6 Better-For-You Movie Night Treats and Candies

Think back to when you were a kid: Was there ever anything better than spending your allowance money on candies and snacks at the movies? Big, colorful boxes and bags of neon-colored candies made with ingredients you couldn’t pronounce ... and chances are, you loved it. It’s time to relive those days, but now with candies and snacks and better ingredients (that still taste like your old favorites). It’s time to snack with childlike enthusiasm — just with better stuff.

The suggestion? Put these snacks on regular rotation for your at-home movie nights — perhaps with movies from your childhood. Make it a real throwback experience. Who doesn’t live for a little nostalgia? Before you shop, make sure to check your local store opens in a new tab first for availability.
