Welcome to Pinterest Tested! Ever wonder if that miracle cleaner is really miraculous? Or what about that homemade facial cleanser? Does it work? This is the place to find out! Each Monday I am testing Pins that catch my eye to see if they really live up to the claims made on Pinterest. It’s like the Mythbusters of Domesticity!
This week I am testing two coordinating Pins:
THE TEST: Does it work to pop popcorn in a brown paper sack in the microwave?
So this Pin says that you can just throw some kernels into a brown bag and pop them in the microwave without any oil, no air pop machine needed. I was skeptical, but my husband was even more skeptical. He swore this wouldn’t work…something about the science behind popping and how you need to oil to make the kernels pop correctly. It took me some serious convincing to get him to even try it!
Guess what? It worked like a dream! And we’ve made several batches of popcorn lately… to test out the method, of course. Ahem.
THE TEST: Marshmallow popcorn recipe. Any good?
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 bag mini-marshmallows
Pop popcorn. Remove seeds. Melt butter, brown sugar and marshmallows in microwave. Stir well, then pour over popcorn. Enjoy a little bit of gooey marshmallow heaven!
