Everyone knows the best part of going to the movies is the food. (Sorry, filmmakers.) But alas, all movie snacks are not created equal. Here, our definitive ranking of all the foods you can munch on at the theater.

movie snacks chips2

23. Chips
Crunch, crunch, go away.

22. Hot dogs
Save it for the baseball game, when at least they’ve been sitting out for hours in fresh air.

21. Ice cream
There’s a time and a place. And this ain’t it.

movie snacks raisinets

20. Raisinets
You’re not being virtuous, so move on.

19. Milk Duds 
It’s been fun, teeth.

18. Nachos
Worst supporting actor: orange cheese.

movie snacks snocaps1

17. Sno Caps
Here we were thinking chocolate could do no wrong…

16. Pizza
A movie-going experience should really be void of smells.

movie snacks gummies

15. Gummy Bears
Usually amazing, but too much of a risk to eat in the dark. (Looking at you, pineapple ones...)

14. Sweet Tarts
Glorified chalk.

13. Sour Patch Kids
Would be higher if not for the yellows.

movie snacks jrmints

12. Junior Mints
Kinda like that classic movie that everyone loves (but you) so you pretend to love it, too, to fit in.

11. Twizzlers
Neither here nor there.

10. Skittles
Props if you make it through the previews without dumping the entire bag straight into your face.

9. Soft pretzels
Like a processed-carbohydrate hug.

8. Reese’s Pieces
Any form of Reese’s, really.

7. Sour Patch Watermelons
These count as fruit, yes?

movie snacks mms

6. M&Ms
Good.

5. Peanut M&Ms
Better.

4. Peanut Butter M&Ms
Best.

movie snacks cookiedough

3. Cookie Dough Bites
Serious question: Why are these only available in movie theaters? Follow up question: Why is the size of the box inversely related to the number of bites.

2. Popcorn
As if we had a choice.

1. Wine
We never said these had to be sold in the theaters. Thermoses were invented for a reason, people.
