Out of sight out of mind. In sight, in my shopping basket?!

I'm meeting my best friend tomorrow for lunch and to catch a film. I haven't seen her in about a week and have been doing well with exercise and better eating, but I always find myself more tempted when I'm with her. Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming my friend, I probably just use her 'influence' as an excuse. I usually pack some cut fruit and water for when I go to the cinema, but she always has a look in whatever local shop for sweets/crisps/cake/etc for when we're watching a film.....and that's when all the things I've stayed away from come into view.
What else can I do to stop myself from feeling tempted? I'm not really one for sweets, but cake and a good salt and vinegar crisp is veeeeeeeery appealing at times! It's a craving for Kettle Chips, the malt and salt vinegar kind, that gets to me but I've yet to find a good alternative to help curb the cravings without becoming completely anti-social and avoiding shops for the rest of my life!
