I was going to do a follow-up to last week’s 5 Things since I got so many suggestions for summer movies.
But then my son walked in with a box of Whoppers and, unsolicited, offered me a few. And not only did my mother’s heart get all warm and fuzzy (how low have my expectations sunk that a mere offer of chocolate from my pre-teen son makes me giddy?) but it also gave me an idea for this week’s topic.
Because sure, movies are great but everyone knows it’s the yummy goodness you eat at the movies that makes the experience all the more brilliant. Now, I rarely go out to the theatre anymore, what with movies heading immediately to Netflix/iTunes/On Demand, and what with our monstrous TV and all. But I can still buy me some movie candy, right?
Here, then, are the sweets I filled up my Target cart with in preparation for a slothful weekend in front of the tube:
- Hot Tamales
- Twix bites
As you can see, we like a nice combo of sweet and sour and hot. Also, we take into consideration texture and have a good balance of chewy and crunchy. Yes, we are deadly serious about our movie snacking in my household. What are your fave snack-y things when you go to the movies?
