Movie Theater Snack Attack!
Two Thumbs Up or Blockbuster Diet Disaster?

I love going to the movie theater but, hate walking past the food. My theaters don't allow outside food, I get around that by carrying a large purse. My only suggestion about taking your own popcorn is to put it in a closed container. I don't eat popcorn but, I love the smell. My weakness is whoppers. Marcia
We LOVE going to the movies and yes, we are ones who share lol. I do think we end up a little bit on the healthier side of sharing. We all (5 of us) have our own bowls that measure out to be about 2c of popcorn. We get a large popcorn and fill our own bowls. That makes me feel better and if there is any left, the kids can have it as I feel satisfied.

This article is helpful to those who don't realize the fat and caloric content of theater snacks! I actually work at a theatre, so I know how bad the company wants to push more, more, MORE into the stomachs of our customers. They've recently replaced the lower fat candies with bigger, more sugery candies at my theater and the drinks have lots of sugar too. And trust me, the popcorn, while delicious, is not the healthiest thing to eat. Don't even get me start on the "buttery topping"......
Yeah, we went last night and did the HUGE popcorn with a diet pop. Pretty ironic isn't it??? Oh, well......next time we'll choose more wisely. Have you ever tried to sneak your own popcorn in the theatre though? Not easy...

This was helpful for me because we go to the movies 2 to3 times a week. I love popcorn. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. I didn't know that some snacks were no fat or calories.
