  • Soft pretzel – 310 calories, 4 grams fat
  • Milk Duds (3 oz.) – 371 calories,13.1 grams fat
  • Edy’s strawberry iced-fruit bar – 120 calories, 0 grams fat
  • Small Popcorn, no butter – 400 calories, 27 grams fat or Kid Size Popcorn, no butter – 300 calories, 20 grams fat
  • Sour Patch Soft & Chewy Candy (3.5 oz.) – 375 calories, 0 grams fat

Personally, I prefer to sneak my own items into the theatre. I bring 1-cup servings of Kashi GO LEAN cereal, a Z Bar, or some free trade dried mango from Whole Foods.

I also frequently sneak in my own veggie/salmon combo. That’s right. I microwave the Green Giant Health Blends veggies, mix in a pouch of wild-caught salmon, and tuck the entire container deep into my purse. Of course, preparing a hot meal presumes that you know you’re going to the movies beforehand. But, you can keep the other stuff in your bag so you’re always prepared… no matter what you end up doing.
