The craziest thing you ever snuck into a movie theater
I don't have a problem with the inflated prices of movie theater snacks as much as I have a problem with the selection. First of all, I think it's the stupidest thing that movie theaters don't normally serve coffee. Coffee/espresso drinks makes perfect sense when watching a movie. Second of all, where are the chocolate covered almonds? They have chocolate covered everything else.
Third of all, it's all junk food. What if I'm not in the mood for heavy, buttery, cheesy, sugary, and greasy? Sometimes I crave healthy snacks that make me feel good to eat, especially if it's late at night, but if I'm watching a movie in a theater then I'm totally screwed. I find saltless, butterless popcorn nasty.
So last night we had no choice but to catch the latest showing of The Hangover because it's the only time Suzy could secure a babysitter (her husband when he gets home from work). I came up with this totally genious idea to overcome my movie theater food anxieties. I boiled a bag of edamame (soybean) and packed them in a large ziploc to be put in my sister's oversized purse. I was pretty sure all the girls would be excited about the edible alternative I provided. Instead, they all kinda laughed, all 7 of them lol.
Although throughout the movie I kept hearing "dude, are you serious?" I very happily ate edamame straight out of sister's purse, drank water, and used Randy's nacho box to put the peels in.
So what's the craziest thing you snuck into a movie?
