Fancy a movie night? You'll want these 8 tasty snacks

Bring the cinema to you!

Nichola Murphy

The nation is currently spending more time than ever at home amid the coronavirus pandemic, and many have resorted to swapping their social calendar for sunbathing in the garden, tackling overdue household chores and getting creative in the kitchen. But one activity that we'll never tire of is a classic movie night (or day) - and you can't watch a film without snacks! If you're looking for a way to relax inside during the rainy weather, then you'll want to get your hands on these tasty foods…

Popcorn

Popcorn has long been a go-to movie snack, but the age-old debate remains - sweet or salty? If you can't decide then why not try Popcorn Shed's flavoured packets which can satisfy both tastebuds, from salted caramel with milk chocolate to caramel and raspberry or even cheddar cheese.

Pick 'n mix

Although you can't physically go to the cinema and peruse the endless rows of sugar-coated treats, there are plenty of tasty snacks you can order online to get your pick 'n' mix fix. Fancy classic drumsticks or fizzy cola bottles? This huge mix of retro sweets has it all. But be warned, they're very moreish and we don't recommend eating them all in one go!
