GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A mid-Michigan family is shaking up the movie theater popcorn scene.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that 22-year-old Mount Pleasant college student Justin Kovitz and his father, Ray Kovitz, have spent the past year developing and selling a plastic lid that snaps over the rim of a popcorn bucket.

With a few shakes, moviegoers can evenly distribute butter or toppings over their popcorn. They call it Shake N' Share.

The lid is made at Display Pack in Grand Rapids. The Kovitzs have sold about 220,000 units and have invested more than $150,000 in the venture. They project to hit 1 million units sold by the end of the year.

The lid is now available at theaters in Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, California and Washington
