Cover Your Movie Theater Popcorn in Butter With This Hack

This Movie Theater Popcorn Hack Makes Sure Every Layer Is Warm and Buttery

One of the best parts about going to the movies is the food. While we love a good bag of Red Vines or box of Snow-Caps, we really come for the popcorn. But while those first few bites are salty heaven, the butter never makes it very far down and you're forced to leave the movie a few times to reapply. Thankfully, as with most things, there's a hack for that.

TikTok user Layla Bron (@laylabron_) shared the simple yet mind-blowing trick to making sure your popcorn is evenly covered in butter every time: simply stick a straw into the bag or tub and pour butter into it so it comes out at the bottom. You can do this a few times at different levels of your popcorn to make sure you get it all. We're sure this hack has been around for a long time, but we're just thankful we've seen it at all. Now, to the movies!
