Life Hack Test – Removing Unpopped Kernels from a Bag of Microwave Popcorn [VIDEO]

Can you remove unpopped kernels from a bag of microwave popcorn by simply not opening it all the way?

On the weekends, my wife and I let our kids crash in the living and watch a movie since they don’t have to get up for school the following morning. And since movies and popcorn go together like chocolate and peanut butter, I’ll usually pop a bag of microwave popcorn for them to share while they watch.

Inevitably, there are several non-conforming kernels at the bottom the bag who refuse to allow the intense heat to transform them from teeth-chipping pebbles into soft, pillowy morsels of artificially butter-flavored heaven, which results in whichever kid gets the bottom half of the bag getting the raw end of the deal.

I stumbled across the life hack above after a friend shared it on Facebook, and thought I’d give it a try. To save you from of watching me shake a bag of popcorn for 60 seconds, I sped up the meat-and-potatoes part of it.

Is it perfect? No. There were still a fair amount of unpopped kernels at the bottom, and if I weren’t also holding my cell phone trying to record the whole thing, I would have continued the shaking for a little longer. Even then I don’t think it’s going to remove every last one, but I would consider this a success.
