Movie Theater Snacks, Ranked
Don’t be the lady with the hot dog
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.
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.
You’re not being virtuous, so move on.
19. Milk Duds
It’s been fun, teeth.
Worst supporting actor: orange cheese.
17. Sno Caps
Here we were thinking chocolate could do no wrong…
A movie-going experience should really be void of smells.
15. Gummy Bears
Usually amazing, but too much of a risk to eat in the dark. (Looking at you, pineapple ones...)
14. Sweet Tarts
13. Sour Patch Kids
Would be higher if not for the yellows.
12. Junior Mints
Kinda like that classic movie that everyone loves (but you) so you pretend to love it, too, to fit in.
Neither here nor there.
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?
5. Peanut M&Ms
4. Peanut Butter M&Ms
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.
As if we had a choice.
We never said these had to be sold in the theaters. Thermoses were invented for a reason, people.
