The time has come. After waiting what seems like forever, Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres tonight at theaters across the country. And it’s also one of the last Star Wars related posts here on SassySweetSF (see Star Wars makeup, Star Wars fashion and Star Wars pet accessories).
Paying a high price to get those movie tickets can be a damper on the wallet, but purchasing snacks is another feat. Movie theater popcorn is addicting, so obviously that is the one snack that will most likely be purchased (my hubby and I are seeing the movie tonight and share a layered large popcorn – regular, kettle, regular). Candy? Ice cream? Beverages? That’s a whole other story. In today’s post I’m going to share with you my movie theater hack for sneaking in a healthy snack that’s Star Wars themed.
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate covered raisins (Darth Vader!)
- 1 cup yogurt covered raisins (or any other yogurt covered goodness you enjoy) (Stormtroopers!)
- 20 blue M&Ms (light side)
- 20 green M&Ms (light side/Jedi)
- 20 red M&Ms (dark side)
- 1/2 cup almonds (dry roasted, optional)
- 1/2 cup peanuts (lightly salted, optional)
- Optional: handful of sunflower seeds
In a sandwich or larger Ziploc bag, pour in the dark chocolate covered raisins, yogurt raisins, three varieties of M&Ms, almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds (optional). Zip up the bag and shake it to mix all the ingredients together. Slip it into your purse and you’re set for your sweet and savory treat.
Another thing to remember, is unless you’re really wanting that large Coca Cola with light ice, put a bottle of water in your purse to sneak into the theater.
I hope you truly enjoy Star Wars: The Force Awakens tonight. I know I will! 🙂
