    Willy Wonka's Everlasting Gobstoppers. Kinda hard to wolf down fast, so they take a while to eat, and they really aren't terribly caloric, as far as candy goes.

    i would probably wolf down the whole box before the previews
  • freeze dried fruit c:
    i always get the funny look of "are those banana chips?"

    edit: and i bring like a small baggie of M&M's because i rather eat that than steal someones candy and eat a lot more of it

    Enjoy! I saw it a few weeks ago (got free tickets to the sneak peek)

    I usually bring stuff. Pretzels and crackers but normally treat myself to a soda. :)

    you literally can't :P they hurt your teeth to bite and you HAVE to suck on em for awhile before they're bitable !
    wow that sentence is so weird, but whatever. xD

    PopCorners (from the makers of PopChips). Delicious chips that taste JUST like popcorn, but with only 4 ingredients and low low low fat. They help me satisfy that urge to get move theater popcorn every time!

    thanks i'm pretty excited to see it. i love horror movies.

    100 calorie pretzel pack might not be a bad idea

    How about not eating anything at all? Eat before the movies....

    There's no reason we have to eat and watch movies....it's all in our minds.

    that might be true, but it's fun to watch a movie and have a little snack... i don't see anything wrong with that at all...

    what i do is get a gallon ziplock back and add random little things to it that make it a little mix. the last time i did that i had veggie chips (LOVE), wheat pretzels, and some raisins. i measured it all out and wrote on the bag with a sharpie "300 calories of deliciousness for the movies" just to be a weirdo lol

    sugar free jelly bellies or sugar free red vines and a massive Coke Zero. :-D
  • Nothing. I eat dinner before I go since I usually watch movies and eat dinner when I am at home.

    I don't even drink water because I'd inevitably have to use the bathroom near the end which makes movie watching uncomfortable.

    Normally get some soft pretzel bites with spicy cheese sauce.
    The wife brings some candy (usually includes Spree, Skittles, Peachy-O's, etc)
    And a giant soda....

    oh....you were looking for healthy items, huh? Oops.
