There is something about walking into a movie theater that makes us instantly hungry for snacks. We know that there is nothing available but sugar, corn syrup, popcorn and whatever that stuff they pour over the top is, but we can't help ourselves. As with all other snack-buying opportunities in life, there are better and worse choices. The best movie theater food straddles a careful line between salty and sweet, is easy to eat and is always shareable. The worst movie theater food is smelly, unwieldy and makes you feel terrible after eating it.
Below, you'll find my ranking of movie theater concession snacks, from absolute worst, to absolute best.
