Don’t lie. You’ve snuck popcorn into the movies before. You’ve probably even snuck candy. And once, you even snuck a Ben and Jerry’s pint in. I feel you. I don’t particularly like spending $15 for popcorn and a soda either. You know you’re going to keep sneaking food into theaters. At least make it good and find the right snacks for your movie.
1. Suicide Squad (Aug. 5): Vegan Chocolate-Dipped Cookie Dough Bites
2. Pete’s Dragon (Aug. 12): Chocolate Dragon Eggs
3. Sausage Party (Aug. 12): Cinnamon Sausage Rolls
Okay, so it’s a little sadistic to be eating sausage while watching a movie about sausages who have feelings. But if you have a somewhat twisted sense of humor, you should definitely be eating these cinnamon sausage rolls while you watch Seth Rogen’s newest comedy.
4. War Dogs (Aug. 19): Fritos Chili
This movie is based on a Rolling Stone article about college stoners who became international arms dealers. Satisfy your own munchies with this Fritos chili, which sounds like any college stoners’ dream come true.
5. The Light Between Oceans (Sept. 2): Crab and Shrimp Rangoon
This movie is the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who struggle to care for a baby girl they found at sea. Yes, these snacks fit with the sea theme, but it also works because you’re going to need something deep fried and delicious to get through the ugly crying fits you’re going to have in the theater.
6. Sully (Sept. 9): Mini Cheesecakes
Captain “Sully” Sullenberger became a household name when he saved all 155 passengers on his plane by landing on the Hudson River. Pay homage to Sully and New York with a dessert that New York is famous for.
7. Before I Wake (Sept. 9): Espresso Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins
A young boy is taken in by loving parents, who are then tortured by his night terrors, which all come to life. You’re going to need a lot of caffeine because you’re never going to want to sleep again after seeing this movie, so give this espresso dark chocolate chip muffin a shot.
8. When the Bough Breaks (Sept. 9): Frozen Yogurt Banana Poppers
It seems right to use quintessential baby foods, yogurt and bananas, in your snack for this movie. Enjoy these banana poppers while you watch a surrogate mother try to destroy the family she was supposed to be helping create.
9. Snowden (Sept. 16): Baked Apple
As far as we know right now, Edward Snowden is still living in an undisclosed location in Russia after he was granted temporary asylum for three years. It makes sense to have a traditional Russian dessert for this snack while you watch his story. Try this baked apple, which only takes five minutes to make.
