As we celebrated our last school night, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the evening than eating popcorn and watching our favorite family movie of the month (here's a hint: there's a famous Dog involved). Lucy and Jack piled up in Erik's lap; Ella snuggled on the couch. It's the perfect night in my opinion.
I know we all have horror stories of burning popcorn in our microwaves, right? You leave the room for a quick minute, the bag and popcorn burns and then your house smells horrible for the next week! Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Just the other day I set off the smoke alarm trying to fix myself an afternoon snack. Wouldn't you love to have some kind of technology that would alert you as to when your popcorn is done? Well, I found the perfect solution.
As I was making the popcorn tonight I got the chance to try out this new, super fun app from Pop Secret. The app is designed to listen as the popcorn pops and then it will signal when the popcorn has been perfectly popped. Seriously, how could it get any better than this? I was really excited to give it a try.
The app is crazy easy to use. You simply put your popcorn in the microwave, hold your phone near (but not on or in) the microwave, and then hit "start" on the phone screen. It was really fun to watch how the app actually kept track of the pops it heard and then alerted me as to when the popcorn was ready. When I opened my bags the popcorn was perfect and there were hardly any unopned kernels. I was a excited as a kid in a candy store. Try it out and let me know what you think. You can download the Perfect Pop app for free in the App Store* or find a link on PopSecretLabs.com
My kids sure weren't upset about all my test runs. They got to feast from the spoils of war. All the extra popcorn will be put into baggies and we will have handy snacks for the next few days. The night was a win-win for all!
