I’ve mentioned before that our favorite inexpensive family time is having family movie night. So when I was invited by Pop Secret Popcorn to share some ideas for making family movie night more fun with popcorn, I was ALL IN!
Check out our family movie night fun and our “secret” to the perfect popcorn…
Make Movie Night More Fun with Popcorn!
Can I be honest? Sometimes on movie night… our popcorn is our dinner. (Shhh… don’t tell my mom!) So to make it a little healthier (pay no attention to the candy…), I decided to set up an easy popcorn bar for the kids. Here’s what I did…
Our Movie Night Popcorn Bar – YUM!
First, I popped the popcorn. And perfectly, I might add, using the seriously cool new Pop Secret Perfect Pop App.
How to use the Perfect Pop App:
With your iPhone 5+ on iOS 7+, DOWNLOAD Perfect Pop (“Perfect Popcorn”) for free from the App Store.
- Put a bag of Pop Secret in the microwave and enter suggested cooking time from the packaging. Note: Perfect Pop is optimized for the deliciousness of Pop Secret popcorn only.
- Turn up the volume on your iPhone. Point the phone’s speaker towards the microwave and keep within 3 feet.
- Start the microwave, and then start the app.
Perfect Pop actually listens to the popcorn popping and lets you know when to stop the microwave and take out your PERFECT popcorn! Brilliant, right?!
Our DIY Personalized Popcorn Cups
While the Perfect Pop App was babysitting my popcorn, I grabbed a permanent marker and added the kids’ names to some inexpensive plastic cups to make them their own special popcorn cups. They were so excited!
Then I prepared some small bowls of other snacks I had around the house: almonds, chocolate candy, cereal, pretzels, and chocolate teddy bear crackers. When the App beeped, I knew our popcorn was ready to come out! And I set it out with all of the other goodies and let the kids fill their cups!
And all of the goodies in our popcorn cups made our movie night snuggling on the couch just that much more yummy and fun!
