The Movie Popcorn Butter Hack for Tastier Snacking

All you need is a straw

An air-conditioned theater, a great movie and a bucket of popcorn--it’s escapism at its best. But can we talk about butter distribution for a second? Our butter only ever coats the top layer of the bag, leaving the rest dry and completely underwhelming. But thanks to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s ever-ingenious Titus Andromedon, we finally have a solution. Here, the ultimate movie popcorn butter hack. All you need is your bag of fresh-popped corn and a straw.

Step 1: Stick the plastic straw into the center of the bag of popcorn.

Make sure you position it deep inside the bag for ideal butter distribution.

Step 2: Align the butter dispenser with the straw opening.

The straw allows the butter to be distributed to the popcorn at the bottom and throughout the bag, instead of just at the top.

Step 3: Commence butter dispersion while moving the straw’s end around the bottom and throughout your popcorn bag.

Ahhh, deliciously buttered popcorn. (Now if only the previews were this good…)
