ate it anyway. There is nothing worse than getting an unexpected bite of burnt popcorn. It has an awful bitter taste that lingers in your mouth for what seems like ever!
To avoid wasting time and popcorn, “PERFECT POP” has become my new ‘go-to’ app. Now I don’t have to rely on my own judgment waiting in front of the microwave listening for the pops and wondering if it’s too soon then realizing I waited 15 seconds too long. I have better uses for my time! Perfect Pop, listens to your microwave and helps make sure every single bag of Pop Secret popcorn pops perfectly. All you need to do is turn the app on, set your phone down near the microwave and let the Perfect Pop app do the rest for you. No more popcorn catastrophes! You can download the app for free on the App Store* by searching for “Perfect Pop” or find a link to the app on PopSecretLabs.com. Plus, the app makes waiting fun, with a cute little cartoon character that starts as a kernel and graduates to a perfectly popped piece of popcorn when the app notifies you that your bag is finished cooking.
