The Secret to No More Burned Popcorn! #PerfectPop #GoodbyeBurnedPopcorn



A few months ago, we took a long weekend to this fantastic resort in Missouri Wine Country. We had a house to ourselves and I looked forward to a few relaxing days with just my family. We love sharing a bowl of popcorn in the evenings while we watch a movie together, so I made sure to pack a box of Pop Secret along. Since we were only there a few days, I packed a box of 3. That was a big mistake. In an unfamiliar kitchen, I totally winged making the popcorn for us. The first time, I failed. The second time, I failed. The third time? You guessed it…I failed! I wasted all three boxes in one night. My son was disappointed and the house stunk like burnt popcorn!

If only I knew then what I know now! These days, I use the Pop Secret Perfect Pop App!

The Secret to No More Burned PopcornEveryone 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!

    The worse popcorn burn stories are when you are in your office and someone in the vending area burns the popcorn and that smell gets in your hair and nice clothes!
