Random question: Movie snacks

We all know how it works... You settle down to watch a movie and you just "have to" have those favourite snacks of yours to hand. So, come on then... What are your favourite things to snack on (and drink, if you want to include that) while you watch a movie?

At the movie theater (in the distant past, since I've not gone to one in a long time) I would definately get buttered popcorn and a diet coke (or pepsi).

At home - I just don't get the "munches" watching movies - I think its because the theaters have the unique "movie food" smell.

Well, at the theatre, it's always a bottle of water. I dont usually get a soda because I only sip a little during the movie (dont wanna have to get up and miss anything) and the soda ends up either warm or severely watered down and that's just plain nasty. I usually get a box of Runts to snack on or if Im wanting chocolate I'll get Tootsie Rolls , but not usually popcorn because the hulls like to get caught in my teeth. The bottom set are a trifle crowded so it's painful when things get caught in them. At home, I usually multitask while watching. Many times I work on my needlework, or address cards (Christmastime) or what have you. When I do munch, it's whatever Im in the mood for. One week it may be Oreo Fudgees, another week it could be icecream....I've had times when all I wanted to munch while watching was buttered toast and sip on a cuppa tea.

*nods* @ iggy...they do have that smell that the home doesnt have. I think that's why I dont go for anything in particular at home. In the theatre I crave the popcorn, but I generally wont eat it.

I'd prefer to eat popcorn, but since it doesn't agree with me anymore *cries*, I usually eat pretzels...washed down with ginger ale.

I usually watch movies at home. My favorite snacks are chocolate and white cheddar popcorn.

Usually I just drink water.

I love movie theater popcorn, and only get it very very rarely, so I do indulge when given the chance.

However, at home, I munch popcorn (prefer my electric mixer over microwavable), cheese puffs, or my fingernails. (MUCH preferably to have one of the first two, instead of my fingernails! *wink*)

Oh, if I'm watching a particularly sweet chick-flick, I actually rather like a mug of hot cocoa (spiked?!) and a couple shortbread or sugar cookies.

Since I go to movies at the theatre almost every weekend, I don't usually buy anything to eat. First because it's so expensive these days, and two I've either just had lunch, or will be having supper soon after. Every once in awhile I'll get a taste for popcorn or licorice, and if I'm thirsty I'll get a small soft drink, but most times I have nothing.

I know the smell you mean... I think they do it on purpose. LOL!

Runts? What are they?

I've never had pretzels in my life. I'd love to try a pretzel at some point though.

Sounds tasty! :)

Your "chick flick" menu sounds really tasty... Especially the shortbread! Mmm!

Fair enough! :)

AliceKay said...

We need to ship some pretzels to Tori.

*agrees with AK* :)

Runts... pressed candy in the shape of fruits and fruit flavored. I love the banana shaped/flavored ones. I still separate the buggers out by color and eat them one color at a time.

Oh... OK... Sounds yummy! :)
