Plan on catching a movie this season?
With tons of blockbusters opening up over the next few weeks—Ted 2 (6/26), Terminator: Genisys (7/1), Magic Mike XXL (7/1), and Ant-Man (7/17), just to name a few—we’ve got movie-watching on the brain. And since summer and films are all about leisure and indulgences, the snack options that accompany the movie are key. So whether you’re a gummy bear lover, a chocolate bar enthusiast, or popcorn purist, here’s a roundup of artisanal treats that are upgrades from your classic concession stand faves. Don’t get us wrong, we love buttery, overpriced popcorn as much as anyone else, but a little gourmet touch never hurt anyone. Stock up on your faves or grab a pre-packaged bundle that'll satisfy a variety of palates.
