Is there anything worse than burned popcorn? Not only does it taste bad but the smell lingers forever! What if I told you that there was an app for that?
Yes, Pop Secret has an app for the iPhone 5+ called Perfect Pop that helps you make perfect popcorn by listening to the popcorn in your microwave. It will buzz when your popcorn is perfect so you no longer have to worry about burning your popcorn.
After Dub went to bed Red and I decided to make some popcorn and have a Netflix movie night and what is a movie night without popcorn? So I gave the app a try and we ended up with perfectly popped popcorn. It was the perfect companion to The Breakfast Club. Yes, I’m that mom that relives my younger days by having my children watch the movies that I grew up with. Don’t worry, I’m not going to make him sit through the entire John Hughes catalog, just this one. And you know what? He liked it!
The popcorn smelled so good that even miss Freya wanted some!
You may be wondering how an iPhone app could possibly help you make better popcorn by listening to it. What?! When I first read the description of the app I thought the same thing. When I installed it the app asked to access my microphone and then it started to make more sense. If you place the phone within three feet of the microwave then the app determines the doneness of the popcorn by how many kernels it hears popping within a given amount of time. Genius, right?
So go ahead and download the app and make some delicious, perfect popcorn!
