As we mentioned in a recent article about movie theaters, candy, popcorn, and other treats have been part of the moviegoing experience since the 1930s. Over the years some of the selections have changed, but by and large traditions have been upheld. Not everyone likes to enjoy a snack at the movies, but if you do what I would like to know is which theater treat is your favorite?
The old standbys include popcorn (with or without “butter”), Twizzlers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Sour Patch Kids, Milk Duds, Junior Mints, Reese’s Pieces, Mike and Ikes, Hot Tamales, M&Ms (regular, peanut, etc.), Raisinettes, Goobers, Snow Caps, Lemon Heads, Skittles, Hershey’s chocolate bars, and Starbursts. With so many choices, it’s hard to settle on a favorite if you’re a candy lover. But if you had to pinpoint the one treat you simply could not live without if you were to have the ideal theater experience, what would it be?

FYI: As most of you know, the “butter” on movie theater popcorn is not actually butter. What it actually is, is primarily corn oil mixed with various flavor additives, as well as butter. Depending on which theater you go to, one such additive could be peanut oil. So those of you who are deathly allergic to peanuts might want to consult your local theaters on their “butter” ingredients (typically big chains such as AMC or Regal don’t use fake butter that has peanut oil because of this reason, but better safe than sorry).
