Today is National Candy Day!
Yes, as strange as that may seem (because really, doesn’t Halloween kind of equate to National Candy Day?), there is an official date for the celebration of all things sugar-rush-inducing and cavity-inviting. So in honor of this special occasion, I wanted to see how you all feel about candy when it comes to watching movies. Or more specifically, how you all feel about smuggling your own candy into the cineplex in order to either avoid waiting in the concession line, get around paying inflated prices, or be able to snack on your favorite treat that simply isn’t offered at theaters.
I’ll admit that whenever I have time before a screening, I stop into a drugstore beforehand and take advantage of one of the always-running “three boxes of candy for $2″ deals. (My preference is either dark chocolate M&Ms or dark chocolate Raisinets, if you’re curious.) I also usually try to grab a small bottle of water. Thankfully I have a HUGE purse in which I can easily conceal these goodies.
But at least 50% of the time I’m running late and will end up paying through the nose for popcorn, candy, or bottled water at the theater counter. So I’ve never felt too guilty about my on-and-off sneaking-in-snacks habit.
What do you usually do? Do you ALWAYS bring candy from home or do you buy your treats at the concession stand because it’s just a part of the whole movie-going experience? Anyone out there think it’s straight-up wrong to bring food from home into a theater?
