6 Movie Theater Snacks Perfect For Sneaking In

Summer flicks are on the horizon but so is that car payment—need some ideas for movie theater snacks that aren’t outrageously priced?

People, you can’t just stroll into the movie theater with any ol’ snack—there two rules for the flawless execution of the movie foodie hack. If you want to avoid that awkward moment of being snagged with crunchy contraband… keep your munchies quiet and compact. Here are six fool-proof ways to see the big summer flicks while still having money left over for that humble-brag-worthy bikini.


Can’t live without the movie theater classic but don’t want to risk the incessant crackling of the usual plastic packaging? Cracker Jacks—all day, all night, my friends. The iconic box packaging is super-sly and its contents? It’s as classic as it gets in the category of popcorn.

Quench That Thirst

Overpriced high-fructose overdose? Nah…quench that post popcorn thirst with your favorite water—old school spring water, coconut, maple—whatever floats your boat. But ditch those commercial water bottles and upgrade to this classy collapsible.

Individual Packets of Trail Mix

Speaking of bikinis, it’s time to think about reducing that sugar to keep that summer bod beach ready. Individual packets of nuts or trail mix are a protein packed movie snack that fit easily into most hand bags. Look for low-salt or unsalted to maximize the nutritional oomph. Keep your tummy on trend with edgy Sahale varieties like Pomegranate Glazed Pistachios or Korean BBQ Glazed Almonds!


Chocolate is a total yes at the movies but the crackle-crackle of the wrapper is a total NO. Ditch the plastic for foil. Individually packaged Hershey Kisses or Dove Promises help keep you sneak snacks on the down low and unwrapping each tasty chocolatey bite will curb your inclination to over-indulge.
